The Spectrum M4i.77xx series of Digital Data Acquisition cards represent a major performance breakthrough for test engineers who require high-speed digital data logging with multi-channel logic analysis over extended time periods. Based on Spectrum's proven M4i series PCI Express (PCIe) platform the cards are small and compact. Each card comes equipped with 32 fully synchronous channels, large 4 GB on-board memory and a PCI Express x8 Gen 2 interface that offers outstanding data streaming performance.
Five different models are available with two offering differential inputs, for LVDS, (LV)PECL, (N)ECL and other differential signals, and three models with single-ended inputs for logic levels of 1.2, 1.5, 1.8, 2.5, 3.3, and 5.0 V. The cards are equipped with two VHDCI connectors for the digital channels as well as for the external trigger, clock input and clock output.
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 has announced the release of five new M4i series Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWG's) that set new standards in speed and precision.
