The ADQ1600TD is a world-leading 14 bit digitizer optimized for time-domain pulse capture. With its unique 1600 MSPS capture rate, enabled by SP Devices’ ADC interleaving technology ADX, the ADQ1600TD opens for demanding measurements such as time-domain pulse capture and high-speed data recording.

The AFE of the ADQ1600TD is AC-coupled and optimized for low background noise over a large bandwidth. The adjustable bias together with the Digital Baseline Stabilization (DBS) technology increases the dynamic range for unipolar pulses.

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.​
