Upgraded daqPC Responds To Customer Demand For Higher Sustained Recording and Playback Speed
Now capable of continuous and sustained rate of 600 Mbytes/second Continuing to demonstrate the companyâs technology leadership, ICS â part of Radstone Embedded Computing â today announced a significant upgrade to the acclaimed ICS daqPC Data Acquisition, Storage and Network System.Â Previously capable of an industry-leading sustained, continuous recording and playback speed of 400 MBytes/second, the upgrade delivers an astonishing 600 MBytes/second, placing the ICS daqPC well ahead of competing data acquisition and recording solutions. Â âThe growing importance of sensors â whether sonar, radar or radio â in todayâs demanding applications is leading to increases in channel density and the need for even greater bandwidth â and thatâs driving our customers to require ever-increasing processing power in order to capture more data more rapidly,â said Angsuman Rudra, Director of Systems at ICS.Â Â âThis announcement is in response to the demands of those customers for a powerful, compact and easy-to-use solution, and reinforces the leadership position of ICS in a highly competitive market.â The ICS daqPC is a PC-based, fully configured sensor processing solution; which is tailored by ICS to specific user requirements.Â Available in rackmount and portable versions, and using ICS and third party boards, a daqPC is integrated for real-time applications that require acquisition, processing and archiving of analog input signals.Â At the heart of the daqPC are ICS analog I/O products that provide high channel count and/or high bandwidth capability.Â The compelling competitive advantage of the daqPC is its high-speed record/playback capability, using removable hard drives:Â no other system currently available is capable of matching its sustained, continuous recording rate of 600 MBytes/second. This implies that at 200 kHz/channel sample rate up to 1500 channels of data (each digitized with a 16-bit ADC) can be recorded in real-time. Alternately, three 40 MHz bandwidth (flat-top) signals (sampled at 100 MHz rate) can be recorded in real-time. Maximum storage capacity of the daqPC in a 7U (12.3â) height chassis is over 2.8 terabytes.Â The daqPC is capable of analog playback of recorded data, features a 1 Gigabit network interface and supports time stamping recorded data. The upgraded daqPC is available immediately.
