WDM 5044 waveform digitizer

Guzik Technical Enterprises has made available its new WDM 5044 waveform digitizer, which provides up to 6GHz waveform capture and analysis bandwidth in a display-less rack-mounted format. This digitizer addresses demanding ATE and OEM applications in avionics, military electronics, physics, astronomy, semiconductors and other disciplines.

The product features up to 2Gpoint waveform memory on each channel combined with customizable hardware parametric processing. The WDM 5044 provides 4GHz bandwidth in 4 channel mode and 6GHz bandwidth in 2 channel mode. To facilitate the fastest possible waveform transfer back to the host computer, the WDM 5044 uses a high-speed PCI Express cabled interface.

Customers can work with Guzik to develop custom measurement algorithms specific to their application and have them built directly into to the WDM 5044's FPGA-based processing engine, increasing throughput and offloading complex waveform processing tasks from the host processor to the instrument's digital processor.

"Current modular and rack-mount digitizers aimed at data acquisition in systems typically offer significantly lower performance, and oscilloscopes used in these applications are expensive and provide un-used functionality," said Nahum Guzik, the company's founder and CEO. "The WDM 5000 Series was designed to provide high performance waveform acquisition with a small footprint at a low cost relative to alternative approaches."

The WDM 5044 sells for $69,000 and is available for shipment immediately. It is the first member of a new family of high-performance modular instruments from Guzik. It includes the WDM 5000 Signal Explorer software utility, providing control, display and waveform export capability. In addition, Matlab drivers are provided.
