    The ADQ412 is a 2/4 (Dual/Quad) channel flexible digitizer that offers an outstanding combination of high bandwidth and dynamic range, which enables demanding measurements such as RF/IF sampling of very wide band signals. The high sampling rate is enabled by SP Devices' propriertary interleaving technology ADX.

    Analog Front End (AFE)

    The AFE of ADQ412 is AC-coupled and optimized for spectral purity over a wide bandwidth. The lower cut-off frequency is as low as 10 Hz and the bandwidth is set by the mode of operation. See the product information table to the right for more information.

    Interface to the Host

    The digitizer connects to the host via a high-speed USB 2.0 cable or through an optional Compact PCI Express / PXI Express interface. All interface types allows for streaming of data at high transfer rates.

    Software Development Kit (SDK)

    The ADQ412 comes with an easy-to-use API that allows easy integration into any application. Software tools for application development include C/C++, Matlab and DLLs for Windows XP/Vista. The SDK also includes SP Devices´ data capture tool, ADCaptureLab.

    FPGA and the ADQ Development Kit

    The ADQ412 is built on the ADQ DSP computational board which employs a Xilinx Virtex 6 LX240T FPGA. The user can access the FPGA and implement customized digital signal processing by purchasing the ADQ Development Kit. This kit contains everything that is needed to get started with the FPGA development, and also includes examples and documentation. See the ADQ DSP product page for more information.

    Acquisition Functions

    Standard trigger options are external, software and level trigger. The ADQ108 supports single and multiple records. The multiple records mode can be combined with any trigger function. A time stamp function tags each record with timing information.
