Sustaining up to 2 GS/s real-time sampling rates, National Instruments’ 500-MHz NI PXI-5153 and NI PCI-5153, and 1-GHz NI PCI-5154 digitizers store up to 256 MB of deep onboard memory per channel. The instruments use T-Clock technology for integration with other instrumentation, such as arbitrary waveform generators and digital waveform generator/analyzers. The devices can be synchronized to build systems with up to 34 channels in a single PXI chassis, all simultaneously sampling at 1 GS/s and synchronized to picosecond-level accuracy between modules. The units suit the consumer electronics, semiconductor, aerospace and defense and life sciences industries by performing in mass spectrometry, radar, signal intelligence, and non-destructive test and physics experimentation applications. Engineers can combine the digitizers with NI LabVIEW SignalExpress interactive measurement software to acquire data, perform measurements, and view and analyze data in Microsoft Excel or NI DIAdem test management software. Pricing starts at $6,999.
