The Acoustics Research Group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Brigham Young University, Utah, has chosen Spectrum Instrumentation’s leading-edge digitizers and signal generators to form the heart of its new underwater acoustics laboratory.
Embedded systems, used in applications ranging from toys to advanced aircraft, use microcontrollers to execute specialized operations within a more complex system. Most microcontrollers are mixed signal devices using a combination of analog and digital signals.
The key to the much smaller MRI scanner design is the use of digitizers and AWGs by Spectrum Instrumentation that offer sub-nano second, coherence precision to generate the scanner-signals and capture the results.
The model M2p.7515-x4 is a half-length PCIe card that measures just 168 x 107 mm, it can be inserted into almost any desktop PC and features 32 parallel channels that can be clocked at speeds up to 125 MHz.
