Acqiris high-speed digitizers provide sampling rates from 100 MS/s to 8 GS/s and feature wide bandwidths and acquisition memories up to 1 Gpoints per channel.
Using high-speed 8-, 10-, and 12-bit analog to digital converters (ADC), Acqiris sets new standards in signal acquisition in the popular PCI, CompactPCI and PXI formats.
The small size and low power consumption characteristics of the high-speed 8- and 12-bit PCI digitizers, with sampling rates from 100 MS/s to 2 GS/s, and bandwidths up to 1 GHz, makes them ideal for use in small desktop and integrated OEM systems.
Applications include time-of-flight mass spectrometry, optoelectronics, and ultrasound for non-destructive testing and medical systems.
The PXI format offers high performance in a small, rugged package. The 8- and 10-bit PXI digitizers from Acqiris offer high accuracy and high speed acquisition, with bandwidths up to 3 GHz and sampling rates from 1 GS/s to 4 GS/s.
With the wide array of existing complementary instrumentation modules, with over 1000 PXI products currently available, including multimeters, waveform generators, and switch multiplexers, The Acqiris PXI digitizers are ideal for implementation in automated test equipment (ATE) as well as synthetic instrumentation (SI) systems. (Acqiris is an executive member of the PXI Systems Alliance, an organization chartered to promote the PXI standard, ensure interoperability and maintain the PXI specification.)
Digitizers in the CompactPCI format are ideal for use in large multichannel systems and integrated test systems. Applications range from large physics experiments and radio astronomy, to automated test equipment and desktop instrumentation for high-frequency signals.
With a range of 8-, 10-, and 12-bit digitizer modules, with bandwidths up to 3 GHz and sampling rates from 100 MS/s to 8 GS/s, the CompactPCI digitizers offer up to 4 synchronously sampled input channels per card.
Up to 10 digitizer cards can be synchronized using the Acqiris proprietary Autosychronous bus (ASBus and ASbus2) systems which distribute the necessary trigger and clock signals, and reduce timing skew to as low as 100 picoseconds. Acqiris CompactPCI modules are integrated into the turnkey MAQbox multichannel acquisition systems.
