Acquisition System

At the heart of the GSA 6000 system are state of the art high-speed real-time analog to digital converter ASICs supplied by Keysight, which provide high speed waveform capture.  The patented2 digital hardware-accelerated frequency response equalization further improves the signal fidelity and effective number of bits.

At the maximum sampling rate of 40 Gsamples/sec (25 psec per point), the GSA 6000 can capture up to 1.6 seconds of a real-time waveform into its ultra-long acquisition memory –  up to 64 Gpoints for single channel configuration.

Trigger

The GSA 6000 features a digital processing trigger.  This feature makes use of the real-time hardware waveform processing capability and allows you to define trigger parameters based on the actual waveform data.  Trigger on any input channel or one of two external trigger source inputs is provided.   Trigger conditions are set using the GSA 6000 Signal Display software tool or from your application.

 

External Clock and I/O

The GSA 6000 features a 1 GHz external clock input, which can be used in place of the internal ADC clock.  external clock io

A 50 MHz sync reference input and output provides the means by which multiple GSA 6000 units can be synchronized together to perform synchronous acquisition with a high accuracy of sample alignment between units.

Additionally, a standard 10 MHz clock input is provided for synchronization of GSA 6000 with other equipment in large measurement installations.

Several test outputs are available for custom application support and system integration.

GSA 6000 provides a programmable calibrator output with a variety of test signals.  You can connect this calibrator to any input channel and run an automatic calibration routine to ensure accurate operation of the instrument.

 

PCI Express Host Computer Interface

pci expressThe GSA 6000 provides PCI Express Gen 2 x8 interface to the host computer running the GSA 6000 control software.  The PCI Express bridge card installs in the host computer, and a standard PCI Express x8 cable connects the GSA 6000 to the computer.  High speed waveform transfer with sustained data rates up to 2.4 GByte/sec is possible from this port back to the host computer.

GSA 6000 can be ordered with optional PCI Express Gen 2 x16 interface in addition to the standard x8 interface. The x16 interface allows for data transfer rates of up to 6.4 GByte/sec, bringing the combined data transfer rate up to 8.8 GByte/s3.

The fast PCI Express link ensures that the communication to computer will not be a bottleneck for your application.

Processing Overview and Capabilities

GSA 6000 provides various options for signal processing: FPGA, GPU, and CPU-based processing.

FPGA-based Processing

At the heart of the GSA 6000 are four industry-leading Altera StratixTM IV FPGA’s. These core processing elements combined with Guzik’s implementation of customer-specified measurement algorithms provide end users with a truly tailored measurement solution where speed and throughput count. Once processed, results can be streamed via the GSA’s PCI Express interface to a host computer at sustained data rates up to 8.8 Gbyte/sec.  altera fpga processing

The FPGA-based processor combined with Guzik’s custom engineering capabilities provides you with the possibility to perform digital signal processing directly in GSA prior to sending waveform data out to computer.  Many applications may require only processed results to be sent to the host computer rather than raw waveform data.  Guzik will work directly with customers to implement custom processing capabilities drawing from years of experience in waveform analysis.  Channel equalization, filtering, FFT, DFT, min/max, averaging, and parameter calculations among others are all available along with applications-specific requests.  Guzik can provide custom services after a technical consultation regarding the specific application and required processing.

The combined FPGA processing resources are listed in the table below:

GPU-based Processing

nvidia GPU based processingGeneral-purpose computation on graphic hardware allows developers to reuse the computational algorithms available for GPU or develop their own algorithms on CUDA C or OpenCL.  GSA 6000 is shipped with NVidia® GeForce GTX 5704 GPU.  It is possible to use any NVidia® GPU with computing capability 2.0 or higher, if its power requirements are satisfied by the host computer power supply.

4 Current configuration.  More powerful GPU cards may be shipped in the future

CPU-based Processing

In addition to FPGA-based and GPU-based computation, customers have an option to perform signal processing using a computer CPU.  intel Multi-core processing libraries, such as OpenMP, allow utilizing full power of modern 12-core CPU computers. Once more powerful computers with more cores are released, you can upgrade your computer keeping your existing signal analyzer. PCI Express data transfer rate of 8.8 GByte/s is sufficient to accommodate future computer and GPU generations for years to come, preserving your investment in digitizer.

 

Ultra-fast GPU-based FFT Measurements

GSA 6000 performs frequency domain analysis using the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) performed on GPU. Single NVIDIA® Tesla GPU card performs FFT calculations at a 2.5 GSPS processing speed.  This means, for example, that if you collect data at 10 GSPS for 100 µs, process in 400 µs, you will get the full signal spectrum up to 5 GHz with resolution bandwidth 10 kHz – 500,000 spectral lines – in less than 0.5 ms.

 

ADC 6000 Module Designed for AXIe Standard

ADC 6000 board is designed in AXIe standard form factor. There are two assembly configurations for the ADC 6000:axie

  • Standalone configuration for Guzik 2U chassis.
  • AXIe configuration, designed for Keysight Technologies. This configuration can be used in an industry standard AXIe chassis together with other instruments, such as Keysight M8190A 12 GSPS Arbitrary Waveform Generator, and other modular instruments.

 

Signal Connection and Probing

signal connection and probingFor applications that require single ended or differential probing, Guzik recommends the Keysight InfiniiMax series of probing tools for use with the GSA 6000 Series.  Detailed selection information can be found at the following link, http://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/5968-7141EN.pdf?id=1000078568:epsg:dow.  A wide variety of probe solutions up to 13 GHz in bandwidth can be purchased directly from Guzik.

The Keysight InfiniiMax Series5 features a variety of probe amplifier and body styles.

The interface to the GSA 6000’s input connector is the Keysight N1022A Probe Adapter with an additional cable adapter pictured below.

GSA Toolkit Software

To control the GSA 6000 Guzik provides a GSA Toolkit, which includes two software components:

  1. GSA SDK – software development kit to create your custom standalone applications for GSA or to integrate GSA into your existing software environment; please refer to “Guzik Signal Analyzer Software Development Kit User’s Guide” document P/N 02-107544 for more details.
  2. Signal Display application designed for easy instrument setup, waveform acquisition and visualization. Signal Display provides oscilloscope-like graphical user interface to display multiple signal waveforms, control acquisition parameters (sampling rate, duration, trigger settings, etc), and perform multiple trigger (multi-sector) acquisitions. The application allows for saving acquired signals to files for importing into EXCEL, MATLAB or other computational and analysis programs. You can load and display signals from files in various formats, including the previously saved waveforms. One of the useful features of Signal Display is tracking (monitoring) acquired signals during GSA SDK-based application execution or WITE32 digital test execution.  Please refer to “Signal Display User’s Guide” document P/N 02-107548 for more details.
