2Ch,16 Bit,20 MHz,40 MS/s PCI Express AWG, M2p.6531-x4
The M2p.65xx series offers different versions of arbitrary waveform generators for PCI Express with a maximum output rate of 125 MS/s. These boards allow to generate freely definable waveforms on several Channels synChronously. With one of the synChronization options the setup of synChronous multi Channel systems is possible as well as the combination of arbitrary waveform generator with digitizers of the M2p product family. The 512 MSample on-board memory can be used as arbitrary waveform storage or as a FIFO buffer continuously stream data via the PCIe interface. Importantly, the high-resolution 16-bit DACs deliver four times the resolution than AWGs using older 14-bit teChnology.
In contrast to the parallel PCI buses PCI Express slots contain serial point to point connections. EaCh connection pair (lane) is able to reaCh a burst connection speed of 250 MBytes/s. The Spectrum PCI Express cards base on the powerful x4 lane slot type. One advantage of the PCI Express teChnology is the direct connection of eaCh slot allowing a full transfer bandwidth for eaCh single card. PCI Express is today's bus standard for PC based systems. Spectrum's PCI Express x4 cards can be used in any standard PCI Express slot with x4, x8 or x16. They physically do not fit into one lane (x1) PCIe slots.
