High-speed digitiser product line expanded

10 November 2008

National Instruments has announced the expansion of its digitiser product line with the introduction of three digitisers/PC-based oscilloscopes. The 500 MHz NI PXI-5153 and NI PCI-5153 and the 1 GHz NI PCI-5154. Engineers can take advantage of a complete line of high-speed digitisers – with 300 MHz, 500 MHz and 1 GHz bandwidths – for demanding automated test and streaming applications where high-bandwidth measurements are required.

NI 515x digitisers are the first high-bandwidth digitisers on the market with three characteristics that make them optimised for automated test – tight synchronisation between channels, ease of integration with other instrumentation and high data throughput. Using T-Clock technology, which synchronises multiple instruments and was patented by National Instruments, engineers can integrate NI 515x digitisers with a variety of NI hardware, to customise and build a complete, automated mixed-signal test system. Engineers can also synchronise multiple digitisers to build systems with up to 34 channels in a single PXI chassis, all simultaneously sampling at 1 GS/s and synchronised to picosecond-level accuracy between modules.

The PXI platform, upon which NI high-speed digitisers are built, provides measurement throughput up to 10 times faster than alternative instrument architectures because of the high-bandwidth and low-latency PCI bus.
