ZTEC Releases High Performance Signal Generator for PCI
The new ZT530PCI provides powerful arbitrary waveform, function generator, and digital pattern output capabilities in popular PCI format
Albuquerque, NMBy porting the popular ZT530 family of product to PCI, ZTEC continues to demonstrate its commitment to the platform. With two 16-bit channels at 400 MSamples/second, the ZT530PCI is one of the most powerful signal generator products for PCI. The ZT530PCI is ideal for PC based commercial, scientific, and military/aerospace ATE applications. This innovative modular instrument product also provides 32 TTL digital output lines at 160 MHz. For complete system integration, the ZTEC timing bus can be used to synchronize multiple ZT530PCI devices for high channel count generation applications. The timing bus can also be used with other ZTEC PCI devices, such as the ZT450PCI digital storage oscilloscope.
The ZT530PCI is built on the ZTEC Universal Instrument Platform (UIP). This innovative and proprietary building block technology allows ZTEC to deploy common instrument hardware across multiple modular bus architectures, including PCI. As UIP instruments utilize the same hardware core, ZTEC is able to deliver a higher quality, higher performance, and lower cost modular instrument solution to our customers.
To get you up and running quickly, the ZWave soft front panel software is provided for full interactive instrument control. For programmatic control, the ZT530PCI comes with a plug-and-play instrument driver that can be used with commonly used software development environments, such as LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Visual Basic, and C/C++. An example program library is provided to demonstrate the use of the driver for typical applications.
The entire ZT530 family includes the ZT530PCI for standard PCI, ZT530PXI for CompactPCI/PXI, and ZT532VXI for VXI. Please contact ZTEC for more information or a live product demonstration.
