WITH 14 BITS, 105 MS/s ON 2
is thrilled to announce
the release of a new 14-
bit, 105 MS/s digitizer
for the PCI platform.
The new CompuScope
14105 comes from a
long tradition of signal
capture cards and constitutes an evolutionary step in the
PC-based digitizer technology that Gage has developed
since the late 80s.
“The CompuScope 14105 was designed primarily to
solve an important communications test application.
Unlike other specialized digitizer modules, this card
remains flexible enough to go way beyond I&Q and power
spectrum testing,” indicated Andrew Dawson, Ph.D.,
Worldwide Sales Manager at Gage Applied Technologies.
“This card has a large FPGA that we will soon open to our
customers for programming and a new memory
architecture and technology that allows us to reduce the
The card, nicknamed the Comm Analyzer, provides
two simultaneous input channels, 14 bits of vertical
resolution, 105 MS/s simultaneous sampling rate, over
250 MHz of bandwidth, time-stamping, external triggering
and external clocking, as well as trigger and clock output
signals for maximum ease of synchronization with other
system modules. The single input range of 0.5 V RMS is
coupled to a transformer with 50 Ω of impedance,
satisfying a key wireless communications test
requirement. Accuracy is typically ±0.5% of full-scale
input with excellent linearity. The card comes standard
with 16 MS of memory, making eight MS available to each
of the two channels. The CS14105 can also be equipped
with up to 1 GS of total onboard memory and can use
32-bit, 66 MHz PCI standards to transfer data at 200 MB/s.
NUTS & VOLTS
Completely programming-free operation of the
CompuScope 14105 is possible with the world-renowned
GageScope® oscilloscope software, allowing the user to
easily set up the digitizer and acquire, view, archive, and
analyze signals. Gage also offers Software Development
Kits (SDKs) for C/C++, MATLAB®, and, of course, the
very popular LabVIEW® environment, with support for
Windows NT, 2000, and XP.
The CompuScope 14105 is available immediately
with a projected lead-time of six weeks ARO for small
quantity orders. List price for the CompuScope 14105
starts at US $5,995.00 for the base memory model (eight
MS per channel, 16 MS total onboard). Volume-based
discounts are available to qualified OEMs.
