Description :

Tthe M9703A is an 8-channel, 12-bit wideband digital receiver/digitiser, able to capture signals from DC up to 2 GHz at 1.6GS/s. A channel interleaving capability allows waveform acquisition at up to 3.2 GS/s with exceptional measurement accuracy. The M9703A also provides real-time data processing with four Virtex 6 FPGAs and very long acquisition capability with up to 16 GBytes internal memory. The M9703A FPGAs optionally feature real-time digital downconversion (DDC), allowing tuning and zooming on the signals to be analysed. The DDCs improve the dynamic range, reduces the noise floor, and extends the capture time for an accelerated measurement speed. This feature also enables an accelerated connection to the software measurement layer, such as the 89600 Vector Signal Analysis, for faster signal analysis. The multi-module processing synchronisation allows building a system of 40 phase-coherent channels acquiring at 1.6 GS/s in only 4U of rack-mount space with the M9505A 5-slot AXIe chassis.
