New low-cost 12 bit, 50 MS/s PCI Express waveform digitizer


Montreal, Canada (Jan 30, 2019) AlazarTech, a manufacturer of high-performance, low-cost PC Based Instruments, today announced the release of AlazarTech ATS®9130, a dual-channel 50 MS/s, 12 bit waveform digitizer based on the single-lane Gen1 PCI Express bus.

ATS9130 features two simultaneous analog input channels that can each be sampled at rates up to 50 MS/s with 12 bit vertical resolution. Each channel has 25 MHz of full power analog input bandwidth and up to 8 Megasamples of on-board acquisition memory buffer. With software selectable attenuation, users can achieve an input voltage range of ±40 mV to ±20 V.

ATS9130 is a continuation of our effort to provide cost-effective yet powerful products to OEMs.”, stated Muneeb Khalid, President of AlazarTech. “ATS9130 provides data streaming, a feature that is usually absent in products in this price range”.

The unit occupies only one half-length PCI Express slot, making it very easy to integrate it into a customer’s system.

OEMs can integrate the ATS9130 PCI Express digitizers into their own systems very easily using the Windows® and Linux® compatible ATS-SDK Software Development Kit. This SDK includes sample programs written in C/C++, Python, MATLAB®, and LabVIEW®.

ATS9130 PCI Express digitizers are also compatible with ATS-GPU and ATS-GMA software libraries developed by AlazarTech that allow users to do real-time data transfer from ATS9130 to a GPU card at full bus speed and digital signal processing.

Applications for ATS9130 are:

  • • Scanning applications that involve acquisition of data with a rapidly occurring trigger (ultrasonics, radar, spectrometry, …)
  • Acquisition of data with a randomly occurring trigger (lightning test, acoustic emissions, …)
