Pentek Inc. has announced the Model 6802 ADC 6U VME board that includes an on-board programmable gain instrumentation amplifier, AAF, and 32-channel of ADCfour times the number of channels of other VME solutions.

The board also features an FPDP (front-panel-data-port) output interface that supports a variety of COTS FPDP peripherals from Pentek and other manufacturers, including DACs, digital receivers, and memory boards, as well as Motorola G4 PowerPC and TI's C6000 processor boards.

The Model 6802 offers 32 channels of delta sigma ADC with precise, linear-phase low pass filtering. Each ADC features 24 bits of resolution at sampling rates ranging from 1kHz to 216kHz. Data tagging is also available to correlate the channel number and the sampled data.

A front-panel sync input signal allows the synchronization of multiple 6802 boards. Up to eight 6802 boards, for a maximum of 256 channels, can be combined over a single FPDP cable to support a range of system configurations.

"By doubling the sampling rate to over 200kHz while maintaining excellent channel-to-channel phase matching and 24-bit resolution, the 6802 helps our customers tackle new wideband sonar, vibration analysis, and ultrasonic applications," said Rodger Hosking of Pentek.

"With its built-in programmable gain instrumentation amplifiers, this new 32-channel converter eliminates the need for a separate amplifier or daughter board," he added.

The Model 6802 is priced starting at $7,995.
