ADLINK Announces 64-Channel PCI Express DAQ Cards

ADLINK Technology Inc. introduces the DAQe-2200 series of high-performance multi-functional data acquisition cards that take advantage of the high-bandwidth benefit of the x1 PCI Express(R) bus for large-scale data transfers of up to 250 MB/s. The DAQe-2200 series samples up to 64 analog channels with various input ranges (up to 10 V) and sampling speeds (up to 3 MS/s) while offering a differential mode for 32 analog channels to maximum noise elimination. This series features analog and digital triggering, 2-CH 12-bit analog outputs with waveform generation, 24-CH programmable digital I/O lines, and a 2-CH 16-bit general-purpose timer/counter—ideal for high-speed high-volume data acquisition in industrial and laboratory measurement/automation, actuator control, ultrasonic, and acoustic applications.

ADLINK Technology DAQe-2200 64-Channel High-Performance PCI Express DAQ CardThe DAQe-2200 series consists of the DAQe-2204, a 12-bit A/D resolution card with a 3MS/s simultaneous-sampling rate; the DAQe-2205, a 16-bit A/D resolution card with a 500 kS/s simultaneous-sampling rate; and the DAQe-2206, a 16-bit A/D resolution card with a 250 kS/s simultaneous-sampling rate.

The DAQe-2200 series also features simultaneous analog input and output at full speed, an SSI (system synchronization interface) bus to allow up to four cards to be synchronized, auto-calibration that adjusts the gain and offset to within specified parameters, and scatter-gather bus mastering. The scatter-gather bus-mastering feature allows the acquisition of a large amount of data at a high speed by transferring data directly to and from memory through the DMA controller up to the size limited by the system memory.

Price and Availability
The DAQe-2200 series of cards are competitively priced starting at $895 and are available with discounts in volume.
