Flexible multi-channel digitizer with high channel density and open

LINKÖPING, Sweden–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Teledyne SP Devices, a Teledyne Technologies (NYSE: TDY) company, 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 (50Ω and 1 MΩ)
  • 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
  • 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
