Monona, Wisconsin - Apex Embedded Systems, has announced the release of the Stratus-X-ND PC/104 card which enables high-speed data acquisition without interrupts. Designed for extreme duty operation (from -40C to +85C), the card is suitable for use by OEMs in medical, military, aerospace, scientific and communications applications where Commercial-Off-The-shelf (COTs) solutions are necessary.The card provides a large one mega-sample buffer to eliminate interrupt latency issues and enable embedded high-speed transient data recording for Linux and Windows applications. In addition, multi-card software legacy compatibility modes are provided for existing third party software driver support. The Stratus-X-ND is a 16-channel analog input card with 16-bit resolution and a large one mega-sample buffer. The one mega-sample buffer offers continuous high-speed sampling without loss of data. Maximum data sampling rate is 200,000 samples per second. Dual 16-bit analog outputs are optionally available.The Stratus-X-ND analog inputs are low-noise, low-drift and provide wide programmable input voltage ranges. A hardware moving average filter is provided for additional noise reduction with no software overhead. The Stratus-X-ND provides multi-card software legacy compatibility modes, thus offering a drop-in solution for existing developed software and/or drivers.About Apex Embedded SystemsApex Embedded Systems, with corporate headquarters located in Monona, Wisconsin, and founded in 1997, is a manufacture of robust PC/104 boards.
