I am guessing this is the first one because of the "12AD". I'll keep digging for info.
Quote from: "bobo68"And why does it have the Burr-Brown DACs if it is only meant to do A/D conversions?
QuoteI spoke with Scott D. of Dazzl yesterday, here are the full details on the board and what else is available.Dazzl 16 channel A/D Board.Specs: - 16 inputs - 200 kHz total sampling rate (by specification-- apparently, it can be driven faster) - 12 bits resolution (14 bits available at a lower speed) - Self installing software (makefile does the intsall) - 1.0 and 2.0 kernel drivers included - Parallel port included on the boardinput specs: - very accurate-- low chatter, high per sample and long run accuracy. - Gurantee sample length, rate, start and end within 1 sample - Programmable triggers; - software (internal) and hardware (external) trigger support. - pre, post, and mid triggering supported.Availability: NOW. The board is in production and shipping. Cash is much preferred; PO's will be indefinitely delayed right now. This will change in the future, but the size of the board production part of the company is extremely small (as is the company)-- a little history:Scott started the board project because he needed a research tool for his neurophysiology studies-- he picked up an absolute genius of a hardware designer and built the board, which, over time, became a real product. The quality of standards is very high, the future is bright, but the cash flow is not large now; Scott can't afford to float PO's right now.Price: Corporate - $2950, Educational - $1950Misc: - support is currently limited due to time. This will be changing in the future. - source code is available on a special case basis. Five sample acquisition programs available. Currently no interface other than the kernel driver. I will be implementing GUI type stuff in the future, look for a release around mid-summer at latest. - A couple of third party apps are going to support the board directly. - 2 boards in a machine running simultaneously works well. - not currently compatible with 040 products-- will be as soon as Scott has an 040 board in hand. Extensions: - 144 channel multiplexer: gives 144 channels at 1 to 2 kHz sampling rate per channel. Ideal for medical work, automation, and other tasks. - 256 channels is entirely possible; implementation requires a few orders (see below)Future Directions: - additional features can be added that will affect the price.
