National Instruments Announces PCI-Based 200 MS/s 12-Bit Digitizer
NEWS RELEASE - Jan. 10, 2005 - National Instruments today announced the NI PCI-5124, a PCI version of its popular 12-bit, 200 MS/s PXI-based digitizer. The NI PXI-5124 and NI PCI-5124 digitizers use the latest commercial technology to deliver more than 75 dBc spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) on two simultaneously sampled inputs with 150 MHz bandwidth. Both devices are based on the NI Synchronization and Memory Core (SMC) architecture, which features up to 512 MB of onboard memory per channel, fast data transfer and tight synchronization. Design and test engineers can synchronize SMC-based modular instruments within tens of picoseconds for high-channel-count and mixed-signal applications.
High resolution at fast sampling rates makes the NI 5124 digitizers ideal for a variety of measurement applications in consumer electronics, military, aerospace, semiconductor and medical device test. These devices offer additional features such as software-selectable 50 ohm and 1 Mohm input impedance, 4 GS/s random interleaved sampling (RIS) for repetitive signals and five trigger modes including video triggering.
Design and test engineers can use the National Instruments digitizers to rapidly develop a measurement system with Express technology using NI LabVIEW, NI TestStand or SignalExpress throughout the product development flow - from research and design to validation and manufacturing. In addition, the NI Spectral Measurements Toolkit included with the 32, 256 and 512 MB memory options offers sophisticated frequency-domain measurements such as power spectrum, peak power and frequency, in-band power, adjacent-channel power and 3D spectrogram for NI LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI.
