Razor Express 16XX CompuScope
16-Bit, 200 MS/s, PCIe Digitizer / Oscilloscope

The GaGe Razor Express16XX CompuScope PCIe digitizer board features 16-bit resolution with sampling rates up to 200 MS/s with true Effective Number of Bits (ENOB) of 11.7-bits with 10 MHz input.

Onboard digitizer sample memory is expandable up to 8 GS (16 GB) and up to 8 Razor Express digitizers can be combined for up to 32 channels in a single system.

The Razor Express can be combined with wideband downconverter models and PC solutions to be the heart of a wideband, multi-channel, RF/Microwave signal analysis and recording system covering frequencies up to 27 GHz and up to 100 MHz bandwidth:

    Wideband Downconverter: DC20G100
    GaGe wideband downconverter systems feature up to 3 software selectable IF bandwidths, from 10 MHz to 100 MHz. The RF signal tuning covers 50 MHz to 27 GHz to provide unparalleled real-time signal recording and analysis capability ideally suited for use with the Razor digitizer's 16-bit resolution and variable sample rate up to 200 MS/s.

    The 4 channel Razor Express models can support 2 downconverters in baseband mode (IQ outputs) or 4 downconverters in superhet mode (IF outputs). 10 MHz reference inputs and outputs on both the digitizers and downconverter units provide a single frequency reference for synchronized system performance.

    DynamicSignals Spectrum Analyzer software, SpectraScopeRT, requires no programming and allows for control of receiver center frequency, bandwidth, plus signal recording, and playback. SpectraScopeRT features real-time FFT power spectrums (with peak hold and persistence), spectrograms, histograms, and time domain displays while recording, and upon recording playback.

    SpectraScopeRT also supports dual receiver, double bandwidth operation for both real-time display and gap-free recording. This allows 2 downconverters feeding a single digitizer to display and record parallel side by side bandwidths, effectively doubling the available bandwidth, up to 200 MHz.

The GaGe Razor Express CompuScope digitizer series is also available with 12-bit or 14-bit A/D resolution:

12-bit Razor Express 12X2 PCIe Digitizers
14-bit Razor Express 14X2 PCIe Digitizers
