LXI Digitizers For Multi-Channel High-Frequency Signal Capture And Analysis

Spectrum Instrumentation has announced the launch of the new DN6.22x series of LXI digitizers in order to boost Multi-channel high-frequency signal acquisition and analysis. The new series extends the company's lineup of popular digitizerNETBOX products by adding eight models that feature high-channel count, fast sampling rates and wide bandwidth.

The digitizerNETBOX products are complete instruments that include all the tools necessary to capture, digitize and analyze electronic signals. They are simple connect-to-use devices, which after connected to a host computer (e.g. laptop or workstation) require only Spectrum's SBench 6 software to function. Standard with every unit, SBench 6 lets the user control all the digitizer's operating modes and hardware settings from one simple, easy-to-use, graphical user interface. The software also has a host of built-in features for waveform display, data analysis and documentation. Acquired and analyzed waveforms can be stored and exported to other devices or other software programs in a variety of formats such as MATLAB, ASCII, binary and wave.

The entry level DN6.221 models offer versions with 12, 16, 20 and 24 channels, with each channel capable of sampling electronic signals at rates up to 1.25 GS/s. The top-of-the-line DN6.225 series increases performance by allowing up to 12 channels to sample at 2.5 GS/s or 6 channels at 5 GS/s. Each channel of a DN6.22x series digitizer features its own analog-to-digital converter (ADC), large acquisition memory (1 GSample/channel) and independent signal conditioning circuitry. The ADCs are clocked synchronously to ensure that inter-channel timing measurements can be made with the best possible accuracy as well as maintaining a constant phase relationship.

Some of the technical highlights of the product are:

  • Up to 24 channels sampling at 1.25 GS/s, 12 channels at 2.5 GS/s and 6 channels at 5 GS/s
  • Fully synchronous sampling on all channels
  • Independent amplifiers with 500 MHz or 1.5 GHz bandwidth on each channel
  • GBit Ethernet interface for easy network or PC connection
  • SBench 6-Pro software for waveform display, analysis, control and documentation
