Strategic Test releases 4-channel 100 MS/s 8-bit A/D oscilloscope card for PCI Express that can record 2 channels at 200 MS/s

Strategic Test Corp has announced the UF2e-2031 oscilloscope PCI Express card. The UF2e-2031 has four 100 MS/s 8-bit ADC's that are also able to operate in an interpolated mode to acquire two channels at 200 MS/s for increased versatility. Drivers for Microsoft Windows Vista, XP64, XP and Linux (RedHat, Fedora, SuSe, Sarge) are supplied with the card, as well as the SBench 5.3 oscilloscope program.

Key specifications include: 64 MSamples memory --- expandable to 4 GSamples; continuous streaming to host PC > 120 MSamples/s; Effective Number of Bits > 7.2 LSB; Signal-to-Noise Ratio > 44.5 dB; Total Harmonic Distortion < -49.5 dB, and -3dB bandwidth > 90 MHz.

The UF2e-2031 oscilloscope card is best suited for applications that require cost-effective high-speed data acquisition and deep memory. Applications typically include RADAR, ultrasonics and communications.
The UF2e-2031 offers a wide range of triggering possibilities, including level, window, pulse-width, re-arm and double triggers, or with an external TTL trigger input. Trigger conditions can be set on multiple cards or systems combined with AND/OR logic, a feature often used in production test.

Like all UltraFast boards, the UF2e-2031 scope card can be customized through hardware options to best match the application:
'        Onboard memory: 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 or 2048 MegaSamples
'        Multiple Recording: memory segmentation
'        Gated Sampling: output clock controlled by external TTL signal
'        TimeBase : records time of trigger events or Gates
'        ABA Mode: slow-fast-slow recording on trigger
'        Star Hub: synchronization of up to 5 or 16 boards, or 5 to 16 PC's to a maximum or 271 boards. Can be used with Digitizer, AWG and Digital I/O boards to create mixed-mode systems
BaseXIO : adds 8 asynchronous digital I/O lines

Strategic Test provides the industry's most comprehensive software support with the following Software Development Kits available:
Windows Vista and XP64, XP, 2000, NT and 98
