Application Notes

  • The ADQ series of digitizers has an advanced clock system for flexible synchronization to external equipment. This document is a general description of the clock system. It also contains examples on how to use the clock system.

    Clocking

  • The ADQ series of digitizers supports several modes of acquisition to serve a large variety of measurement situations. This application note gives an overview of the available acquisition modes and provides guidelines on when to use the different modes.

    Data Acquisition Modes

  • The ADQ digitizers are equipped with real time firmware support for waveform averaging. This document describes the different averaging functions that are available, and how they should be configured.

    Waveform Averaging

  • The trigger block in the ADQ has several configuration options. This application note describes the different triggering functions that are available, and how they should be configured. The differences and similarities between ADQ V5 and ADQ V6 digitizers are highlighted.

    Trigger

  • This application note describe how to use the time stamp functionality for measuring time duration between different events.

    Time Stamp

  • Some of the ADQ series of digitizers is offered with a biased input. This is used for systems with unipolar pulses. A biased analog input makes it possible to use the entire signal range for the unipolar signal. This document is based on ADQ1600-PB. Differences may exist on other digitizer models.

    Positive Bias

  • This application note describe how to use the arbitrary waveform generator for generating signals on the SDR14.
