GROSSHANSDORF, Germany – Spectrum Instrumentation in Grosshansdorf, Germany is introducing two high-speed PCI Express digitizers to deliver accurate acquisition and analysis of signals in the gigahertz range.
These PCI Express digitizers are for working with extremely fast signals in laser systems, semiconductor testing, spectroscopy, reflectometry, and many RF and microwave applications.
The M5i.3360-x16 and M5i.3367-x16 provide one and two channels respectively, and go up to 4.7 GHz for -3 dB attenuation or even 5 GHz for -5 dB attenuation.
Each card can sample at test and measurement rates as fast as 10 gigasamples per second, with 12-bit vertical resolution. The high bandwidth and fast sampling, helps analyze signals for frequency content anywhere from DC to the Nyquist limit (half the sample rate, or up to 5 GHz).
Users can make acquisition in single-shot or multiple-waveform recording modes. Multi-waveform recording helps capture events even at very high trigger rates.
The cards come with tools necessary to use them in a PC running either a Windows or Linux operating system. A software development kit enables users to program the cards with C, C++, C#, Delphi, VB.NET, J#, Python, Julia, Java, LabVIEW, and MATLAB.
