Fiberbyte's revolutionary USB-inSync Data Acquisition Modules Synchronicity, Accuracy, Expandability
USB-inSync is a revolutionary technology which adds highly accurate timing and synchronization to the already powerful USB bus. The enhanced capability of USB-inSync, while preserving all the features of USB, enables new applications and solutions never before possible. USB-inSync has transformed the fundamental properties and utility of USB.
There is a limitation inherent in standard USB because USB devices act independently and are essentially stand-alone. While multiple devices can be connected through a single USB port, an operation in one device cannot be synchronized with another device over the USB cable. The USB bus was designed with a completely asynchronous point-to-point architecture that until now has prevented coordinated device operation. Thanks to Fiberbyte, this is not a limitation of USB any more. Fiberbyte has developed USB-inSync technology to transform the conventional USB bus into a synchronous, deterministic and expandable control platform. Such capabilities were never envisaged by the inventors of USB.
USB-inSync technology is capable of synchronizing up to 127 discrete devices within +/-5-ns of each other without requiring any additional equipment. USBinSync is able to provide added functionality utilizing standard USB cables, ports and hubs because the technology is embedded in every Fiberbyte device. All USB-inSync devices connected to a single USB port can be locked together and act as a single device. Additionally any device can be used as a timing reference to control external equipment. For the first time the USB port is capable of multi-device synchronization and time deterministic functionality traditionally associated with rack-based mainframe platforms such as PXI.
Computers have become integral and critical to manufacturing control and automation, and as a consequence are found all over the manufacturing floor. USB-inSync not only takes USB-based computer control to new levels of sophistication, but for the first time enables this power to be delivered with unparalleled mobility and flexibility through the PC, and better still, your everyday laptop! This is a revolutionary departure from cumbersome rack-based systems that require the addition of costly embedded processors. When using USB-inSync devices, each and every USB port can now be used for synchronous multi-device control and processing applications. There is no need for expensive synchronization controllers and hours spent programming to provide the features available with USB-inSync. All that is needed is a standard USB port, a USB cable, and a laptop PC.
To meet the needs of the most demanding data acquisition applications Fiberbyte has combined USB-inSync technology with 16 bit analogue inputs, 16 bit digital I/O, and digital triggers to create multifunction data acquisition modules. The DAQ-2500X will quickly become the solution of choice for PC I/O applications where portability, expandability, performance, and cost are significant considerations.
The DAQ-2500X offers continuous single-channel sampling rates up to 100kS/s. Four discrete ADCs deliver true synchronous acquisition at a combined rate of 400kS/s with an impressive continuous data throughput of 800kB/s. The 1MB FIFO enables on-board buffering of well over a second worth of data with all four ADC's sampling at 100kS/s. Fully programmable digital I/O and triggers make the DAQ-2500X perfect for numerous applications. For complete mobility the DAQ2500X will even operate from battery power.
Using the DAQ-2500X is simple with Fiberbyte's free software suite. The DAQ Control Center graphical user interface will control multiple devices for users with no programming experience. For experienced users the DAQ-2500X COM Server provides interfacing capability for most modern programming languages and software applications.
USB-inSync is 100% compatible with other USB devices, but only USB-inSync enabled devices will have multi-device synchronous and deterministic features. Fiberbyte is also able to integrate any I/O device with our technology, creating innumerable application possibilities for OEMs.
Let Fiberbyte USB-inSync transform the way you use USB. You'll never look back!
