The Arbitrary Waveform Generators of the M2i.60xx Express series are available as 14 bit versions ranging from 20 MS/s up to 125 MS/s output rate. With these boards it is possible to generate free definable waveforms on several channels synchronously. With one of the synchronization options the setup of synchronous multi channel systems is possible. It is also possible to combine the arbitrary waveform generator with other boards of the M2i product family like analog acquisition or digital I/O boards.

In contrast to the parallel PCI buses PCI Express slots contain serial point to point connections. Each connection pair (lane) is able to reach a burst connection speed of 250 MBytes/s. The Spectrum PCI Express cards base on the most commonly used x1 lane slot type. One advantage of the PCI Express technology is the direct connection of each slot allowing a full transfer bandwidth for each single card. On the software side there is no difference between PCI/PCI-X or PCI Express. PCI Express is the bus standard for PC based systems for the next couple of years. Today's State-of-the-art motherboards normally have a couple of PCI Express slots but only one or two PCI-X slots. Spectrum's PCI Express x1 cards can be used in any standard PCI Express slot be it x1, x4, x8 or x16. Only some dedicated PCI Express graphics slots may not work.
