Strategic Test Corp. has unveiled two new 500 kS/s 16-bit data acquisition cards for PCI Express. The UF2e-4731 has 16 analogue inputs and the UF2e-4730 has 8 inputs. Strategic Test says the products' features include the options for dual-timebase sampling, synchronous digital inputs, asynchronous digital I/O and the ability to synchronise hundreds of channels.

Drivers and programming examples for Microsoft Windows Vista, XP64, XP and Linux (RedHat, Fedora, SuSe, Sarge) are supplied with the card, as well as the SBench 5.3 oscilloscope program. SDK's for MATLAB, LabVIEW, Agilent-VEE, DASYLab and LabWindows/CVI are available as options.

"Strategic Test now offers a wide range of high-resolution data acquisition cards for PCI Express, with a large selection of acquisition speeds and channel widths," commented Bob Giblett, President of Strategic Test. "This insures that our customers are able to select a card that closely matches their requirements."

Key specifications include:

- 128 mega samples of memory—- expandable to 2 giga samples

- Continuous streaming to host PC > 120 mega samples/s

- Effective number of bits > 14.4 bits

- Signal-to-noise ratio > 88.7 dB

- Total harmonic distortion < -92.5 dB

- The standard -3dB bandwidth is > 250kHz

Each channel its own 500kHz ADC for true simultaneous sampling, together with eight voltage ranges from ±50 mV to ±10 V, a programmable offset of 100% and input impedances of 50 Ohm or 1 MOhm, allowing each channel to be individually configured for the signal source.
