In the coming weeks, we will introduce you to our manufacturing representatives around the world starting with Europe. They will briefly describe what they do and how many they but also give you their feeling about the future of high-speed digitizers. We start today with Neomore based in France. Mr Nicolas Stenko is the person of contact within Neomore when it comes to Agilent high-speed digitizers.
Agilent ADC technology: Briefly describe your company : number of employees, dedicated markets, products lines beside digitizers if any.
Nicolas Stenko: Founded in 2003 by embedded tools experts, NeoMore offers complete solutions for real time and embedded software development. NeoMore’s portfolio includes Hardware and Software Development tools and a complete range of bus analyzers as well as industrial boards and computers.
A: Why have you chosen to represent Agilent high-speed digitizers product line?
NS: Because the Agilent high speed digitizers are high performance and high quality products matching our customers needs for fast time to market , low cost of ownership technology
A: If you were to give 3 competitive advantages to Agilent digitizers which would they be?
NS: 1) Off-the-shelf technology for data acquisition above 100MHz bandwidth 2) High performance in small footprint 3) Excellent Support quality.
A: If you were to recommend some reading on digitizer technology or usage of digitizer in a specific application what would that be?
NS: There is a nice text showing “Academic publications on use of Agilent high Speed Digitizers : http://cp.literature.agilent.com/litweb/pdf/5991-0849EN.pdf
The article “Capturing Events of Long Duration or High Data Volume” http://cp.literature.agilent.com/litweb/pdf/5990-7734EN.pdf also gives a good vision of what high speed digitizers are capable of.
A: What is the future of products such as the Agilent high-speed digitizer. How do you think will they evolve?
NS: I see two trends: one is the miniaturization, instruments were in the past standalone boxes, and for several years, the same functions became integrated in single boards and modules. This trend is going on with a higher density of acquisition channels. The other trend is the local data processing. With the increasing performance ( if you double a sampling rate, you need twice the memory capacity to record the same event ) the only way to keep relevant information is to decimate and process the data locally.Discarding useless data, like out of scope parts of signal, averaging, correlation, FFT’s will be more frequent ‘on-board’ processing in the future.
