Data Acquisition Unit for 40GHz Network Analyzer

Executive Summary

Our client is an American manufacturer of oscilloscopes, protocol analyzers, and other test equipment. They have launched a range of high speed Network Analyzers including a 40GHz Network Analyzer targeted to measure the S-parameters for the device under test. One of the main components of Network Analyzer is the data acquisition unit. The data acquisition unit typically samples processes sensor analog signals and converts them to digital for display and storage. The client wanted a develop a data acquisition unit that can integrate high speed pulser-sampler modules with quad high speed (100MSPS) analog to digital converters. They wanted a design partner who can help in deriving low cost components & hardware design for high accuracy clock and Timebase circuit used to generate programmable clock output as per requirement.

Based on the performance requirement, eInfochips performed a detailed hardware component analysis and helped in designing a Kintex UltraScale FPGA based data acquisition unit. In addition to hardware design, eInfochips also helped in Windows and Linux device drivers for high-speed data transfer.
