Teledyne SP Devices Announces New 12-bit Digitizer with 1 GS/s Sampling Rate

Flexible, multi-channel digitizer with open FPGA for real-time digital signal processing


Linköping,Sweden Media OutReach - 12 March 2019 - Teledyne SP Devices today announced the release of ADQ12DC -- aflexible data acquisition board with open architecture and a generous set offeatures that makes it ideal for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) productintegration.

TheADQ12DC, with the dual- or quad-channel configuration,allows for optimized and cost-efficient system design. At the same time, thecompact modular approach and high-precision synchronization capabilitiesenables high channel density, making the ADQ12DC a perfect fit formulti-channel systems.

Theversatile analog front-end (AFE) of ADQ12DC supports awide variety of detectors and can therefore be used in many applications suchas RADAR, LIDAR, swept-source OCT, and more. With 12-bit resolution and 1 GS/ssampling rate per channel, the ADQ12DC offers the highest available performancewithout requiring an export license. Capabilities include:

  • DC-coupled AFE with programmable DC-offset and700 MHz analog input bandwidth
  • Open powerful Xilinx Kintex7 K325T FPGA partially available for customized real-time applications
  • 2 GByte on-board acquisition memory and up to3.2 GByte/s data transfer to host PC
  • Hardware trigger and highly accuratemulti-channel synchronization capabilities
  • Stand-alone firmware options for pulsedetection and waveform averaging
  • Available in the cost effective compactsingle-slot PCI Express (PCIe) format (Generation 2 by 8 lanes).

Jan-Erik Eklund, Digitizer Product Manager at Teledyne SP Devices,commented, "The combination of advancedAFE, customizable real-time signal processing, and high data streaming ratemakes this product perfect for the most challenging applications on the markettoday."
