New from Berkeley Nucleonics, the Model 1150 UF Transient Recorder / Digitizer allows data acquisition with full signal digitizing at very fast speeds. The Model 1150 records single shot pulses at widths down to 50 picoseconds with 13-Bit amplitude resolution. Additional useful features to the digitizer are an input for timing fiducials and a large front panel display for review. The Ethernet interface allows both local and remote control all features, from setup and digitizing to review of results. As such it conveniently fits both laboratory and automatic test applications.

The model 1150 uses a scan conversion principle. The digitizer records the signal in fast analog memory (screen of a CRT). Then it reads it more slowly (CCD) in order to digitize it and store it in a video memory. The signal is extracted from the video memory through image processing and defect correction.

The acquired waveform can be read via the LAN interface and exported to standard signal analysis tools.
