Link to information on the PXIe series of signal capture cards The new PXI Express (PXIe) M4x.44xx range of modular cards offers ultra-fast analogue signal capture with A/D converters 130, 250 and 500 mega samples/sec. Available in 2 or 4 channels versions, with up to 16 bit resolution, there are six selectable gain ranges (±200 mV up to ±10 V) with AC or DC coupling. The card's mechanically robust PXIe connection interface with PCIe x4-lane Gen2 ultra high-performance technology allows transfer speeds in excess of 1.7 GB/s, making M4x range ideal for use in fast compact PXIe mainframe systems. All M4x are shipped with a comprehensive software programming suite for popular programming languages, including MATLAB and LabVIEW.

Require PC and instrumentation portability?

Rugged portable systems
Where portability is required a number of versatile systems are available:

These are ideal for mobile acquisition requirements / system designs

Software support is well developed and extensive for all Spectrum instrumentation, for both Windows® and Linux®.
  • Drivers for Visual C/C++®, Delphi®, Visual Basic™, MATLAB®, LabVIEW®, Agilent VEE® and LabWindows/CVI®
  • Example programs available
  • SBench® visualisation and analysis software is provided free of charge with all Spectrum instrumentation hardware! Pull-down menu driven, it requires no code programming to quickly access its powerful features.
  • SBench is also the basis for a FREE software educational tool kit for lecturers and students. Use this to visualise the theory of using instrumentation in signal generation, capture and analysis
