DRS4 Evaluation Board - Paul Scherrer Institut

Ever wanted to develop a Professional High Speed DAQ or a Storage Oscilloscope or even a High Speed Communications grade Logic Analyzer. Here is a front end Analog Mixed Chip with Eval Board.

You could make a High Speed Test Instrument and probably build a Android tablet front end. How would a 200 M Hz Oscilloscope look on you 10 inch tablet. You will float in the clouds.

- delabs

The DRS chip is a full custom Integrated Circuit developed at PSI, Switzerland. It contains a switched capacitor array (SCA) with 1024 cells, capable of digitizing eight analog signals with high speed (6 GSPS) and high accuracy (11.5 bit SNR) on a single chip.

DRS4 Evaluation Board - Paul Scherrer Institut
DRS4 Evaluation Board - Paul Scherrer Institut

By using channel cascading, we can configure this board with 2048 bins for each channel at the expense of a lower analog bandwidth of about 500 MHz. The on-board comparators enables the board to do a self-triggering on a programmed level of any of the input channels or logical combination of channels, much like an oscilloscope.

Highlights of Board with One DRS4 chip
  • Four 50-Ohm terminated input channels with SMA connectors
  • Active input buffers which result in an analog bandwidth of 700 MHz (-3dB).
  • One AD9245 ADC to digitize signals from the DRS4 chip
  • One Xilinx Spartan 3 FPGA for readout control
  • A 16-bit DAC to generate all on-board control voltages
  • A serial EEPROM containing serial number and calibration information
  • Internal trigger with user-defined thresholds on any of the four channes.

Running BitScope on Raspberry Pi

Create a complete stand-alone mixed signal oscilloscope, logic analyzer, spectrum analyzer and waveform generator. This tiny BitScope is USB powered by the Raspberry Pi and can be used with BitScope DSO which runs directly on the Raspberry Pi.

Running BitScope on Raspberry Pi

BitScope 10 is very low power. Unlike a lot of other gear, this means you don't need a USB hub. Simply connect directly to the Raspberry Pi, add a monitor and mouse, and you're good to go.

Running BitScope on Raspberry Pi

Breadboard One - A typical Mixed Signal Circuit

The first BitScope Ed project, a simple mixed signal circuit which explains the key elements of modern mixed signal systems. Electronic Projects Lab for Raspberry Pi based on Breadboard One to test the circuit.

This arrangement provides the power supply, waveform generator, clock generator. Even tools like a frequency meter or volt/Amp meter. Connections made via its Smart POD Interface. Breadboard One connects directly but logic probes or analog probes like DP01 can be used too. Some BitScopes have BNC inputs for use with standard oscilloscope probes.
