Difference between 46, 47, 49 and 59 series

46xx Series Overview

This product is obsolete!

The 46xx series is available for PCI Express, PCI, PXI, cPCI and Ethernet/LXI. It offers 2 to 8 synchronous channels with sampling rate between 200 kS/s and 3 MS/s. The 46xx series has the most versatile and powerful input amplifer stage of all three series and offers best signal quality. The 46xx series is first choice when mixing differential signals and single-ended signals or when needing differential inputs only. For signals in the range from audio until 1 MHz the series offers best dynamic performance.

47xx Series Overview

This product is obsolete!

The 47xx series is available for PCI Express, PCI, PXI and cPCI. It offerst 8 or 16 synchronous channels with sampling rates between 100 kS/s and 1.33 MS/s. The 47xx series has a high performance single-ended input amplifer. The 47xx series is best choice if a large number of synchrnous channels are needed and there is no need for differential inputs. It also lacks a few features of the other two series.

49xx Series Overview

This products is obsolete!

The 49xx series is available for PCI Express, PCI, PXI, cPCI and Ethernet/LXI. It offers 2 to 8 synchronous channels with sampling rates between 10 MS/s and 60 MS/s. The 49xx series has a high bandwidth and a powerful input amplifer stage with single-ended and differential inputs and 50 ohm termination. Due to the optimized input stage it offers best price/performance ratio for sampling rates between 1 MS/s and 60 MS/s

59xx Series Overview

The 59xx series is available for PCI Express and Ethernet/LXI. The serie is the successor of the 49xx series. Please see the product change notification for more details: PDN. It offers 1 to 8 synchronous channels with sampling rates between 5 MS/s and 125 MS/s. The 59xx series has a high bandwidth and a powerful input amplifer stage with single-ended and differential inputs and 50 ohm termination. Due to the optimized input stage it offers best price/performance ratio for sampling rates between 5 MS/s and 125 MS/s
