NI PCI-5412 100 MS/s, 14-Bit Arbitrary Waveform Generator

Starting at $ 4,464 (view pricing options)
  • 14-bit resolution, 100 MS/s sampling rate
  • 8, 32, or 256 MB of shared waveform data and sequence instruction memory
  • Multimodule synchronization with <20 ps skew
  • Function generator emulation mode
  • 20 MHz analog bandwidth
The National Instruments PCI-5412 is a 100 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator featuring 14-bit resolution and up to 256 MB of onboard memory in a single PCI board. Because the NI PCI-5412 uses the PCI bus to communicate with the host computer, you can download waveforms at up to 84 MB/s – far faster than traditional GPIB-based instruments. Using the PCI-5412 Synchronization and Memory Core (SMC) architecture, you can create mixed-signal test systems by synchronizing the generator with digitizers and digital waveform generator/analyzers, or synchronizing two or more arbitrary waveform generators to form a phase-coherent multichannel generator.
