NATIONAL Instruments has extended its simultaneous sampling multifunction I/O family with the introduction of its highest bandwidth PCI data acquisition (DAQ) device.
The 12-bit NI PCI-6115 simultaneous sampling multifunction I/O device delivers digital, analog, and mixed signal capabilities for high-frequency DAQ applications.
These capabilities make it a suitable alternative to stand-alone instruments for many applications that require flexible channel counts and synchronisation.
The NI PCI-6115 device features simultaneous analog input and output, two on-board memory options, and samples at a maximum of 10MS/s on each of four input channels.
The device also features two 12-bit output channels capable of 4MS/s, eight digital I/O lines, two 24-bit counter/timers, and an RTSI bus for board synchronisation.
With this high-speed device, engineers can record higher bandwidth signals, including signals from mobile telephony, radar, sonar, and ultrasonic systems.
The input bandwidth of the device is 5MHz and provides software-selectable filters at 50 and 500kHz for anti-alias protection.
The NI PCI-6115 device is capable of correlated high-speed operations that combine analog input, analog output, timed digital I/O, and counter/timer functions.
The device comes with NI-DAQ 6.9 driver software, a programming interface for use with numerous programming environments and languages. Through NI-DAQ 6.9, the NI PCI-6115 device integrates with NI's application development environments, including LabVIEW and Measurement Studio for Visual Basic and C++ users.
With this release, the NI 6115 simultaneous sampling multifunction I/O family now offers both 16Ms and 32Ms on-board memory options for PCI and PXI/CompactPCI. National Instruments 03 9879 5166.
