If your application requires more than 2 channels for data acquisition, you can synchronize multiple digitizers to allow truly synchronous sampling using a Leader/Follower SyncBoard 850. SyncBoard 850 is a mezzanine board that connects to the Leader/Follower connector along the top edge of the ATS850 and sits parallel to the motherboard.
SyncBoard 850 4x allows a 2-, 3-, or 4-board Leader/Follower system for up to 8 channels of data acquisition.
SyncBoard 850 features controlled impedance, and equal length traces to deliver clock, trigger, and initialization signals to each ATS850 in the system.
Complete synchronization between Leader board and all Follower boards
The Leader board's clock and trigger signals are copied by the SyncBoard 850 and supplied to all the Follower boards. This guarantees complete synchronization between the Leader board and all Follower boards. SyncBoard 850 allows the use of variable frequency clocks in Leader/Follower configuration. A Leader/Follower system samples all inputs simultaneously and also triggers simultaneously on the same clock edge.
For optimal trigger accuracy, only the Leader board is allowed to trigger the acquisition system.
