RadioProcessor: Complete RF
Acquisition and Excitation System with Digital
Detection, Real-Time Signal Processing and
RadioProcessor is SpinCore
Technologies' general purpose,
broadband, radio frequency (RF) digital data
acquisition and excitation system. The
RadioProcessor can serve as a complete system
console for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)
or Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (NQR) with
spectrometer frequencies from 0 to 100 MHz
(certain restrictions apply, see the Manual).
This unique digital system is housed on a
small form factor USB board, providing users
with a compelling price/size/performance
proposition unmatched by any other device on
the market today.
Integrates excitation and acquisition
components onto a single board.
Directly captures and digitally
demodulates IF/RF signals using quadrature
detection. The desired baseband bandwidth is
user definable through software.
Generates completely formed RF excitation
pulses as well as high resolution digital
Supports 2 analog I/O channels and 4
digital output channels.
Select models have Arbitrary Waveform
Generation (AWG or 'shaped pulse')
Maintains signal coherence between
excitation and acquisition systems at all
Autonomously signal-averages the baseband
data between multiple acquisitions.
Samples the input signal at up to 75 Ms/s
with 14-bit resolution.
Captures input signals above the Nyquist
frequency, up to approximately 100 MHz.
With signal detection enabled, provides up
to 10 MHz bandwidth of baseband data.
Direct Digital Synthesis generates RF
output pulses with 14-bit resolution up to
300 Ms/s clock frequency.
Standard clock stability of 100 ppm, with
optional oven-controlled clock oscillator
(OCXO) of 200 ppb.
Pulse setting resolution up to 13.3 ns,
pulses from 66.6 ns to days per interval.
Zero-latency phase and frequency
Wide-bandwidth input amplifier and A/D
converter allow for undersampling
