ATS9870 GigaSample waveform digitizer
Aug 20, 2009
ATS9870 GigaSample waveform digitizerThe ATS9870 is a GigaSample waveform digitizer based on the 8-lane PCI Express bus. With its advanced PCI Express bus interface, ATS9870 allows very fast data throughput to PC memory. Benchmarks run by the manufacturer show rates as high as 1.4 GB/s for sustained throughput over many hours. This level of sustained throughput is virtually unheard of in the industry and enables many applications for RF signal recording, radar, spectroscopy, and tomography that were previously not possible without building custom hardware. ATS9870 offers two simultaneous analog inputs that can each be sampled at rates up to 1 GS/s (one 8 bit 1 GSPS ADC per channel), providing Signal to Noise Ratio in excess of 40 dB. Each channel can have up to 4 Gigabytes of onboard, dual port acquisition memory buffer. The unit occupies only one half-length PCI Express x8 or x16 slot. ATS9870 features Dual Port Acquisition Memory that allows transfer of acquired data to PC memory without having to stop the acquisition session, allowing users to build real-time systems that are not affected by the non-real-time nature of Windows and Linux operating systems.
