For applications requiring extended electronic waveform acquisition and generation, Spectrum has announced a new storage system that works with their PC-based digitizer and generator cards to dramatically increase possible recording and replay times. The new system can be used with any of Spectrum's M2i, M3i or M4i series of PCIe digitizer or waveform generator cards and delivers data storage sizes from 1 to 32 TB with full support for continuous data streaming at rates up to 3 GB/s.
To keep engineers and scientists up to date with the latest developments in PC-based digitizer technology, Spectrum has published a handbook that covers the major product features of this powerful class of instrument and also explains when a digitizer can replace an oscilloscope. The 120-page booklet is printed in full color and includes a number of graphical images that highlight and explain key digitizer concepts and their application.
Spectrum released three new M4i series Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWGs), setting new standards in speed and precision. The new models of the M4i.66xx series offer one, two and four channels with each channel capable of outputting electronic signals at rates of up to 625 Megasamples/second (MS/s) with 16 bit vertical resolution. The combination makes these new AWG's ideal for generating high frequency signals up to 200 MHz with the best possible accuracy and fidelity.
For applications where fast electronic signals in the GHz range need to be remotely acquired and analyzed Spectrum Systementwicklung GmbH has extended its digitizerNETBOX series of LXI based instruments and released eight new models.
