Spectrum Instrumentation has extended its M5i flagship series of high-speed PCIe digitizers, adding two new models with ultrawide bandwidths that go up to 4.7GHz for -3dB attenuation or even 5GHz for -5dB attenuation. The models M5i.3360-x16 and M5i.3367-x16 provide one and two channels respectively. Each card is capable of sampling at rates up to 10GS/s, with 12-bit vertical resolution, specifically designed to deliver the most accurate acquisition and analysis of signals in the GHz range.

The high bandwidth, combined with fast sampling, allows signals to be analyzed for frequency content anywhere from DC to the Nyquist limit (half the sample rate, or up to 5GHz), making them ideal for working with extremely fast signals in laser systems, semiconductor testing, spectroscopy, reflectometry, and a wide variety of RF applications.
