The ADQ8-8C digitizer allows for compact and cost-efficient multi-channel system design. The analog front-end (AFE) of ADQ8-8C supports a wide variety of detectors and can therefore be used in many applications such as particle physics, scientific instruments, time-of-flight applications, and more.
“The combination of high channel density, advanced AFE, customizable real-time signal processing, and high data streaming rate makes this product a great fit both for systems based on a single board as well as large multi-channel systems consisting of a large number of boards,” said Jan-Erik Eklund, Digitizer Product Manager at Teledyne SP Devices in Linkopin, Sweden.
The AFE has programmable DC-offset, input voltage range, and input impedance (50Ω and 1 MΩ) with a 500 MHz analog input bandwidth. A Xilinx FPGA has resources available for customized real-time digital signal processing, and there is 1 GByte on-board for the acquisition memory and up to 3.2 GByte/s data transfer to a host PC.
It is available in PXI Express and MTCA.4 formats
