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.

Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. Steve Wilson, Citrix Vice President of Cloud,...
When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different. Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains. It's devel...
