Flexible configurable PXI Platform
This family of bit-pattern generators is based on the “Flexible Configurable PXI Platform” (FlexCPP). This platform allows a couple of customer configured bit-pattern generators.
The PXI520x Bit-Pattern Generator family features up to 8 simultaneously working channels divided into 2 modules with 4 channels. Every channel provides a 8 Bit TTL digital output. Each module is equipped with an on-board memory holding the arbitrary Bit-Pattern for up to 4 channels.
The sample clock of the PXI520x Bit-Pattern Generator is derived from a programmable master clock provided by the internal PLL. This allows a highly accurate setting of the sample clock. A post divider offers an additional integer division of the master clock frequency for output generation.
Reference clock output
The PXI520x Bit-Pattern Generator provides a reference clock signal for every generator module on the output connector. This signal can be used for synchronization purpose of a following signal chain.
Every channel of the PXI520x Bit-Pattern Generator is equipped with an 8Bit digital bus driver. So digital output signals compliant to TTL standard are provided to the user. All digital output ports are referenced to a common ground.
User specific daughter board
The PXI520x Bit-Pattern Generator devices feature a connector interface to a user specific daughter board. For fixture of the board various mounting studs are available. So the whole placement area of the right adjacent slot within a PXI chassis is provided to the user.
In addition to the digital outputs and the reference clock signal the connector interface contains two supply voltages (+3.3V and +12V) with their according common ground. This features the user a solid base for his circuit design.
