A new PCIe data acquisition board, the AD12-2000x2 from Ultraview, allows uninterrupted acquisition of two concurrent 2 GSPS, 12-bit A/D channels or a single channel at up to 4 GSPS. A unique combination of proprietary low-noise, low-distortion DC-2 GHz front end, 40 ns trigger latency, deep 8 GB on-board memory, and ability to be driven from either a fixed internal clock or an external clock, enables new capabilities in communications spectroscopy, SIGINT, surveillance, missile testing, RADAR and other defense, scientific and medical applications. The device acquires data at an aggregate rate up to 8 GB/sec, optionally processes it in the on-board Virtex FPGA, buffers it in the 8 GB on-board RAM, and continuously streams the data via 1.4 GB/sec PCIe x8 DMA transfers to host system RAM. Along with its fixed 1 GSPS (2 GSPS on a single channel) internal clock, the board also supports external clocks of 300 to 2,000 MHz. Available from stock, pricing for 1-4 boards of the AD12-2000x2-8GB-8GB-50T ADC is $15,995 and $14,995 for the 1.8/3.6 GSPS version, AD12-1800x2-8GB-50T.
