Spectrum introduces 14, 16 bit multi-channel LXI digitizers

Apr. 13, 2017 – Spectrum Instrumentation has released a range of high-speed 14 and 16 bit LXI-based digitizer products for applications where multiple electronic signals need to be acquired and analyzed Spectrum.
Twelve new instruments with up to 24 fully synchronized channels extend Spectrum’s digitizerNETBOX family. The 16 bit ADC models offers sampling rates of either 130 MS/s or 250 MS/s, while the 14 bit units feature sampling rates of 500 MS/s. According to the company, the high sampling rates and resolutions make the DN6.44x series “perfect for wide-band signal capture,” noting that the high channel density makes the instruments suitable for applications where arrays of receivers, sensors, detectors, rectifiers, antennas and other electronic devices are to be used and tested. The ADCs on each channel are clocked synchronously, says Spectrum, adding that each channel is also equipped with its own front-end amplifier that features six input ranges (from ±200 mV up to ±10 V full scale), switchable input impedance (50 Ω and 1 MΩ) and programmable positive input offset for unipolar signals.
