PRESS RELEASE

Introducing the AXSUN 500MSPS DAQ Board

To meet the performance needs of next-generation Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) systems, Axsun Technologies introduces a high speed 12-bit Data Acquisition board compatible with Axsun’s high performance swept laser OCT Engine products.

Product Description
The AXSUN DAQ board has a 12-bit 500 MSPs front end, configurable with either an external k-trigger, or an internal trigger, and a base Camera Link® (CL) interface to transmit OCT spectral data to your image processing electronics. The Axsun CL-DAQ card is designed to interface seamlessly with commercial CL Frame Grabbers and provide a straightforward Swept Source upgrade path to Camera based OCT systems.

Convenience and Small Form Factor
The Axsun high speed DAQ board resides in a compact (~114 x 177 x 13 mm) package and is straightforward to integrate with the Axsun Swept Source Engine. The single DC supply, and USB interface allow the user to begin collecting data in a matter of minutes.
