Agilent Technologies Extends Coverage for OEM Market with New PCIe High-Speed Digitizer

Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the extension of its next generation of high-speed digitizers supporting custom on-board signal processing capability with the new compact U5309A 8-bit PCIe® digitizer sampling up to 2 GS/s.

The Agilent U5309A high-speed digitizer features two channels with an analog bandwidth from DC to 500 MHz, a large DDR3 memory for long acquisition time, and a very high data throughput with its PCIe 2.0 eight-lane interface. In addition, the U5309A includes a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA, which allows users to load custom real-time signal processing algorithms created with the U5340A FPGA development kit software.

The new PCIe high-speed digitizer focus is also on interoperability, reusability and upgradability. The software driver provided for both the U5303A and the new U5309A supports multiple programmable interfaces for easy integration of the data converter into existing environments. The versatility provided by the common architecture is further enhanced by the custom on-board signal processing. Companies and research institutions can implement their own algorithm as they develop technologies for high-end applications.
