A/D | Digitizers | Transient Recorders
Digitizers are the standard tool to get analog data into a PC for further processing. They differ in the platform, sampling rate, resolution, number of channels, memory and different modes available. There are different names for the same type of product: A/D cards, Digitizers, Transient Recorders, Data Acquisition Cards, Scope Cards, PC Scope, Signal Capture Card and more. Learn more
The A/D product can either come in the form of a plug-in card, as a remote/Ethernet instrument or as a complete system containing the A/D acquisition part, an integrated PC and the operating software SBench 6.
Mixed Mode DAQ
Most of Spectrum digitizers and A/D cards allow to be used as a mixed mode DAQ (data acquisition) device by combining analog and digital channels in one system. The combination can either be done by adding digital input options into the card making a single card mixed mode DAQ out of it or by combining tow or more cards using the internal Star-Hub. Combining digitizers with digital waveform acquisition cards can generate a mixed mode DAQ system with a wiede variety of channel combinations.
Common Applications for Digitizers
The Spectrum Digitizer is a high precision tool that can be used in a huge variety of applications. Some of them are:
- Radar and Lidar data acquisition
- Research and Development
- OEM Products
- Mixed Mode DAQ
- more Applications
A/D products sorted by sampling speed
The sampling speed is the main differentiation between the products. Sampling speed should be selected according to the expected signal frequency. Read more
