Spectrum Introduces the Fastest Monolithic 12-bit A/D Converter Card in the World

Spectrum USA today announced the release of the M3i.3240, a groundbreaking tool with the power to acquire large amounts of data in record time. The next-generation product is the fastest Monolithic 12-bit A/D converter card in the world – perfect for demanding applications in the areas of high-energy physics, research and development, radar, spectroscopy and laser applications. It features an ultra-high resolution that is sixteen times higher than eight-bit digitizers and an SNR of 63 dB at 1-V range.

The M3i.32xx series for the PC is offered in four different versions ranging from 250MS/s to 500MS/s with one or two synchronous channels available in PCI/PCI-X and PCI Express versions. The configurable A/D amplifier stage consists of a 50-ohm terminated path with a bandwidth of 250MHz and a second, high-impedance path with a bandwidth greater than 125MHz. Six input ranges between 200mV and 10V can be software selected. In addition, each channel has a programmable AC/DC coupling and a selectable low pass filter to optimize noise figures.

While the default configuration is 128Msamples, a card can be equipped with up to 2GSamples of on-board memory to handle large amounts of data with ease. If using the full memory option, it is possible to acquire more than four seconds of data with 500MS/s.

The M3i.32xx is delivered with Windows 2000/XP/XP64/Vista/Vista64 and Linux 32/64 bit drivers and is already tested with Windows 7. Delivery also includes a set of programming examples and a basic version of the latest SBench 6 software, which has been optimized for handling GBytes of acquired data.

The driver supports all M3i and M2i cards to allow hardware upgrading for existing applications. A set of standard programming examples is provided to illustrate the card's main signal capture functions. Extensive support includes Visual C++, Borland C++, Gnu C++, Visual Basic, VB.Net, C#, J# and Delphi code. As an alternative, drivers for Labview, Matlab and Agilent VEE are available.
