​Introducing New Compact multi-channel digitizer with open FPGA

Teledyne SP Devices today announced the release of ADQ8-8C - a flexible data acquisition board with high channel density and an open FPGA architecture that makes it ideal for large-scale physics installations and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) product integration.

The 8-channel ADQ8-8C is available in PXIe and MTCA.4 form factors and allows for compact and cost-efficient multi-channel system design. The versatile analog front-end (AFE) of ADQ8-8C supports a wide variety of detectors and can therefore be used in many applications such as particle physics, scientific instruments, time-of-flight applications, and more.


  • AFE with programmable DC-offset, input voltage range, and input impedance (50Ω and 1 MΩ)
  • 500 MHz analog input bandwidth
  • Open powerful Xilinx FPGA with resources available for customized real-time digital signal processing
  • 1 GByte on-board acquisition memory and up to 3.2 GByte/s data transfer to host PC
