Glass cockpit displays rely on computerized systems that integrate multiple data inputs and controls. They can present more information in the available space than conventional instrument panels.
CPUs and FPGAs are the traditional workhorse technologies employed in Data Acquisition Units (DAU). We compare the advantages and disadvantages of these technologies.
Combatting Sample Clock Jitter with Signal to Noise Ratio in a New World of High Resolution Data Converters
Jitter is a noise source that’s becoming increasingly more important to limit. Learn more about combatting sample clock jitter with Signal to Noise Ratio in a new world of high resolution data converters.
Software-defined radio is by no means a new concept, but as technological capabilities advance, the practicality of it in a variety of processes grows and is expected to become the dominant technology in radio communications in the long term.
Addressing environmental and operational issues for data acquisition systems onboard space launch vehicles
New Fibre Channel (FC) disks are no longer available and every new system includes Ethernet. Learn more about bridging legacy FC and modern Ethernet clients with iSCSI and NAS.
For systems that need higher performance and where size and weight are critical, newer “backplane Ethernet” standards offer big advantages including higher performance, fewer parts and fewer wires.
Fault tolerance systems are defined by their ability to continue operating in the event of a component failure. So how do we ensure the data processing continues?
The Removable Memory Cartridge is scalable and adaptable to wide variety of applications that require removable yet rugged storage.
There are many aspects of analog digitization that affect the overall performance of a system. Native resolution of the ADC, sample clock jitter and noise are just a few examples, each becoming tougher the faster the sample speed.
