What Sensor Inputs are Possible?

BittWare’s Data Capture and Direct Data Recorder reference designs are based on a network data capture design using the 250-SoC accelerator card. This is a dual 100GbE product, however BittWare has a rich portfolio of other FPGA cards allowing data ingress from other sensor sources. Examples include: digital I/O, multi-channel RF ADC and video. Please contact BittWare for details.
