NI PCI-6120 and PXI-6120 devices combine the latest in PC technologies to deliver simultaneous sampling, high-throughput capabilities for data acquisition and control systems requiring both low- and high-channel counts.

In warp mode, these devices can sample up to 1 MS/s per channel. When using warp mode, an external clock must be provided to the analog input. This external clock can come from an external device or from one of the onboard counters on the device itself (see "Implementing Warp Mode on NI 6120 and NI 613x Devices" below).

An NI 6120 is ideal for multiple applications such as high-speed continuous data logging; stimulus/response measurements requiring synchronization between analog input, analog output, digital I/O, and counter/timer operations; automotive applications requiring 42 V; ultrasound; and dynamic strain applications. NI 6120 devices provide more than enough accuracy for both DC and dynamic signals with as much as 95 dB of spurious-free dynamic range and as little as 39 µV of noise. Each input channel has a 100 kHz antialias filter to improve frequency-domain measurements and analysis. You can turn the filter off from software for transient and pulse measurements.
