Adlink Technology has developed the PXI-9816, PXI-9826 and PXI-9846 high-resolution 16bit PXI digitizers offering sampling rates of 10-, 20- and 40MSps, respectively. The combination of high resolution and sampling rate enables monitoring of high-speed transient signals while maintaining very high accuracy. Furthermore, each digitizer of the PXI-98x6 series supports up to 512Mbyte of onboard memory sustain the continuous transfer of data between the digitizer and the system for an increased acquisition time.

The PXI-98x6 series also utilizes the PXI trigger bus to synchronize multiple modules without external routing or cabling. "Adlink's PXI-98x6 series provides a very cost-effective solution for high-channel count simultaneous sampling systems for use in applications such as ultrasonic imaging, non-destructive testing and automatic electronic testing," said Catherine Wu, senior product director for the measurement and automation division at Adlink.

The analog front-end of the PXI-98x6 series has been designed to offer greater DC accuracy and higher dynamic performance over similar cards currently available on the market. For example, the SNR of the 16bit, 10MSps PXI-9816 can be up to 78dB and its effective number of bits is 12.6 with a 1MHz sine wave input signal at -1dBFS amplitude.

Adlink provides drivers for development in Microsoft C++ and Visual Basic environments. The PXI-98x6 series is also supported by Adlink's DAQPilot 2 task-oriented driver which not only quickens development time, but also provides Express VIs and Polymorphic VIs for use in LabVIEW.
