The next generation high-speed

A/D acquisition system capable of digitizing an analog signal at rates from 200-1500MHz.

The acquisition system is Linux-based and includes a full X-Midas based software suite. The large array of high-speed disk drives enables continuous collection at one of four user selectable bandwidths up to 500MHz from an analog prefilter front-end. Simultaneous record and offload capabilities allow for 24/7 archiving. Removable drive bays allow quick and easy physical transfer of collected data.

The VR2 system is highly customizable for each individual’s needs. Packaging options range from fixed rack mount to ruggedized mobile suitcase. Optional data transfer options include tape drive(s) and recovery system(s).
