The M4x.66xx PXI Express (PXIe) x4 family

The M4X.66xx-x4 series arbitrary waveform digitizers deliver the highest performance in both speed and resolution. The series includes PXIe cards with either one, two or four synchronous channels. The large onboard memory can be segmented to replay different waveform sequences.

The AWG features a PXI Express x4 Gen 2 interface that offers outstanding data streaming performance. The interface and Spectrum’s optimized drivers enable data transfer rates in excess of 1.4 GB/s so that
signals can continuously replayed at a high output rate.

While the cards have been designed using the latest technology they are still software compatible with the drivers from earlier Spectrum digitizers. So, existing customers can use the same software they developed for a 10 year old 20 MS/s AWG card and for an M4i series 1.25 GS/s AWG.
