The PA72 platform is a platform of flexibility. It consists of a base board and one or two daughter boards. In daughter boards there is choice from several different generators, digitizers, filters, and Flexible Digital I/O modules. Also custom daughter boards can easily be created. This allows you to configure a data acquisition card exactly tailored to your needs. The PA72 concept provides a flexible and cost effective solution for medium and high end analog functions.

Each daughter board is optimized for best signal performance. A PA72 daughter board typically has Differential In-/Outputs, Low THD, Low Noise and High Accuracy.

PA72G16400 -  16-bit / 400Msps AWGPA72G16400 - 16-bit / 400Msps AWG

The PA72G16400 is a 16-bit arbitrary waveform generator, capable of generating waveforms at speeds up to 400Msps. The high resolution and the high sample rate allows generating signals with very low quantization noise levels. An onboard offset voltage source allows generating offset signals while maintaining optimal utilization of the DAC’s digital range. With the 8MWord of memory, there is lots of room for uploading several different patterns, allowing switching patterns with minimal bus communication.

PA72BPF - Dual differential band pass filterPA72BPF - Dual differential band pass filter

The PA72BPF daughter board is an additional filter board. It typically contains two selectable differential 3rd order elliptic band pass filters. These filter modules are tailored by Applicos to the customers’ requirements. The filters can be used to filter the output signal of the generator daughter boards to achieve an even better distortion and noise suppression.
