Ultraview Corp. said its PCI-bus data acquisition board provides more than 100 times the storage depth of prior A/D boards in the >1GHz range.

Capable of continuously acquiring and storing up to 8GB of 8-bit analog data at speeds up 1.25GSa/s, the AD8-1250DMA's extreme memory depth and record length enable new classes of applications, the company said. They include wideband surveillance, radar, sonar, microwave component testing and characterization, along with other applications requiring continuous recording of large amounts of analog data at very high speeds.

While the unit is acquiring data into its 8GB on-board memory, its 64-bit, 66MHz PCI DMA engine can simultaneously transfer data from this memory to the PCI host at >300MBps.

When tested in 64-bit Sun Microsystems Ultra 80, E2-50, E420/450, and SunBlade 1000/2000 systems, the AD8-1250-DMA board acquired analog waveforms continuously at 1.25GSa/s, while simultaneously performing a sustained DMA (bus-mastering) transfer to host system memory at approximately 320MBps.

A simple software interface allows users to write software for all PCI-bus Sparc platforms running Solaris 8 Unix. A Linux software package will be available during this quarter. Single-unit pricing of $12,955 includes drivers and sample C programs for Solaris 8. Pricing for the dual-board bridging package is $995. Delivery is from stock.
