4Fully-Integrated Systems 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.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.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.Signatec designs and manufactures state-of-the-art PC based products in four key signal technology areas:DAQ - Data Acquisition Signal Waveform DigitizersDSP - Parallel Digital Signal ProcessingDAC - Signal Waveform Generation and PlaybackREC - Real-Time Signal Waveform Recording
5High Speed Waveform Recorder 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.PDA Series Digitizer Board+IC1000 PC SystemStart by selecting a PDA Series Digitizer with options for 8-bit or 14-bit A/D resolution and sample rates from 100MHz to 1GHzIntegrate into a high-performance workstation class IC1000 PCAdd up to 4TB of IDSS RAID storage integrated within a single chassisUtilize our easy to use recording software included at no charge+IDSS Integrated Disk Storage+Maestro System Software
6Scalable Recording Systems Multiple Channels Synchronized Recordings!The following configurations can be achieved by linking multiple Signatec digitizer boards together: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.1-6 Channels, 8-bit Resolution, 1 GHz Sampling Per Channel1-6 Channels, 14-bit Resolution, 200 MHz Sampling Per Channel2-12 Channels, 14-bit Resolution, 100 MHz Sampling Per Channel
7Acquisition, Real-Time DSP and Playback Capabilities Stream Data to Powerful DSP and Playback Options!Continuously transfer your digitized data to Signatec’s PMP1000 at up to 500 MB/s for 72 GIPS of real-time processing performance using 9 of TI’s C6414 DSPs, the perfect solution for many demanding processing applications.Signatec’s new PDAC4000 signal generator provides 4 16-bit DAC channels to accurately produce output signal frequencies up to 400 MHz, each capable of outputting up to 1 GS/s.Please contact Signatec to learn more about X-PORT, the PMP1000’s 3rd external interface, an open source, user-programmable device that opens the product up for a new level of advanced signal applications
8Maestro – System Software Added-Value SoftwareMaestro – System SoftwareUse our powerful Maestro System Software for manipulating Signatec products at the board or system level. Maestro can be used 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.Signatec designed the Maestro system software suite as a menu driven program to orchestrate all Signatec products within a PC and requires little to no programming on the part of the user.Maestro's ability to allow users to begin using their Signatec products immediately rather than having to develop their own unique custom software saves costly development time.
9Added-Value Software Software Tools Signatec prides itself on helping its customers to create their own specific applications. Inside of each product software suite, at no additional charge, one can expect to find:Product installation softwareWindows and Linux drivers and librariesA complete library of functions for developing user specific applicationsSource code for the Signatec function librarySource code examples that illustrate how to use the function library for building applicationsDiagnostic executable programs for verifying product functionalitySignatec's Integrator software for application development and debugging for DSP products
10Additional Support Options Signatec Training and Development ServicesSignatec also offers comprehensive training sessions and development services to select customers. Training can be held at our corporate headquarters in Newport Beach, California, or at the customer's site location, and allows customers to work with our highly skilled engineers to provide a comprehensive hands-on approach in understanding Signatec products and how to maximize their performance potential. A typical training session schedule includes:Physical System LayoutSystem OverviewSystem Specification DetailsFunctionality TestingSoftware Coding Instruction
12RADARSignatec Products are Ideal to Create High-Performance, Low-Cost RADAR SystemsContinuously Receive and Process 500 MB/sec of Digitized Data in Real-TimeA Fraction of the Price Delivering Several Factors of Greater PerformanceHigh-performance processing of data is essential for 21st Century RADAR systems to detect and classify targets. For the many different types of RADAR systems, each with their own specialty for detecting and/or tracking, additional technologies are required for combining multiple RADAR system results into a higher order and more trusted integrated picture.Signatec delivers the ability to digitize analog signals at up to 1 GB/s and stream that data at up to 500 MB/s to a powerful parallel DSP board for real-time processing.
13CommunicationsUse Signatec’s High-Speed Acquisition, Parallel Processing and Playback Systems for Real-Time Communications SolutionsParallel DSP Processing Board Makes Any System Software-DefinableAutomate SIGINT Systems to Rapidly Scan and Process Spectrum Data ContinuouslyMany Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) systems require vast amounts of real-time processing capability. Yet, a paradoxical relationship exists between the need for advanced processing power and a marginally increasing, or stagnant, federal budget. As a result, aerospace and defense communities place an ever increasing demand for quality, efficiency and affordability from commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processing systems.Signatec signal systems deliver at every level.
14Ultrasound & NDTSignatec’s products dramatically enhance analysis for critical ultrasound applications with the ability to acquire, process, and/or playback data in real-time.Signatec’s products offer extreme advantages to NDT applications where it is cost critical to get tested components back into service in the quickest manner possible.Digitize pulsed signals at up to 1 GHz per channel and stream that data continuously to Signatec’s powerful DSP board for the advanced real-time processing required in many advanced medical imaging (e.g. tissue elasticity) and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) applications.Aging structures, airframes and materials, especially when exposed to harsh environments, require NDT to ensure material integrity, airworthiness and overall safety for humans as well as the environment.For health applications, and commercial situations where downtime equates to significant loss of revenue, Signatec’s systems deliver essential high-speed, high-resolution and real-time solutions.
