Our PCIe digitizer in an OCT swept source engine

Image description: Follow this link to be routed to image related article. You see here on the right images captured with a 3D OCT system compare with ERM images on the left.  

We are pleased to publish the following press release which has been showing on the optical coherence tomography reference website octnews.org.  EXALOS and YellowSys team up with Agilent Technologies’ High-Speed Data Acquisition team to offer high-performance real-time swept source OCT engines.

 EXALOS AG (Switzerland) today announced that it has teamed up with the high-speed data acquisition team of Agilent Technologies Inc. and with the software/firmware team of YellowSys to offer real-time engines for swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) applications.

FPGA development kit: User point of view

The development and deployment of application specific signal processing algorithm are complete R&D projects. The in-house engineering resources are often not sufficient to allow fully dedicated engineers working on highly demanding application requirements. Therefore, Agilent high-speed data acquisition team (HSADC) has partnered with research institutes such as for example the Microelectronics Institute of FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. In this context, we have the opportunity today to introduce you to Mr. Dino Zardet, research fellow at this institute who we invited to talk about his work and relationship with Agilent HSADC.

Qualified to be shipped to space

Our latest posts concentrated on hardware qualification requirements which certainly is very high at Agilent. Some of you may still think it’s exaggerated. But when you know that some of our cards may be eventually being shipped in space then you understand why it’s so important. Remember back in January we talked to you about an article published in  the Journal of Mass Spectrometry Volume 48, Issue 1, published by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. features an article from Riedo, A., Bieler, A., Neuland, M., Tulej, M. and Wurz, P. (2013), Performance evaluation of a miniature laser ablation time-of-flight mass spectrometer designed for in situ investigations in planetary space research. Still skeptikal?

TDPAC spectrometer with Agilent U1071A

T. A. Webb, Leo Nikkinen Juan Gallego D. H. Ryan from Department of Physics, McGill University, published in October 12 an article available through Springer Link at: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10751-+012-0663-y where they, as quoted in the abstract:  present a simplified digital time differential perturbed γ − γ angular correlation (TDPAC) spectrometer that demonstrates that such instruments can be built using primarily commercial components and with relatively modest coding effort. The system handles data rates of 70 kcps/detector with a timing resolution of better than 500 ps, and has been used with both 111In and 181Hf. This instrument was built using U1071A digitizers. 

4 solutions for continuous acquisition of data.

The remainder of this application note describes four system configurations that support continuous data acquisition, the potential bottlenecks in those configurations,  and possible solutions to the bottlenecks. Throughout  the note, sidebars highlight Agilent digitizers and data converters that can be used to create effective solutions for continuous acquisition of data. Happy reading.
