The M5i.3367-x16 from Spectrum Instrumentation is a 2-Channel High-Speed Digitizer. This 12-bit digitizer supports sampling rates of up to 10 GS/s (1 channel) and has a signal bandwidth from 1 to 4.7 GHz. The high bandwidth, combined with fast sampling, allows signals to be analyzed for frequency content anywhere from DC to the Nyquist limit (half the sample rate, or up to 5 GHz). It has a separate ADC and amplifier per channel and supports simultaneous sampling on all channels. This digitizer is ideal for working with extremely fast signals in laser systems, semiconductor testing, spectroscopy, reflectometry, and a wide variety of RF applications.
The M5i.3367-x16 digitizer offers a wide variety of trigger modes which include a standard triggering mode based on a signal level and slope, like that found in most oscilloscopes. It supports multiple recording modes which allows the recording of several trigger events with an extremely short re-arming time.
The M5i.3367-x16 is delivered with drivers for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows 11 (each 32 bit and 64 bit) and has full Linux support. It comes with a base license of SBench 6, the easy-to-use graphical operating software for Spectrum cards. The base license makes it possible to test the card, display acquired data, and make some basic measurements. This digitizer also supports popular third-party software products such as LabVIEW or MATLAB. It uses a PCI Express x16 Gen 3 connection and can be used in PCI Express x16 slots with hosts supporting Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, or Gen4. The maximum sustained data transfer rate is more than 12.8 GB/s per slot on systems.
This digitizer is available in a housing that measures 241 x 107 x 40 mm and is equipped with SMA connectors (for the analog signals and clock input/output), trigger input, and four multi-function I/O connectors. These multi-function connectors can be individually programmed to perform different functions. The M5i.3367-x16 provides excellent performance with the combination of high resolution, high sampling rate, and high bandwidth and is ideal for LIDAR or RADAR, fiber optics, mass spectroscopy, and RF recording applications.
