Ndigo6G-12

Versatile pulse acquisition platform

The Ndigo6G-12 offers 6400Msps sample rate, 12 bits resolution and a greatly improved readout rate of 6000MB/s.
Zero suppression

Zero suppression

Detect pulses above a certain threshold and only acquire the relevant data to massively reduce the amount of data that needs to be copied and analysed.
Configurable DC offset

Configurable DC offset

When acquiring unipolar pulses, shift the baseline to the edge of the ADC range to double your dynamic range.
Flexible utility functions

Flexible utility functions

A multitude of useful details help you to create a highly integrated setup with a minimum of external components. Using the integrated TiGer timing pattern generator can provide digital pulse patterns to control your experiment or internal triggers. Use gate and veto functions with our gating logic. This also works across channels or from the additional digital input with a flexible trigger matrix.
Streaming architecture

Streaming architecture

The buffers of the Ndigo6G-12 are only limited by the size of your PC's main memory. Data is streamed at a rate of 6000MByte/s concurrently to data acquisition. There is no dead time and latency is minimized.

The Ndigo6G-12 is a hybrid ADC/TDC-solution for the acquisition of short pulses.  It builds on the established platform of the Ndigo5G-10, but takes it to the next level in both, performance and flexibility.

The Ndigo6G-12 is particularly well-suited for time of flight applications like LIDAR or TOF mass spectrometry. Pulse arrival times can be measured with an accuracy down to 5 ps in combination with information on pulse shape such as area or amplitude.

Four channels at 1600 Msps with 12 Bits resolution can be recorded independently or combined to two or one channel(s) with higher dynamic range or up to 6400 Msps. The Ndigo6G-12 comprises, in addition, four TDC channels with a resolution of 13 ps.
