PXDAC4800 Overview

The Signatec PXDAC4800 is an exceptionally high-speed four channel Digital to Analog Conversion (DAC) PCIe instrument card which may be used as an Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG), a waveform playback device, or for generating multiple communication frequency bands.

The included PXDAC4800 Windows Playback Application is utilized to playback signal data that is loaded in onboard memory, to playback previously recorded signal data files, and for generating signal data patterns for each output including sine wave, square wave, triangle wave, sawtooth wave, and zeroes. Output waveforms may be "per-trigger" or "continuously looped" from the onboard memory. The DACs can also be provided with a continuous sustained data stream via the PCI Express (PCIe) bus up to 900 Megabytes per second (MB/s). This PCIe bus rate allows for providing up to 112.5 MS/s of addressable bandwidth at full 14-bit resolution for each of the four analog outputs.

The PXDAC4800 arbitrary waveform generator has quickly proven to be an industry leader in both performance and value, satisfying a wide array of customer requirements for signal generation. Many are now used in the following industries and applications:

  • Commercial Wireless Communications
  • - Manufacturing: Semiconductor, Functional Test
    - Multi-Channel Stimulus-Response Testing
    - I,Q Digital Modulation: Bluetooth, WiFi
    - Wideband IF Signals

  • Spectroscopy
  • - 2D IR Spectroscopy
    - Mid-IR Pulse Shaping

  • Aerospace and Defense
  • - RADAR: Phased Array Development
    - EW: Signal Recording and Playback
    - SIGINT: Threat Signal Simulation

  • University Laboratory Research
  • - Wideband Complex Signal Generation
    - Continuous Streaming Playback of Custom or Recorded Signals

The popularity of the Signatec PXDAC4800 can be attributable to its multi-channel capability, wide bandwidth, high-speed variable rates, large memory, and fast PCIe interface.

Each PXDAC4800 features 4 AC-coupled or DC-coupled channels with up to 590 MHz bandwidth and 14-bit or 8-bit sampling rates up to 1.2 GS/s. By adding additional AWG cards to the system, expanded channel counts can be achieved with synchronized external trigger and clock inputs.

The onboard 1 GB signal memory provides ample room for large, complex user generated waveform patterns. The PCIe x8 interface to the host PC dramatically increases the speed it takes to load waveform data onto the card. With the PXDAC4800, it takes less than 10 seconds to fill the 1 GB memory with 1,000 waveforms, versus other USB or Ethernet AWGs that may take as long as 10-15 minutes.

The PXDAC4800 is supplied with a complete Windows GUI Playback Scope App utilized for generating signal data output, to playback data loaded in RAM, or to stream playback of signal data files from the host PC.

Included are complete API Software Development Kits for C/C++, MATLAB, and LabVIEW for custom application development.
