The WFD20 is a 20 bit Waveform Digitizer for medium-speed / high resolution waveform capturing and analyzing. The module combines an excellent dynamic performance with a very high DC accuracy.
The module features a fully differential input path to reduce common-mode level disturbances. If the internal DC-offset voltage source is used, the negative input can still be used as a GND Sense input, so the DC performance won’t be compromised due to ground currents.
The module has 8 input ranges from 0.544Vpp to 8.16Vpp, which allows easy adaptation to a wide range of Unit Under Test output voltages.
A filter-bank with 3 Low Pass filters (40kHz, 250kHz and 800kHz) provide excellent signal conditioning to obtain the best result in dynamic performance: low noise and anti-aliasing.
The special combination of four 18 bit ADCs to a 20 bit converter gives an excellent SNR and linearity and a resolution down to 0.52µV. With 4M-word (12M-byte) of memory a large number of samples can be captured.
All these features ensure a very accurate result when performing analog measurements. The unit is very suitable for testing DAC linearity and dynamic performance.
