Low-Cost National Instruments Data Acquisition Boards Deliver Simultaneous- Sampling Rates up to 3 MS/s on Desktop Computers

NEWS RELEASE - Aug. 23, 2005 - National Instruments today announced four new simultaneous-sampling S Series data acquisition (DAQ) devices for the PCI bus, raising the performance of PC-based instrumentation with simultaneous-sampling rates up to 3 MS/s. The NI PCI-6133, NI PCI-6132, NI PCI-6123 and NI PCI-6122 boards offer high-density, low-cost options ideal for general-purpose data acquisition and automated test, ultrasonics, ballistics, acoustics, high-energy physics and radar applications. In addition to the 3 MS/s sampling rates offered in the PCI-6133 and PCI-6132, all four boards deliver NI S Series DAQ features, including improved throughput per channel and accuracy at low costs. The dedicated A/D converter per channel architecture provides a much higher aggregate sampling rate compared to traditional multiplexed data acquisition devices. The PCI-6133 and PCI-6132 boards also include eight and four channels of simultaneous sampling, respectively; 14 bits of resolution; four signal input ranges; analog triggering; eight hardware-timed digital I/O (DIO) lines and two counter/timers. The PCI-6123 and PCI-6122 boards include eight and four channels of simultaneous sampling at rates of 500 kS/s, respectively; 16 bits of resolution; four signal input ranges; analog triggering; eight hardware-timed DIO lines and two counter/timers. With more advanced signal conditioning connectivity, engineers now can create an inexpensive transient recorder, downconverter digitizer or high-speed strain measurement device with a typical PC. With lower costs and easier-to-use programming interfaces, these devices replace many traditional VXI, CAMAC and boxed instruments. Each of the four new S Series DAQ boards seamlessly integrates with National Instruments software including NI-DAQmx, SignalExpress, the LabVIEW graphical development environment, VI Logger data-logging software, the LabVIEW Sound and Vibration Toolkit and the LabVIEW Signal Processing Toolkit.
