GN8101B, GN8102B, GN8103B: Input Cards for Ultra-Fast Mechanical and Electrical Signals

The GN8101B, GN8102B and GN8103B data acquisition (DAQ) input cards offer eight channels each at a very high speed. With selectable anti-aliasing filtering, high bandwidth, and low-noise input amplifiers with 0.1% error, these cards transform the Genesis HighSpeed series into an extremely fast transient recorder – that too at a surprisingly low price per channel. In order to achieve the best resolution for each speed setting, they come in the following three versions:

  • GN8103B: 14-bit resolution with a sample rate of 25 MS/s
  • GN8102B: 14-bit resolution with a sample rate of 100 MS/s
  • GN8101B: 14-bit resolution with a sample rate of 250 MS/s

The enhanced resolution mode increases the input resolution for all models to a 16-bit at lower speeds. The great memory capacity of 8 GByte per board enables capturing longer events, while the digital trigger feature ensures that the data is acquired as and when the event happens.

High Signal Fidelity

  • Error 0.1%
  • 14-/15-/16-bit resolution; dynamic resolution increase
  • +/-10 mV to +/-100 V input range
  • 1 MOhm or 50 Ohm input
  • Analog anti-aliasing filter or use in Wideband
  • Digital Butterworth and Bessel signal filters

Reliable data acquisition can be achieved even in difficult environments due to high-end input stages

Reliable Acquisition

  • 8 channels for simultaneous acquisition
  • Digital triggers for each channel
  • Up to 200 triggers/s
  • 8 GByte RAM memory
  • Sample and trigger synchronization between cards and between mainframes (fiber-optical)
  • Automatic data dump to local or PC hard drive

Never miss an event again, nor lose data afterward, which is ensured by a structure built for this


  • Sweep-based acquisition or continuous streaming, even simultaneously
  • Sample rate switching on trigger
  • Live scope display
  • Extremely fast download speed, up to 400 MB/s to PC
  • DSP for real time math (at a reduced speed)
  • Additional counter / timer channels and outputs
