Flexible multi-channel digitizer with high channel density and open FPGA

LINKÖPING, SWEDEN – Media OutReach – 17 June 2019 – Teledyne SP Devices today announced the release of ADQ8-8C — a flexible data acquisition board with high channel density and an open FPGA architecture which makes it ideal for large-scale physics installations and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) product integration.

The 8-channel ADQ8-8C allows for compact and cost-efficient multi-channel system design. The versatile analog front-end (AFE) of ADQ8-8C supports a wide variety of detectors and can therefore be used in many applications such as particle physics, scientific instruments, time-of-flight applications, and more. Capabilities include:

  • AFE with programmable DC-offset, input voltage range, and input impedance (50? and 1 M?)
  • 500 MHz analog input bandwidth
  • Open powerful Xilinx FPGA with resources available for customized real-time digital signal processing
  • 1 GByte on-board acquisition memory and up to 3.2 GByte/s data transfer to host PC
  • Hardware trigger and highly accurate multi-channel synchronization capabilities
  • Available in PXI Express and MTCA.4 formats

Jan-Erik Eklund, Digitizer Product Manager at Teledyne SP Devices, commented, “The combination of high channel density, advanced AFE, customizable real-time signal processing, and high data streaming rate makes this product a great fit both for systems based on a single board as well as large multi-channel systems consisting of a large number of boards.
