DT9862 isolated, high-speed USB data acquisition module. The DT9862 provides isolated, high-speed USB data acquisition at throughput rates up to 10 MHz. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The DT9862 from Data Translation features isolated, high-speed USB data acquisition at throughput rates up to 10 MHz. When two A/D channels are sampled simultaneously, both channels can acquire data at 10 MHz using burst sampling or at 5 MHz continuously. The only limit on throughput is the USB 2.0 bus speed, which has been optimized for the DT9862 to over 25 MB/s. Each analog input channel has its own separate A/D converter eliminating phase shift between each channel—a problem with multiplexed architectures where all inputs share one common A/D converter. As a result, the DT9862 series can correlate measurements instantly. This overall throughput breakthrough represents a five-times increase in speed for the industry. The DT9862 module was developed and designed in direct response to customers requiring ultra-high-speed instantaneous sampling. Ideal applications are fast thermal analysis, triangular spotting of downed black boxes, and high-speed ultrasound imaging that need fast results.
