Press Release Summary:
Based on PCI ExpressÂ® bus, multi-function DAQe-2500 Series can update up to 8-CH, 12-bit analog outputs simultaneously at sustained rate of 1 MS/s. System synchronization interface bus allows up to 4 cards to be synchronized for expansion of testing capabilities, while auto-calibration adjusts gain and offset to ensure accuracy. Scatter-gather bus mastering allows acquisition of large amount of data at high speed by transferring data directly to and from memory through DMA controller.
Original Press Release:
New Series of PCI Express® 4/8-CH 12-Bit 1 MS/s Analog Output Multi-Function DAQ Cards
Irvine, CA (May 31, 2007) - ADLINK introduces their new DAQe-2500 series of high-speed and high-performance analog output multi-function data acquisition cards based on the high-bandwidth PCI Express® bus. These new cards can update up to 8-CH 12-bit analog outputs simultaneously at a sustained rate of 1 MS/s. This series also features a hardware-based arbitrary waveform generation which frees up CPU resources for optimal system efficiency, even when all analog outputs are updating at full speed,.
This family of DAQe cards integrate up to 8-CH, 400 kS/s, 14-bit single ended analog inputs with programmable polarity. There cards are able to perform simultaneous analog input and output functions at full speed. Like all ADLINK DAQe cards, the DAQe-2500 series features an SSI (system synchronization interface) bus to allow up to four cards to be synchronized for simplified expansion of testing capabilities.
The DAQe-2500 series of data acquisition cards are also equipped with auto-calibration that adjusts the gain and offset to within specified parameters to ensure testing accuracy regardless of the environment uncertainty. These cards also offer scatter-gather bus mastering to allow the acquisition of a large amount of data at a high speed by transferring data directly to and from the memory through the DMA controller.
