The DP214 PCI-based digitizer uses silicon germanium technology for the acquisition of signals with up to 1 GHz analog bandwidth. The DP214 is also able to digitize signals at up to 2 GS/s and store data in up to 16 Mpoints of waveform memory. The DP214 has front-panel control I/O ports that offer advanced trigger, clock, and digitizer functionality. External trigger input has programmable gain control and the cards include a "trigger out" capability that can be used to trigger other cards or devices (oscilloscopes, function generators, logic analyzers, etc.).
