Firmware Options The M9203A PXIe High-Speed Digitizer/Wideband Digital Receiver provides several firmware options: – DGT: Digitizer firmware – INT: Interleaved channel sampling functionality – FDK1: Custom firmware capablility – TSR 2: Triggered simultaneous acquisition and readout – DDC: Wideband real-time digital down-conversion
Easy firmware switch A simple call to the configuration function will enable to switch to the required option.
DGT digitizer firmware The digitizer firmware: –– Allows standard data acquisition, including: digitizer initialization, setting of the acquisition and clocking modes, management of channel triggering for best synchronization, storing data in the internal memory and/or transferring them through the backplane bus. –– Implements multi-record acquisition functionality. –– Supports fixed internal clocking frequency with internal or external reference, and variable frequency external clock. –– Offers programmable binary decimation to lower the sample rate by a factor of 2n where n is defined in the range 1 to 10 for single record. e.g. you can select from 1.6 GS/s down to 1.5625 MS/s. –– Trigger time interpolator (TTI): high precision integrated time to digital converter can be used to increase time measurement accuracy.
INT interleaved channel sampling functionality This interleave option allows two channels to be combined and to reach 3.2 GS/s in one channel acquisition mode.
FDK custom firmware capability This option enables loading4 custom firmware created with the U5340A FPGA development kit5.
TSR triggered simultaneous acquisition and readout The triggered simultaneous acquisition and readout architecture allows to continuously acquire new records while reading previous ones. TSR solution is dedicated to applications requiring no trigger loss, achieving longer recording time when compares with standard digitizer (-DGT). TSR option main features: –– High trigger rate with guaranteed no lost trigger for specific configuration3. –– Easy to use solution, implementing an optimal and automated control of memory addressing. –– Selecting larger memory size option allows longer record size and provides larger buffer for data transfer to host PC, especially useful for applications with non-periodic trigger or very high trigger rate during a limited period.
DDC real-time digital down-conversion The real-time digital down-conversion option (-DDC), in addition to the basic digitizer functionality, implements a real-time digital decimation and filtering on the digitized data, allowing the user to tune and zoom on the signals of interest. This exclusive IP algorithm provides very powerful and flexible digital downconversion on 2 channels. The filters and local oscillators (LO) are synchronized to maintain constant phase and timing relationships allowing phase-coherent post processing. The DDC provides three main functions: –– Frequency shifting (tune): Independently shifting each channels IF signal into baseband, allows the analysis bandwidth to be set around the signal of interest. –– Data reduction (zoom): Reducing the bandwidth and sample rate to match the analyzed signal decreases the amount of data that needs to be transferred for a given capture duration, in turn accelerating post-processing operations. –– Magnitude trigger: Setting the magnitude level that the down converted signal needs to achieve at a specified frequency and bandwidth to generate a digital trigger on all channels. These functions allow isolation of the signal of interest from other signals in a crowded spectrum, improved dynamic range as the integrated noise is reduced, and increased SNR and effective number of bits (ENOB). The resulting advantage for your application is a reduced test time, while improving overall test efficiency.

Definitions for specifications Specifications describe the warranted performance of calibrated cards that have been stored for a minimum of 2 hours within the operating temperature range of 0 to 50 °C, unless otherwise stated, and after a 45 minute warm-up period. Data represented in this document are specifications unless otherwise noted. Characteristics describe product performance that is useful in the application of the product, but that is not covered by the product warranty. Characteristics are often referred to as Typical or Nominal values. – Typical describes characteristic performance, which 80% of cards will meet when operated over a 20 to 30 °C temperature range. Typical performance is not warranted. – Nominal describes representative performance that is useful in the application of the product when operated over a 20 to 30 °C temperature range. Nominal performance is not warranted. Note: All graphs contain measured data from several units at room temperature unless otherwise noted.
Calibration The M9203A is factory calibrated and shipped with a certificate of calibration.
1. On older PCs with minimum RAM, installation can take a long time when installing the IO Libraries Suite and the .NET Framework. 2. Because of the installation procedure, less disk space may be required for operation than is required for installation. The amount of space listed above is required for installation. The .NET Framework Runtime Components are installed by default with most Windows installations, so you may not need this amount of available disk space.
