10V Amplifier module option

10Vamp_board (3K) This amplifier option is available in 1, 2 or 4 channel configurations and fits alongside the main board in a second slot, this separate card design ensuring good heat dissipation. The high 30MHz bandwidth of these amplifiers allows use with all generators, ranging from the entrance-version with 20 MSamples/sec, up to the high-end version with 125 MSamples/sec operating through 25 MHz output filters. When using high impedance termination the full output swing of 10 V is available, (5 V when used with 50 ohm termination). Available in PCI-Express, PCI, PXI and cPCI (3U) versions.
