Strategic Test UF2e-4721, UF2e-4020 Data Acquisition Cards

Strategic Test Corp. recently introduced two new 250 kHz 16-bit data acquisition cards for PCI Express. The UF2e-4721 has 16 analog inputs and the UF2e-4020 has 8 channels. Unique features include the options for dual-timebase sampling, synchronous digital inputs, asynchronous digital I/O and the possibility to synchronize up to 4336 channels. Drivers and programming examples for Microsoft Windows Vista, XP64, XP and Linux (RedHat, Fedora, SuSe, Sarge) are supplied with the card, as well as the SBench 5.3 oscilloscope program. SDK’s for MATLAB, LabVIEW, Agilent-VEE, DASYLab and LabWindows/CVI are available as options. Prices start at $4190 with volume/OEM discounts available.

Key Specifications

  • 32 mega samples memory — expandable to 2 giga samples
  • Continuous streaming to host PC > 120 mega samples/s
  • Effective Number of Bits > 14.7 bits
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio > 90.6 dB
  • Total Harmonic Distortion < -105.0 dB
  • The standard -3dB bandwidth is > 125 kHz

Each channel its own 250 kHz ADC for true simultaneous sampling, together with eight voltage ranges from ±50 mV to ±10 V, a programmable offset of 100% and input impedances of 50 Ohm or 1 MOhm, allowing each channel to be individually configured for the signal source.
