High-Speed Digitizers handle large amounts of data.

Press Release Summary:



Available with 1 or 2 digitizing channels, 8-bit Cobra(TM) digitizers combine sampling speeds up to 2 GS/s, up to 1 GHz input bandwidth, and up to 4 GS on-board acquisition memory. Up to 8 cards can be interconnected within single chassis for applications that require several simultaneous digitizing channels. Arrangement achieves true multi-card synchronization due to internal clock distribution technology, and multiple timing features come standard.



Original Press Release:



Next Generation 8-Bit High-Speed Digitizers from GaGe



Optimal Combination of Speed, Memory, and Bandwidth

Lockport, Illinois (June 26, 2007) - GaGe, a worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high-performance PC-based digitizer and oscilloscope cards, today announced their next-generation 8-bit high-speed digitizers aptly named Cobra(TM). "These new 8-bit digitizers are fierce," said Eric Gillas, President of GaGe Applied Technologies Inc. "The Cobra CompuScope family of digitizers provides the optimal combination of speed, memory, and bandwidth as well as a comprehensive suite of new advanced features at a very affordable price."

The Cobra family of digitizers is available with 1 or 2 digitizing channels, sampling speeds of up to 2 GS/s, and up to 1 GHz input bandwidth. With up to 4 GS of on-board acquisition memory per card, Cobra digitizers are ideal for customers who need to acquire either large amounts of data simultaneously over long periods of time or an extreme number of short data bursts.

For applications that require several simultaneous digitizing channels, it is possible to interconnect up to 8 Cobra digitizers in a single chassis and achieve true multi-card synchronization thanks to GaGe's advanced internal clock distribution technology. Using short and controlled timing signal propagation paths and automatic timing calibration, this technology provides far superior inter-card time skew and jitter performance as compared to alternate external synchronization techniques.

Similar to GaGe's other lines of next-generation digitizers, such as the multi-channel OctopusTM CompuScope family, Cobra digitizers also provide advanced timing features such as Trigger Time-stamping, Clock In/Clock Out, Trig In/Trig out, and 10 MHz Reference Clocking. Powerful eXpertTM on-board firmware options such as Signal Averaging are also available.

The Cobra family of digitizers replaces GaGe's ever-popular CompuScope 82G digitizers. Offering more features at a better price demonstrates GaGe's commitment to their customers' long-term success and creates a competitive advantage. "This year marks our 20th anniversary at GaGe," Gillas adds. "We have been in this business for a long time, and we will continue to design and develop new products that take advantage of the latest technological advancements to satisfy our customers' challenging requirements."

GaGe's Cobra family of digitizers is compatible with GageScope® oscilloscope software that allows users to acquire and analyze signals without writing a single line of programming code. GaGe also offers powerful Software Development Kits (SDKs) for C/C#, MATLAB®, or LabVIEW® and other popular programming environments for users that want to create their own custom software applications.
