ADLINK Technology launched the PCIe-9842 PCI Express digitizer. The PCIe-9842 features 11.3 effective number of bits (ENOBs), 70 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), 100 MHz bandwidth analog input, ±1 V Input range with 50 Ω input impedance, and 200 MS/s sampling rate of 14 bits of data across one channel. The ADLINK PCIe-9842 is ideal for applications like light detection and ranging (LIDAR) tests, optical fiber tests, and radar signal acquisition. The PCIe-9842 PCI Express digitizer is available now for $3,000.
Signatec introduced the PX1500-4 high-speed digitizer. The PX1500-4 captures four synchronized channels at sampling rates up to 1.5 GHz, or two synchronized channels up to an amazing 3 GHz when interleaving the ADC data. Dual embedded Virtex-5 FPGAs control the PX1500-4 board functionality with available DSP Slice and logic resources optionally available in both chips for custom in-line signal processing. Signatec’s PX1500-4 is currently shipping with a 6 week delivery forecast.
