A family of waveform digitizer cards for the CompactPCI bus provides the fastest available rates for 8-, 14-, and 16-bit sampling resolution. All of the devices feature a 6U form factor for CompactPCI. The CompuScope 85GC features a 5-Gsample/s rate and 500-MHz bandwidth on two simultaneous channels. As the highest-resolution digitizer in the family, the CompuScope 1610C features 16-bit vertical resolution. This card offers a 10-Msample/s rate for two simultaneous channels. A 14-bit digitizer with a rate of 100 Msamples/s will be available this spring.
All members of this family are fully compatible with GageScope oscilloscope software. Users can acquire and analyze signals using CompuScope cards without having to write a single line of programming code. Software development kits are offered for C/C++, MATLAB, and LabVIEW with support for Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT/2000/XP. The CompuScope 85GC and CompuScope 1610C cost $4995 each. The 14-bit CompuScope PCI digitizer will be available soon.
