RazorMax Express 16 CompuScope
16-Bit, 1 GS/s, PCIe Gen3 Digitizer / Oscilloscope

The GaGe RazorMax Express CompuScope PCIe Gen3 digitizer features unprecedented speed and resolution with either four or two 16-bit channels at 1 GS/s and 700 MHz bandwidth, with PCIe data streaming rates at 4+ GB/s.

The RazorMax Express is also available with two or four 16-bit channels at 500 MS/s and 350 MHz bandwidth. All models feature 4 GS (8 GB) of onboard digitizer sample memory standard.

The RazorMax 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 160 MHz bandwidth:

    Wideband Downconverter: DC20G100
    GaGe wideband downconverter systems feature up to 3 software selectable IF bandwidths, from 10 MHz to 160 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 RazorMax digitizer's 16-bit resolution and variable sample rate up to 1 GS/s.

    The 4 channel RazorMax 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 320 MHz.
