SIS3316 16 Channel VME Digitizer Family

vertical bar

The SIS3316 digitizer family comprises two cards

SIS3316-125-16 16 channel 125 MSPS 16-bit

SIS3316-250-14 16 channel 250 MSPS 14-bit

Currently we are suffering from the uncertainty in the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA supply situation. We are out of SIS3316 boards and can not start a new production run. An Artix-7 based SIS3316-2 redesign is under way. We do not have a firm date for the availability of first cards yet.

    With the SIS3316 you have the option to use an Ethernet SFP or an optical SFP medium to implement non VME readout.
