​​ADQ214-DCLN - New digitizer optimized for low noise

In this issue you can read about our new digitizer ADQ214-DCLN which is optimized for low noise measurements. We are also updating our warranty terms from 1 to 3 years!

ADQ214-DCLN is a dual-channel, 14-bit, 400 MS/s digitizer optimized for excellent noise performance. It features a low-noise DC-coupled analog front-end with high dynamic range and the on-board real-time decimation effectively increases the resolution of the digitizer and allows for detailed and highly accurate study of lower frequency signals without the need of capturing massive amounts of data.

The ADQ214-DCLN is designed particularly for measurements of low-level noise in the frequency range from very low frequencies, below 0.1 Hz, up to 100 MHz. This is enabled by the low noise DC-coupled front-end which has exemplary noise performance both in terms of 1/f noise and wideband noise. The ADQ214-DCLN is essentially free of spurious distortion making it the ideal digitizer for high-performance testing.

ADQ214-DCLN is available in USB and PXI Express form factors and occupies a single slot in an 3U cPCIe/PXIe chassis. The module can either be used with chassis and controllers from major vendors or with custom backplanes provided through SP Devices' design services.

A software development kit (SDK) is included free of charge with the digitizer and can be used both under Windows and Linux. The on-board Xilinx FPGA is available to the end user through the optional ADQ Development Kit .

This product is ideal for phase noise measurement in lab environments as well as automated test equipment but also for other types of wideband analysis of weak signals such as for example power supply line analysis. The plot below shows the unprecedented idle channel noise level of the ADQ214-DCLN. Please do not hesitate contacting us if you have questions.
