Minimum-Footprint Solution Delivers Unprecedented Channel Density
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 14, 2014
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced an eight-channel version of its U5309A 8-bit single-slot PCIe® Gen2 digitizer with on-board processing, providing unprecedented channel density and minimum footprint at this level of performance.
Until now, customers requiring an eight-channel data acquisition system had to order a three-slot cPCI chassis, including two digitizer modules and an interface card to the computer. Today they can select the single-slot, eight-channel U5309A PCIe digitizer, which has multiple advantages in cost, reliability and performance-as well as the tremendous size reduction into a single slot card. The installation is as simple as a direct plug into the computer PCIe slot, immediately providing eight channels of simultaneous acquisition.
Size evolution from cPCI to Agilent’s new single-slot eight-channel 8-bit PCIe Gen2 digitizer
“This eight-channel product should interest universities and research institutes looking for a cost-effective, high-density, very reliable and high-performance high-speed digitizer,” said Agilent’s Jean-Luc Lehmann, product manager, Embedded OEM. “New applications will certainly benefit from this product, leveraging its high-channel density-particularly for OEM customers, where small footprint is an important factor.”
The eight channels at 1GS/s version increases the offering of the U5309A product recently launched with its two-channel version. Channels can be interleaved to reach a 2 GS/s sampling rate. Applications will also benefit from the high data throughput provided by the Gen2 eight-lane PCIe bus and the possibility to implement real-time signal processing algorithms into the on-board FPGA. Custom processing for the PCIe digitizer family (U5309A and U5303A) is created using the U5340A FPGA development kit.
The eight-channel option is available now on the U5309A, 8-bit, high-speed PCIe high-speed digitizer; please firstname.lastname@example.org.
