High-Speed Data Acquisition



Data Acquisition Systems

Signatec's complete turnkey high-speed data acquisition systems featuring multiple channels for real-time signal data recorders and options for adding DSP and signal generation DAC playback. All systems come complete with GUI based software for performing all system settings, viewing digital data (either captured or generated), performing signal recordings and playbacks as well as the option for viewing data in either time domain or frequency domain.


Data Acquisition Software

Signatec’s GUI based data acquisition software allows for performing all system settings, viewing digital data (either captured or generated), performing signal recordings as well as the option for viewing data in either time domain or frequency domain. Software includes PC based Oscilloscope and Spectrum Analyzer, Digitizer Scope Application, FPGA Development Kits, Drivers and Libraries.


Programmable FPGA Digitizers

Signatec's programmable FPGA digitizers allow for the option for customers to implement their own custom in-line signal processing with available onboard FPGAs. Hooks and examples are provided to simplify this task in the available Signatec firmware development kits. Firmware development kits are available from Signatec as an option for either fixed real-time processing capabilities or for custom programming by the user.


Digitizers by Sampling Rate

Signatec's high-speed data acquisition digitizers by sampling rate, from 100MHz to 1GHz. Signatec’s high-speed digitizers maximize the quality of captured wideband signals, in terms of signal-to-noise ratio and spurious-free dynamic range over a very wide frequency bandwidth, with the ability to acquire and transfer data simultaneously with no breaks in the analog record.



Digitizers by A/D Resolution

Signatec's high-speed data acquisition digitizers by A/D resolution rate, from 8-bit to 16-bit. Signatec’s high-speed digitizers maximize the quality of captured wideband signals, in terms of signal-to-noise ratio and spurious-free dynamic range over a very wide frequency bandwidth, with the ability to acquire and transfer data simultaneously with no breaks in the analog record.



Digitizers by PC I/O Interface

Signatec's high-speed data acquisition digitizers by PC I/O interface, with options of PCI Express (PCIe), ExpressCard, PCI-X 64-bit, PCI 64-bit, and PCI 32-bit form factors. All of Signatec's digitizers feature a PCI Buffered Acquisition Mode that allow them to acquire data to their onboard RAM as well as transfer the data from the onboard RAM to the PC simultaneously. In short, the digitizer board's onboard memory is configured to work as a FIFO to provide ample data buffering between the digitizer and PC for the most demanding signal data recording applications.


Wideband Downconverters

Signatec Wideband Downconverter allow wideband signal coverage from 100 kHz to 27 GHz featuring a single RF input and 3 standard software selectable IF bandwidths, from 10 MHz to 100 MHz, or 3 optional software selectable IF bandwidths, from 10 MHz to 160 MHz. The carrier center frequencies can be tuned from 50 MHz to 27 GHz, using direct digitization below 50 MHz.
