Guzik Introduces the WDM 5044 Waveform Digitizer Targeted at High Speed Data Acquisition for Systems Applications

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 7 /CNW/ -- Guzik Technical Enterprises today
announced the availability of their new WDM 5044 Waveform Digitizer, which
provides up to 6 GHz waveform capture and analysis bandwidth in a display-less
rack-mounted format. This digitizer addresses demanding ATE and OEM
applications in avionics, military electronics, physics, astronomy,
semiconductors, and a variety of other disciplines.

    Guzik has been providing high bandwidth test solutions for over 25 years
to the data storage industry for demanding head and media characterization,
and now makes this waveform capture and analysis expertise available for a
wider variety of applications. Besides the industry-leading acquisition system
at the core of the WDM 5000 family, the product features up to 2 Gpoint
waveform memory on each channel combined with customizable hardware parametric
processing. The WDM 5044 provides 4 GHz bandwidth in 4 channel mode and 6 GHz
bandwidth in 2 channel mode. In order to facilitate the fastest possible
waveform transfer back to the host computer, the WDM 5044 utilizes a high
speed PCI Express cabled interface.

    Customers can work with Guzik to develop custom measurement algorithms
specific to their application and have them built directly into to the WDM
5044's FPGA-based processing engine, increasing throughput and offloading
complex waveform processing tasks from the host processor to the instrument's
digital processor.

    "Current modular and rack-mount digitizers aimed at data acquisition in
systems typically offer significantly lower performance, and oscilloscopes
used in these applications are expensive and provide un-used functionality.
The WDM 5000 Series was designed to provide high performance waveform
acquisition with a small footprint at a low cost relative to alternative
approaches. It features industry-leading waveform capture memory combined with
a high powered FPGA-based processing engine," said company founder and CEO Dr.
Nahum Guzik.

    The WDM 5044 sells for $69,000 and is available for shipment immediately.
It is the first member of a new family of high performance modular instruments
from Guzik. It includes the WDM 5000 Signal Explorer software utility
providing control, display and waveform export capability. In addition, Matlab
drivers are provided.

    Interested customers should contact or consult for more information.
