SP Devices launches the world’s first 14-bit digitizer with 10 GS/s sampling rate

Following the success of SP Devices’ ADQ14 digitizer, the ADQ7 has been optimised to provide a higher sampling rate, larger Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), increased memory and data transfer rate and a higher bandwidth analog front-end. The ADQ7’s unique combination of high bandwidth and high dynamic range makes it ideal for demanding applications such as LIght Detection And Ranging (LIDAR), radar, mass spectrometry, radio frequency sampling and recording and Automated Test Equipment (ATE).

The ADQ7 hosts a powerful Xilinx Ultrascale XCKU060 FPGA which is made available to the user through a firmware development kit. In addition, to help shorten design time, there are a number of optional stand-alone firmware packages containing application specific, real time signal processing functions. These flexible firmware solutions make the ADQ7 the perfect platform for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) integration. 

Jan-Erik Eklund, Digitizer Product Manager at SP Devices, commented, “It is very exciting that we can offer the market a 14-bit resolution digitizer that maintains such a high sampling rate. This new digitizer’s unique performance shows our commitment to innovation and maintaining our position as the world leader in high performance data acquisition.”

The ADQ7 will be available in a multitude of form factors including MTCA.4, USB3, PCIe, PXIe, and 10 Gbit Ethernet and it supports sustained data transfer rates of up to 5 GB/s. A software development kit is included free of charge and supports multiple languages including, but not limited to, C++, C#, Matlab, Python, LabVIEW. The board can be operated under both Windows and Linux.

In my post about Silexica ( Silexica: Mastering Multicore ) I said that I like to use planes as an analogy for cores in a multi-core system. As I said there: They haven't got appreciably faster but you can have lots of them. If you want to transport 10,000 people from Lo...

Given that the industry is beginning to reach the limits of what can physically and economically be achieved through further shrinkage of process geometries, reducing feature size and increasing transistor counts is no longer achieving the same result it once did. Instead the...
