Index
Agilent Digitizers lead the market in performance and breadth of offering
High-Speed Digitizers provide a range of 500 MS/s, 1 GS/s, 2 GS/s, 4 GS/s and 8 GS/s
high-speed digitizer cards with 8-, 10- and 12-bit resolution, wide bandwidths and large
acquisition memories. These products, in PCI, PXI, cPCI, and VME formats, are used in research,
ATE and OEM applications in industries as wide spread as Biotechnology, Semiconductors,
Aerospace, Physics, and Astronomy. Configured together into a data acquisition system,
the high-speed digitizers deliver essential multichannel oscilloscope capabilities in a compact
modular package, providing a wide range of functionalities that can not be matched by monolithic
instruments. The whole system includes a fast PC connection and all the necessary software for
a simple integration into any automated test system.
High Resolution Digitizers provide mid-range sample rates that compliment instruments in test
systems such as DMMs, function generators, switch systems and counters. The digitizers
provide high resolution for accurate waveform acquisition and on-board measurements in a new
stand-alone LXI format. These digitizers are used in Automotive, Aerospace/Defense, Medical and
Electronic Test applications.
U2500A Series USB Simultaneous Sampling Multifunction Data Acquisition gives you the
choice and flexibility to create standalone or modular solutions that expand and evolve
according to your test requirement needs. These modules provide from 250 kS/s up to 2 MS/s with
additional Analog Output and Digital IO functionality that is simple enough for academic
application and yet robust and versatile enough for use in applications in Medical, Consumer
Electronics, Electronic Test, Construction, and Automotive industries.

Precision time base
Each digitizer has a precision crystal-controlled time
base. Sample rates can be selected, in a 1, 2, 2.5, 5
sequence, from 100 S/s to 2 GS/s plus 4 GS/s and 8
GS/s. An internal trigger time interpolator (TTI) with
high timing resolution is used to assist with trigger
time measurements and positioning with respect to the
internal clock (sampling time). The sampling clock can
also be generated externally, using the dedicated MMCX
CLK IN connector, for applications where the sample rate
must be synchronized with the signal to be acquired.
The digitizers feature a sequence acquisition mode that
allows the capture and storage of consecutive “single”
waveforms. In sequence acquisition mode the acquisition
memory is divided into segments. Waveforms are stored
in successive memory segments as they arrive.
The memory can be divided into any number of segments
between 2 and 1000 (up to 16000 segments with the 128
M memory option, and 125000 segments with 1G memory
option). Sequence acquisition mode is extremely useful
in almost all impulse-response type applications such as
radar, sonar, lidar, time-of-flight, ultrasonics, medical and
biomedical research.

Unique Tools for Complex Frequency Analysis
Agilent Acqiris high-speed PCI digitizers (U1070A) set the standard in high-resolution data acquisition. Using the latest technology, the digitizers provide fast
sample rates of up to 420 MS/s and wide bandwidths of up to 300 MHz. The digitizers feature long 4 MSample acquisition memory. Waveforms are transferred
directly into the digitizers’ large acquisition memory so that complex signals can be stored over long time periods. Large memory is essential for maintaining
fast sampling rates and timing resolution.
The sample rate selection and bandwidth combine to allow the high-resolution capture of signals with a high spurious free dynamic range (typ. 80 dB into the
HF input and 75 dB otherwise) and a high signal-to-noise ratio (typ. 65 dB into the HF input, 62 dB otherwise). Additional outstanding specifications include
typ. total harmonic distortion (THD) of -78 dB, very low noise floor spectrum at -90 dB and effective bits (ENOB) of more than 10.
Such specifications make the U1070A digitizers a perfect match for test and measurement applications in automotive, ultrasound, medical imaging, lidar, NDT,
and high-accuracy analytical instruments. The HF input of the DP310 is ideal for wireless communication equipment testing, general QAM or RF/IF digital
receivers, and radar wideband communication and analysis (SIGINT) applications.

The U1080A is a dual-channel 8-bit CompactPCI®/PXITM digitizer with on-board real-time data processing
and fast front-panel data output. The platforms are designed to cover requirements encountered in radar,
astronomy and, with fiber-optic output, similar mass storage-related applications. These data converters
are particularly suited when direct sampling techniques are used and when signals must be sampled with
high rates of up to 2 GS/s and an analog bandwidth of up to 1 GHz.
• Fiber optic data output
The modules provide on-board high-performance data processing by means of a very large FPGA. Raw
or processed data can be transferred through front-panel optical transceivers at rates of up to 30 Gbps.
The on-board FPGA allows the platforms to be easily reconfigured to perform user defined on-board
real-time signal processing on the digitized signal.

The front end design eliminates many customers’ needs for signal
conditioning and attenuation that they are currently using with their
digitizers. The LXI digitizers have Gigabit LAN for fast data transfers
and on-board measurements. The on-board
measurements are useful especially in manufacturing applications
where measurement results are needed. Transferring the results
eliminates the need for post processing and storing large sets of data,
saving both time and money.

L4532A 20 MS/s 16-bit High Resolution LXI Digitizer
The Agilent L4532A and L4534A 20 MSa/s LXI digitizers
offer 2 or 4 input channels in a stand-alone LXI format unlike the typical
VXI, PXI and PCI digitizers available today. The digitizers have high
performance front ends with isolated inputs and the ability to float
up to 40V to accommodate differential signals. The voltage input is
±250mV up to ±250V. A real benefit when analyzing high voltage and
transient signals as seen in many automotive and aerospace defense
applications.
Save test time and money with high performance analog inputs
The digitizer’s individually isolated channel inputs have been designed
for high performance with an A/D converter per channel to ensure the
signals you measure are accurately digitized without distortion or additional noise. Channel input range is configurable from ±250 mV up to
±250 V with a floating voltage up to ±40 V to accommodate differential
waveform acquisition. You can also choose to enable 2 MHz and 200
KHz input filters to your digitizer. The high voltage input, isolated inputs
and selection of noise filters reduces the need to add expensive input
signal attenuation and signal conditioning circuitry, saving test
development time and money.

Connect to the digitizers’ graphical web interface either by direct LAN or through the internet with
your PC’s Java-enabled web browser (i.e. Internet Explorer). Enter the IP address displayed on the
front of the digitizer into the web browser address and you will be able to configure, acquire and
display waveforms and measurements without programming. The web interface simultaneously
displays the channel signals and measurements and provides an instrument command log that is
very useful during development or debug.
Minimize post processing with onboard measurements
The L4532A and L4534A digitizers include a collection of on-board
“scope-like” measurements such as Vmin/Vmax, Vp-p, frequency, rise/fall time, and more that
can be applied to a selected portion or the overall waveform. There is no need for post processing
data to get the measurement results you need, saving time and minimizing the need to transfer and
store large amounts of data. The waveform measurements are made within a user selected region
of the digitized waveform and include their time position.
