Saleae Logic16 - 2 channels at 100MHz

Logic16 can save as many as 10B samples, letting you capture even the most elusive events. No more dealing with frustratingly small sample buffers.

Saleae Logic16 - 2 channels at 100MHz

Sample 2 channels at 100MHz, 4 channels at 50MHz, 8 channels at 25MHz, or all 16 channels at 12.5MHz.

Logic16's inputs are protected against overvoltage conditions via a high DC impedance front end and ultra-low-capacitance diode clamps. A resettable fuse protects the USB ground return line to augment the USB host's existing protection.

Saleae Logic16 - 2 channels at 100MHz

100MHz when using 2 channels, 50MHz when using 4 channels, 25MHz when using 8 channels, and 12.5MHz when using 16 channels.

Specifications Include
  • Input voltage range: -0.9V to 6V
  • Works with 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, and 5V systems
  • Input Impedance 180Kohm 7pF 
  • Construction Custom CNC machined aluminum enclosure
  • Power 95 mA Idle -115 mA when Sampling

Real-time 4x4 MIMO-OFDM Testbed

Peter Jan L├╝thi from  Switzerland has to his credit this Ph.D. Thesis - VLSI Circuits for MIMO Preprocessing.This is related to design, implementation and demonstration of suitable algorithms for MIMO wireless communication.

Real-time 4x4 MIMO-OFDM Testbed

"The latest mobile applications and the growing number of wireless users are increasing the demand for high-throughput wireless access solutions. Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology combined with orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) constitute today's most promising approach to exploit the limited radio frequency resources in a highly efficient way. "

Real-time 4x4 MIMO-OFDM Testbed

Fully operational SQRD-based MIMO preprocessing with two dual-core MMSE-SQRD ASICs in the real-time 4x4 MIMO-OFDM testbed. One MMSE-SQRD ASIC is visible in front, the second ASIC is located underneath the two RF boards.
