Fully-Integrated Signal Solutions Overview
Designing Advanced Signal Technology Solutions Since 1988 RADAR Aerospace & Defense CommunicationsInstrumentationUltrasound & NDT for advanced applications. Signatec is a leading designer and manufacturer that works with its customers to build real-time signal solutions…
Fully-Integrated Systems Signatec designs and manufactures state-of-the-art PC based products in four key signal technology areas: DAQ - Data Acquisition Signal Waveform Digitizers DSP - Parallel Digital Signal Processing DAC - Signal Waveform Generation and Playback REC - Real-Time Signal Waveform Recording These products can be interconnected via Signatec’s high-speed buses with efficient data throughput for real-time applications. The Signatec Auxiliary Bus (SAB) consists of a 64-bit data bus mechanized via two 100 conductor ribbon cables running across the top edge of PCI boards. This allows the boards to accomplish multiple tasks under control of a signal processor device without PC intervention, effectively bypassing the PC host bus and PC operating system and therefore significantly improving system performance. Signatec’s specially designed, high-performance PC systems can house multiple interconnected boards for maximum system performance. Signatec systems utilize multiple independent PCI peer buses for efficient high-speed transfer rates with high-end base components and also support disk storage systems integrated within a single chassis. Signatec can also provide alternative customized systems tailored for your application needs. Complimentary yet powerful system software is also provided for manipulating Signatec products at the individual board or system level. Use Signatec’s powerful Maestro System Software to setup all hardware settings, record data from arbitrary data acquisition boards, recreate analog signals, view large amounts of signal data, run DSP applications and much more. In short, Signatec customers receive a fully functional signal system right out of the box.
High Speed Waveform Recorder PDA Series Digitizer Board IC1000 PC System IDSS Integrated Disk Storage Maestro System Software MS per second! What separates Signatec's data acquisition signal waveform digitizer products from other similar products in the industry is the ability to acquire and transfer data simultaneously. Signatec’s high-speed digitizers, complete with deep onboard memory configured to work as a FIFO, are ideal for applications where extremely long waveforms must be captured and recorded without any break in the analog record. Integrating Signatec's products allows for the creation of a high-speed waveform recorder with unprecedented performance. Start by selecting a PDA Series Digitizer with options for 8-bit or 14-bit A/D resolution and sample rates from 100MHz to 1GHz Integrate into a high-performance workstation class IC1000 PC Add up to 4TB of IDSS RAID storage integrated within a single chassis Utilize our easy to use recording software included at no charge
Scalable Recording Systems Multiple Channels Synchronized Recordings! Our data acquisition products are also designed with a master-slave operation feature that allows for connecting multiple digitizer boards together to create a simultaneous synchronized multi-channel acquisition system. In master-slave operation, the master board drives the clock and trigger signals for the slave boards so that data on the slave boards align sample-for-sample with the data on the master board. The following configurations can be achieved by linking multiple Signatec digitizer boards together: 1-6 Channels, 8-bit Resolution, 1 GHz Sampling Per Channel 1-6 Channels, 14-bit Resolution, 200 MHz Sampling Per Channel 2-12 Channels, 14-bit Resolution, 100 MHz Sampling Per Channel
