High processing power, high channel density, and a low system cost-per-channel.
An FPGA-based table top DAQ solution incorporating up to 32 channels at 125 MSPS on a Virtex-6 FPGA.
The PicoDigitizer 125-Series presents developers with a large Virtex-6 FPGA which can optionally be used in conjunction with an embedded Quad Core i7.
16 or 32 phase coherent channels of high speed data, sampled at 125 MSPS with 14 bit resolution, are captured and processed in this small table top platform...yielding a solution that offers high processing power, high channel density, and a low system cost-per-channel.
To reduce overall system development time, designers can choose to use a model-based design approach (via Simulink) which enables real-time and hardware-in-the-loop co-simulation with the FPGA. Alternatively, a VHDL-based FPGA framework is also available.
Built for intensive processing requirements...with optional FPGA-CPU mixed architecture
The large onboard Virtex-6 FPGA of the PicoDigitizer 125-Series can be used for demanding processing requirements such as:
- Up-conversion, down-conversion
- Space-time coding
For those looking to balance power, speed, and performance, a Quad Core i7 can be embedded into the PicoDigitizer 125-Series.
Shortened development time with fewer hardware cycles
A model-based design environment (MATLAB Simulink & Xilinx System Generator) means rapid transitions from algorithm design to hardware-in-the-loop testing. The net result is a development cycle that can be reduced by weeks or months.
Add to this the ability to automatically generate HDL code from the development environment and you have another significant source of reducing the time taken to develop your scientific or medical imaging applications.
Includes Recording IP core
Data exchange with the embedded or external CPU is enabled via either a GigE or PCIe interface, while data can be recorded using Nutaq’s multichannel Record & Playback IP core.
Begin your "value add" development right away
The PicoDigitizer 125-Series ships with a software suite that contains all of the necessary IP cores, IO interfaces, and stand alone APIs need to enable immediate development of applications on the hardware.
High channel density means lower system costs...and a small footprint
Select either 16 or 32 phase coherent channels sampling at 125 MSPS. Our double-stack FMC technology not only saves you money, but also allows for a reduced footprint in our table top digitizer solution.
