Keysight newsroom announces today the development of a highly dense, 64 synchronous multichannel data acquisition system. The system is composed of eight M9703B AXIe high-speed digitizers in a 14-slot chassis and was developed for an enterprise leader in satellite telecommunication systems, where its main requirement was multichannel synchronization and FPGA programming capability.
Keysight modular solutions, based on AXIe products, are extremely compact. This allows reduction of size while increasing the number of acquisition channels. With an innovative design, the system has eight digitizers within one chassis. The synchronization is realized through its unique AXIe local bus backplane. Up to 13 modules could potentially be installed in the chassis for a total of 104 channels.
“The key element of this system is the AXIe multi-channel multi-boards synchronization capability, which make possible a high-speed, multi-channel data acquisition with customized, real-time signal processing and unique phase coherency,” said Pierre-François Maistre, Keysight R&D project manager. “We already have validated this 64-channel data acquisition system according to our customer’s requirements and we are now looking at potentially enlarging it up to 104 channels.”
