Keywords:HDTV signal generation? AWG PCIe card?

Strategic Test has released the UF2e-6110 two-channel 125MSps 8bit arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) PCIe card.

With synchronous multichannel capability, the AWG card is well suited for creating complex waveforms in applications that include I&Q signal generation, radar system development, communications testing, laser positioning and HDTV signal generation.

Each channel has its own 8bit DAC to ensure synchronous output and a choice of three reconstruction filters (5th and 4th order Butterworth lowpass) giving bandwidths of 25MHz, 5MHz or 500kHz. A no-filter option is also software-selectable.

Typical dynamic specifications include SNR of better than 60.9dB, total harmonic distortion (THD) under 69.1dB and spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) above 71.9dB.

The board is supplied with 64MSamples of signal memory as standard, but can be expanded to 4GSamples through a proprietary onboard DIMM module.

Like other UltraFast AWG boards, signals can be downloaded to on-board memory, output one time, or continuously until stopped, or continuously streamed gap-free from the host PC RAM or hard disks.

The following options are available allowing the user to customize the instrument:

? Onboard memory: 64-, 128-, 256-, 512-, 1,024-, 2,048 or 4,096MSamples

? Multiple replay (memory segmentation)

? Gated replay (output clock controlled by external TTL signal)

? Star hub (synchronization of up to 5 or 16 boards, or 5 to 16 PC's. Can be used with digitizer and digital I/O boards to create mixed mode systems)

? BaseXIO (adds 8 asynchronous digital I/O lines)

? Amplifier board (increases output range from 3V to 10V)

Strategic Test also provides the industry's most comprehensive software support with the following Software Development Kit's available for Windows (Vista and XP64, XP, 2000, NT and 98), Linux drivers (RedHat, Suse, Fedora and Debian), Matlab, LabVIEW, Agilent-VEE, LabWindows/CVI and DASYLab .

Prices start at $4,790. All UltraFast boards are supplied with the free-of-charge SBench software that allows users to generate and output waveforms without programming. SBench is available for both Windows and Linux.
