U5310A 10-bit ADC Card

from 5 GS/s to 10 GS/s, with real-time processing


The U5310A is a true two channel PCIe, DC coupled 10-bit DAQ card (or ADC card), providing sample rates up to 10 GS/s. With 10-bit resolution across a wide 2.5 GHz bandwidth, and real-time processing capabilities, this high-speed signal acquisition card is designed for embedded OEM applications in a variety of advanced imaging and processing systems.

Featuring unique spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) and signal noise ratio (SNR) performances in high frequencies, especially at 250 mV full scale range (FSR), the U5310A PCIe digitizer is particularly suited for embedded OEM applications requiring digitizer sampling at wide bandwidth and high dynamic range. Overall performance enables final products to more precisely measure time of flight in several end system applications.

Real-time proccessing

At the heart of the ADC card, the FPGA enables real-time signal processing. The following firmware options are available:

  • The interleaved option (-INT) that enables up to 10 GS/s on one channel, doubling the sampling rate while maintaining the same signal integrity high performances
  • The average option (-AVG) that allows accumulation of waveforms from 1 to 16k triggers on dual synchronous channels at up to 5 GS/s, or on single channel at 10 GS/s. An innovative programmable trigger output can be used to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and increase the ability to isolate very small peaks from the signal noise
  • The continuous simultaneous acquisition and readout with triggers (-CST) option that supports multiple triggered record acquisitions and simultaneous output data streaming.
