The Spectrum M2p.65xx series arbitrary waveform generators are 16-bit digital to analog converters. There are versions with 1, 2, 4 and 8 channels, with sample rates up to 125MS/sec. Optional are the cards with the extra high output voltage up to 12V (in 1Mohm).
Up to 16 cards can be synchronized in one system. Synchronization with the analog data acquisition cards of the M2p series is also possible. Optionally 4 or 20 synchronized digital channels are available.

All cards of the M2p.65xx series have up to 1GSample on board memory. In FIFO mode it is also possible to stream data from the PC memory to the memory of the M2p.65xx card.

All Spectrum arbitrary waveform charts also have features such as :

– Single-Shot
– Walk
– FIFO fashion
– Multiple replay (segmented memory)
– Gated replay
– Sequence replay

For applications that require “real time” signal processing Spectrum has developed the SCAPP option.
SCAPP stands for Spectrum CUDA Access for Parallel Processing which creates the possibility to process information from the Spectrum digitizers, Digital I/O cards and Arbitrary Waveform generators with a CUDA (multi core processing) board. This makes complicated DSP processing much easier and special operations can now be performed by everyone.

Software support

The M2p.65xx cards also come with an extensive package of software support.
Drivers for Windows and Linux operating systems (32 bit and 64 bit) are included.
Example programs and drivers for C/C++, LabVIEW (Windows), MATLAB (Windows and Linux), LabWindows/CVI, IVI, .NET, Delphi, Visual Basic and Python are available.
A basic license of the Spectrum software SBench 6 and SPEasy generator is included as standard. SBench6-Pro and a multi software license are options.

For arbitrary waveform generators with a higher sample rate, please refer to Spectrum’s M4i.66xx-x8 charts.
