Spectrum\'s SCAPP Currently digitizers have a bottleneck caused by having to use either the host PC's central processor with 8 or 16 cores or a FPGA that is complex to program. Spectrum Instrumentation has solved this problem with its new SCAPP software option - the Spectrum CUDA Access for Parallel Processing - that opens an easy-to-use yet extremely powerful way to digitize, process and analyze electronic signals. SCAPP allows a CUDA-based Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) to be used directly between any Spectrum digitizer and the PC. The big advantage is that data is passed directly from the digitizer to the GPU where high-speed parallel processing is possible using the GPU board's multiple (up to 5000) processing cores. That provides a significant performance enhancement when compared to sending data directly to a PC that may have only 8 or 16 cores. It becomes even more important when signals are being digitized at high-speeds such as 50 MS/s, 500 MS/s or even 5 GS/s.

Spectrum\'s M2p platform board Grosshansdorf, Germany - 8 November 2017. Spectrum Instrumentation announces the first products of a completely new designed digitizer card series. It consists of the new platform-board M2p, which will be the PCIe base for all upcoming products for the next years. The other part is the new 59xx module, which will be available in many variations. M2p platform and 59xx module form 13 different new digitizer cards with lots of options regarding speed and channels.

Oliver Rovini, CTO at Spectrum, said: "These products will be the heart of a new mid-range digitizer series which is designed to cover signal frequencies from 1 MHz to 40 MHz. Within that range, the new units will smoothly replace all our current 12, 14 and 16-bit models giving our existing customers an easy upgrade path with a lot of technical advantages. As such, we see many applications for these new products in the areas of Ultrasound, Laser, Lidar, Radar, Automotive and big physics experiments."[Continue reading →]
