ADC cards in mass spectrometer for planetary space research

We have just discovered that the first 2013 issue of 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. J. Mass Spectrom., 48: 1–15. doi: 10.1002/jms.3104. These researchers work at the Institute of Physics at the university of Bern. They explain in the article how they develop a miniature mass spectrometer that could be used in future space mission to analyze the chemical composition of planetary surfaces, their moons, asteroids and comets.  They relied on 2 Agilent high-speed ADC cards to do the data acquisition and processing: the U1084A and U1082A check how in the article.
