To connect your high speed high precision instrument with the device under test, other instruments, sensors or test equipment a matching adapter cable is needed. Spectrum offers a wide number of adapter cables for different connector types. Each datasheet lists the cable types that are suitable for each product.
A/D External Pre-Amplifiers
To acquire low voltage signals in the mV range with high speed digitizers there are several external pre-amplifiers available from Spectrum. These amplifiers offer switchable amplification of up to 60 dB and bandwidths of up to 2 GHz.
D/A Amplifier Card
As an addition to the existing arbitrary waveform generator products Spectrum is also offering matching amplifier cards that allows to generate higher output signals. These cards have a fixed amplification and are calibrated together with the arbitrary waveform generator.
Clock and Trigger Distribution
The clock and trigger distribution card is a simple and passive component that allows to synchronize several systems externally. An external clock and an external trigger event are synchronized on this card and then fed into a maximum of 17 independent systems. A system can be a digitizerNETBOX, a set of synchronized Spectrum products or a 3rd party instrument.
