FCiX Cobra/CobraMax
8-Bit, 2 or 4 GS/s, 2 Channel LAN Digitizer

* This legacy model is now discontinued.

The GaGe FCiX Cobra/CobraMax LAN digitizer features 2 channels of 8-bit resolution with a maximum sampling rate up to 2 or 4 GS/s for one channel and up to 1 or 2 GS/s for two channels and true Effective Number of Bits (ENOB) up to 7.6-bits with 10 MHz input.

FCiX Cobra/CobraMax LAN digitizers provide remote capabilities and distributed measurements by seamlessly connecting to any existing Ethernet network via the 10/100/1000BaseTx socket interface. The FCiX Cobra/CobraMax is VXI-11 compliant, allowing discovery of the digitizer instrument over a TCP/IP network, and is fully accessible and operable via a web browser or with the programming-free GaGeScope PC Oscilloscope Software.
