Spectrum Instrumentation introduces a piggy-back module adding 16 additional digital lines to the 4 multi-purpose I/O lines that are standard on the PCIe-cards of the M2p-series (24 different digitizers, 8 different AWGs.)
Spectrum Instrumentation added DN6.59x series digitizers are all based on the latest high-resolution 16-bit ADC technology and come with a choice of maximum sampling rates (20, 40 and 125 MS/s) and bandwidths (10, 20 and 60 MHz.)
DESY, short for Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, is based in Hamburg, Germany and operates particle accelerators to investigate the structure of matter. The accelerators run 24/7 for international experimenters so it is vital to have equipment that can be relied on to work perfectly and for many years. Spectrum Instrumentation has become one of DESY’s suppliers of choice for digitizer cards for the past fifteen years because of its reputation for quality.
Over 140 digitizer cards from Spectrum Instrumentation are being used in the machine protection systems of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The cards are used to check that the particle beams have been accurately deflected.
The Stuttgart University has chosen a Spectrum Arbitrary Waveform Generator for their experiments in which single atoms in a diamond are replaced by nitrogen atoms. This method is a base for applications like a magnetic field detector at the atomic level or a qubit in a quantum computer.
The first analog module series available for the M2p platform is the new 59xx module family, which consists of four different speed options of 20, 40, 80 or 125 MSPS and the choices of 1, 2, 4 or 8 channels.
