With eXpert PCIe Data Streaming Firmware, acquired data can be simultaneously streamed to host PC memory via the PCIe Gen3 x8 interface at sustained rates up to 2 GB/s (2-CHs * 500 MS/s per CH * 2 bytes per sample for 16-bit data) for real-time continuous signal recording operations.

Optionally stream acquired data from the RazorPlus Express to a high-performance Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) for signal processing and data recording in real-time! Gage CompuScope C SDK ready-made compiled sample programs illustrate PCIe data streaming to a GPU and effective exploitation of GPU parallelized vector processing to attain 10X ~ 100X faster analysis rates than the host CPU.

The RazorPlus Express can also be combined with wideband downconverters to be the heart of a wideband, multi-channel, RF/Microwave signal analysis and recording system that can cover signal frequencies up to 27 GHz with 160 MHz bandwidth.

    Wideband Downconverter: DCA27G
    GaGe downconverter systems feature a single RF input and two bandwidth mode options for 3 software selectable IF bandwidths: 10 MHz / 40 MHz / 100 MHz OR 10 MHz / 80 MHz / 160 MHz. The RF signal tuning covers 50 MHz to 27 GHz to provide unparalleled real-time signal recording and analysis capability ideally suited for use with the RazorPlus digitizer's 16-bit resolution and variable sample rate up to 500 MS/s.

    10 MHz reference inputs and outputs on both the digitizers and downconverter units provide a single frequency reference for synchronized system performance.

    SpectraScopeRT is a Windows based spectrum analyzer application that requires no programming and allows for integrated operational control of both the downconverter receiver and the digitizer for signal capture, analysis, recordings. Analysis displays include IQ Time Domain, Frequency Domain, I Spectrum, IQ Power Spectrum, Constellation Plot, Spectrogram Plot, Persistence Plot, and Histogram Plot.

    The primary advantage of SpectraScopeRT is the ability to conduct real-time streaming signal recordings to drive storage with provided monitoring capability to ensure the recording process is operating with expected signal data and without errors.
