New Module Ideal for High-Energy Advance Physics Requirements

KeysightKeysight Technologies, Inc. introduced the M9709A 8-bit high-speed digitizer, providing 32 synchronous channels of 1 GS/s sampling in a single module. The M9709A, the industry’s unrivaled high-density solution, is ideal for multichannel applications in advanced physics experiments such as hydrodynamics, plasma fusion (Tokamak/Stellarator), particle physics and microwave astronomy.

The M9709A is a single-slot AXIe module, with 32 channels at 1 GS/s sampling rate and 16 channels at 2 GS/s when interleaved. The module can provide more than 500 MHz analog bandwidth. The digitizer also enables long acquisitions with its very large on-board memory of up to 16 GB.

To ensure high throughput, the digitizer provides a four-lane (x4) PCI Express Gen 2 backplane, enabling sustained data transfer rates of up to 1.2 GB/s. With four on-board Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGAs, the M9709A high-speed DAQ also optimizes measurement throughput and supports future customized implementations of high-performance data processing.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

“This new AXIe digitizer dramatically simplifies the creation of very dense data acquisition systems that include a large number of high-speed synchronous channels with a large set of full-scale range to maximize the user dynamic range,” said Pierre-François Maistre, R&D project manager, Keysight Software and Modular Solutions. “In advanced applications such as high-energy physics experiments, the M9709A provides excellent measurement fidelity from DC to 500 MHz analog bandwidth with up to 6.9 effective bits, 52 dBc spurious-free dynamic range and 44 dB signal-to-noise ratio, which unlock unique insight into your measurements.

The M9709A AXIe digitizer extends high-speed digitizers family and the Keysight’s portfolio of AXIe based modular products. With an offer of several AXIe chassis (2- or 5-slot), the module provides a fully operational system of up to 96 channels depending on the chassis configuration.
