ATS9360: External Clock Upgrade
This optional upgrade allows ATS9360 to perform analog to digital conversion based on an external clock signal. It provides an SMA input for an external clock signal, which can be a sine wave or square wave signal. Two software selectable modes of external clocking are supported: user supplies a 10 MHz reference clock and the on-board VCO locks to it; or Fast External Clock whereby ATS9360 takes one sample for each cycle of the user-supplied clock. Fast External clock frequency must remain in the specified range of 300 MHz to 1.8 GHz.
For customers whose external clocks may go lower than 300 MHz during the acquisition, it is possible to have AlazarTech screen the ATS9360 boards for external clock operation down to 75 MHz by ordering:
