VadaTech expands DAQ Series product range in MTCA.4

VadaTech announces expansion of the DAQ Series product range in MTCA.4. The DAQ523 provides 12 channels of ADC (AD9653) with 2 channels of DAC (MAX5878) coupled to Xilinx Kintex-7 XC7K410T FPGA and now has options for programmable gain and AC/DC selection, and for optical detection in the 1310 to 1650 nm range. The 12-channel optical detector option has programmable gain, bandwidth and AC/DC coupling, with typical sensitivity of 0.7W/A for input power of 0 to 160uW. It is ideal for multiple laser detection in applications such as remote monitoring, frequency stabilization and lock-in amplifiers.

VadaTech DAQ Series software framework is an open, user-customizable out-of-the-box data acquisition system based on industry standard tools, including EPICS integration and Qt user interface. It allows users to easily integrate their own acquisition and processing functionality, including low-latency feedback for laboratory and deployed systems. The DAQ Series provides full source code for the libraries, sequencer, DMA, Linux driver and GUI, allowing users to easily customize or brand to their own requirements, and can be expanded to include features such as customized DMA, coherent acquisition and trigger synchronization over multi-channel and multi-board configurations, FPGA development support package, and spectrum analyzer GUI.
