Press Release Summary:
CompuScope 1220 provides 2 input channels, 12 bit vertical resolution, 20 MS/s simultaneous sampling rate, and 10 MHz bandwidth on most input ranges. Card also offers external triggering and external clocking, with 20 MHz to 1 kHz frequency range. Input ranges as low as Â±50 mV as well as AC/DC coupling and 50 ohms/1 Mohms impedances are software-controlled. Product can also be equipped with up to 2 GigaSamples of on-board memory.
Original Press Release:
Versatile 12 bit, 20 MS/s Digitizer for Test and Imaging Systems
Montreal, Canada (January 5, 2004) - Gage Applied Technologies, Inc., today announced yet another product launch, the fourth in the last 2 months! The new CompuScope 1220 was designed based on the requirements of scientists and engineers in the fields of ultrasonic testing, SONAR and LIDAR imaging systems. The card combines the advantages of 12 bit resolution with the wide range of externally clocked sampling rates required for such tightly integrated systems.
"Through the on-going dialog between Gage and its customers, it became clear that there was a demand for a very high performance digitizer that is capable of being externally clocked at frequencies as high as twenty megaHertz, but also as low as a few kiloHertz," stated Ted Briggs, Technology Manager at Gage Applied Technologies. "Our development team accepted the challenge and delivered the CompuScope 1220, which provides best-in-class performance at a very reasonable price."
The CompuScope 1220 provides two input channels, 12 bit vertical resolution, 20 MS/s simultaneous sampling rate, 10 MHz bandwidth on most input ranges, external triggering and external clocking. Input ranges as low as ± 50 mV as well as AC/DC coupling and 50 Ohms / 1 MOhms impedances are all software-controlled for maximum versatility. DC Accuracy is typically ± 0.5% of full-scale input. The card can also be equipped with up to 2 GigaSamples of on-board memory. Up to 8 CompuScope 1220 cards can be combined as a Master/Slave system to provide up to 16 simultaneous input channels.
Unlike other digitizers on the market, the CompuScope 1220 features a wide external clock frequency range: from 20 MHz down to 1 kHz. This wide range allows the use of this digitizer in applications in which the clock frequency can vary based on external inputs.
Completely programming-free operation of the CompuScope 1220 is possible with the world-renowned GageScope® oscilloscope software, allowing the user to easily setup the digitizer and acquire, view, archive and analyze signals. Gage also offers Software Development Kits (SDKs) for C/C++, MATLAB®, of course the very popular LabVIEW® environment, with support for Windows 95/98, NT, XP and Windows 2000.
Availability and Pricing
The CompuScope 1220 is available immediately with a projected lead-time of 3 weeks ARO for small quantity orders. List price for the CompuScope 1220 starts at US$2,495 for the base memory model (1 megaSample). Volume-based discounts are available to qualified OEMs.
