32-channel DAQ card

ICS Sensor Processing, a part of Radstone Embedded Computing, has announced the ICS-645B 32-channel high-speed data acquisition card. The company said the new device, a part of the ICS-645 family, takes full advantage of the higher throughput capabilities of PCI 2.2 with its 64bit, 66MHz interface, delivering four times the PCI bandwidth capacity, while its FPDP II interface delivers 2.5 times (400MBps) the throughput of previous family members.

With 32 single-ended input channels, simultaneously sampled (even in multi-card systems) by high-speed oversampling ADCs (Analog Devices AD9260) at sample rates up to 20MSps and a programmable clock source, ICS Sensor Processing said its DAQ card has been designed to provide effective, streamlined functionality in a single full length PCI card.

According the company, the new device addresses the challenge of moving data back to the host processor or recorder by providing two high bandwidth data paths: the 64/66 PCI interface, which provides sustained aggregate data rates in excess of 300MBps, and the FPDP II port, which provides a dedicated connection to collect data from multiple cards. 16MBytes of onboard storage is provided, allowing the device to tolerate unpredictable interrupt latencies encountered in non-realtime operating systems.

"The ICS-645 product line has led the market for high-speed acoustic ADC boards since it was introduced," said Scott Hames, director of product management at ICS. "The announcement of the ICS-645B brings leading-edge performance to acoustic A/D applications while remaining highly affordable."

The ICS-645B is already available.
