High-precision 12-bit PCIe digitizer delivers multi-GHz real-time processing

June 24, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Agilent Technologies's U5303A is a compact dual-channel PCIe digitizer with 12-bit resolution, sampling up to 3.2 GS/s, and on-board real-time processing.

The board has a DC-to-2 GHz bandwidth, features 9.1 ENOB at 100 MHz and a 58dB signal-to-noise ratio together with very high data-transfer rates from an eight-lane PCIe 2.0 interface.

The U5303A gives users the ability to integrate advanced real-time signal processing within the embedded Xilinx Virtex-6 field-programmable gate array. This is made possible by the Agilent FPGA development kit for high-speed digitizers . This software kit provides interfaces that leverage the full density and speed of the FPGA while ensuring the digitizer’s outstanding level of performance at multi-gigasamples per second.
