Features Include:

  • Additional resolutions – 0.125Ω, 0.25 Ω, 0.5Ω, 1Ω, 2Ω, 4Ω and 8Ω – extending the resistance range to 85.3MΩ on a single 6-channel module
  • Twice the resistance setting accuracy at +/-0.1% +/-resolution (was +/-0.2% +/-resolution)
  • Twice the maximum operating voltage at 200V
  • Can be set as short or open circuit to simulate a wiring or sensor fault
  • Up to 18 channels can fit into a single-slot module

04.04.2022 New SSD Storage Solutions for High Speed Recording

New SSD Storage Solutions for High Speed Recording
ADQDSU and FWDSU support peer-to-peer streaming at 6.8 GB/s

Today we introduce the ADQDSU – a second-generation solid-state drive (SSD) storage intended for high-speed recording in applications such as radar, lidar, and more. It supports direct data transfer between the digitizer and the storage device via the backplane by utilizing peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming. The main advantage of P2P relative to conventional methods is that it significantly reduces the CPU and DRAM workload on the PXIe controller.

ADQDSU and the associated FWDSU firmware can stream data to multiple disks simultaneously in order to increase the throughput. It also supports seamless handover between disks to ensure uninterrupted continuous recording of large amounts of data.

Selected Features Include:

  • 8 TB or 32 TB total storage per slot in PXIe format
  • 6.8 GB/s write speed
  • Peer-to-peer streaming helps reduce PXIe controller CPU/DRAM workload
