High-Speed PCI Arbitrary Waveform Generator
GaGe, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance PCI Express/PCI digitizer and oscilloscope cards, today announced the release of its new CompuGen CG4800 PCI Express arbitrary waveform generator.
The CG4800 is an exceptionally high-speed, 14-bit, four-channel digital-to-analog conversion (DAC) board that may be used as an arbitrary waveform generator, a stimulus device, or for generating multiple communication frequency bands. Each DAC can generate four simultaneous waveforms at a maximum clocking rate of 1200 MS/s, which allows for up to 600 MHz of bandwidth for each output signal. Output waveforms may be “single shot” or “continuously looped” from the 512 MS of on-board memory.
“With the addition of the CG4800, GaGe’s family of CompuGen arbitrary waveform generators enables users to generate a limitless number of analog and digital signals,” said Patrick Cassady, Executive Vice President of DynamicSignals LLC. “The high-speed and very high on-board memory of the CG4800 make it ideal for the generation of extremely long waveforms in applications such as radar, video, communications, ultrasound and automated testing,” Cassady added.
The CG4800 also integrates with GaGe’s CompuScope digitizer cards to create a CompuGen/CompuScope system that can be configured into a stimulus/response instrument. In addition, for applications that require the generation of multiple high-speed signals up to four CG4800 boards can be interconnected to provide up to 16 synchronized channels in a system.
Free software for creating, editing, and generating waveforms as well as software development kits for C/C++, MATLAB, and LabVIEW is included. For more information regarding the CG4800 or GaGe’s family of CompuGen products, please visit:
