MF-DIG Digitizer

The combination of the MFLI Lock-in Amplifier or MFIA Impedance Analyzer and having a Digitizer in a single box offers a wide range of measurement opportunities utilizing continuous streaming, cross-domain triggering and a segmented memory. The 2 Scope channels can display signals from the differential voltage input and the current input concurrently. The full LabOne integration allows for convenient control through the web interface and programming using any of the LabOne APIs.

MF-DIG Functional Diagram

Low-noise digitizer for voltage and current signals

The MFLI lock-in amplifier and MFIA impedance analyzer combine high-performance scientific-grade low-noise input stages for voltage and current signals with common digitizer features such as shot and continuous operation. The input ranges can be adjusted over a wide range in order to optimally match the input signals.

Using the digitizer functions of the MF-DIG Digitizer option, input signals can be monitored and measured before demodulation, with a subsequent analysis in both the time and frequency domain. With this option, the LabOne Scope is transformed from a debugging tool into a fully featured digitizer. Two digitizing channels are enabled to measure two signals simultaneously.

The MF-DIG option provides a unique current signal digitizer available from no other vendor in the market today.

High-resolution Sampling

For experiments that require sampling rates significantly below 60 MSa/s, the HD24 high-definition mode enables an enhancement of the physical 16 bit vertical resolution by averaging of consecutive samples. Depending on the number of consecutive samples that are averaged, the nominal resolution can be as high as 24 bits.
