Back in 2005, B. Klein, I. Krämer, and R. Wielebinski from the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie in Bonn, Germany published the article A new generation of spectrometers for radio astronomy which presented a new generation of very flexible and sensitive spectrometers for radio astronomical applications: Fast Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FFTS)” based on the AC240 now U1080A high-speed digitizer with on board processing. Back then they were impressed by the powerful capacities of the latest FPGA’s which allowed them to build their narrow-band 50 MHz FFTS with 1024 channels and digital down-converter techniques as well as the new broadband 1 GHz FFTS with up to 32768 frequency channels.
You may wonder why we talk about that now. It’s because this year, we should see a new generation of FFTS coming. We know that one university is developing it at the moment based on our latest technology. Be the first to learn about it, send us your email address to be kept updated on that matter.
A new version of FFT option is now available on the most recent U5303A PCIe 12-bit high-speed data acquisition cardLearn more >
