The Ndigo Crate is specifically designed to house up to eight Ndigo digitizers with a single computer while providing adequate space, power and cooling not available in a standard PC.

The enclosure is specifically designed to operate multiple synchronized cronologic boards in order to create, for example, a high-speed data acquisition system with up to 32 ADC channels. It can also be used to house other DAQ cards, GPUs for high-performance computing, storage adapters, or networking equipment.

The connection of the external chassis to the PC happens over a PCIe 2.0 x16 link with a full-duplex bandwidth of 2x 8 GByte/s. You can add as many Ndigo Crates directly to your PC as you have free PCIe slots available. You can even add more units by daisy-chaining crates!

The PCIe extension is fully transparent. The operating system can not distinguish between boards in the PCIe expansion box and boards inside the PC itself. No drivers are required.

The slot covers are located at the front of the enclosure. As a result, status information is fully visible and your connectors and cables are nicely reachable during operation.

The crate is delivered as a set including an interfacing cable and a low-profile PC link board.

Crate-3 and Crate-5 can be used as PCIe to PCI adapter while providing five additional PCIe slots.
