The ADQ1600RF (formerly named ADQ1600) is a world-leading 14 bit digitizer. With its unique 1600 MSPS capture rate, enabled by SP Devices’ ADC interleaving technology ADX, the ADQ1600RF opens for demanding measurements such as RF/IF sampling, high resolution ultra sound imaging and high-speed data recording. 

The AFE of the ADQ1600RF is AC-coupled and optimized for spectral purity over a large bandwidth. The analog -3dB bandwidth is 750 MHz.

The digitizer connects to the host via a high-speed USB 3.0 cable for easy to use standalone operation. PXI Express or MTCA.4 µTCA interface is available for systems integration as a modular instrument. A PCIe version for integration into a PC is also available. All interface types allows for streaming of data at high transfer rates.
