A/D Converter Board ADO-1616-STD

It is an A/D converter with 4 channels of resolution 160 bits and sampling 160 Msps.
It is a standalone type product that can be used away from the PC that analyzes the sampling part.
The captured analog data is transferred to the analysis PC using high-speed optical communication "GiGA CHANNEL".
On the PC side, high-speed optical communication board APX-761F for data acquisition is mounted. A single APX-761F can acquire data from up to 8 ADO-1616-STD.

・Up to 160Msps sampling
・Sampling Rate: 160MHz to 20MHz
・4ch synchronous sampling
・High analog function with SNR-71.2dB/SFDR-80.5dB
・Equipped with 2GByte(DDR3-SODIMM) on the memory
・Enable to mounting user algorithm on the FPGA
・Temperature monitoring function
・External Clock: 1ch, External trigger: 2ch
・Standalone type can be set away from analysis PC
・6.25Gbps high-speed data transfer using optical communication GiGA CHANNEL
・Data acquisition from up to 8 ADO-1616 by equipping APX-761F on analysis PC
・Up to 150m internodal distance between ADO-1616-STD and ADP-761F
