DRS4 Chip and DRS4 Evaluation Board Functional and Performance Tests

Radec has carried out functional and performance tests of the DRS4 Chips and DRS4 Evaluation Boards.

DRS4 has been developed at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), Villigen, Switzerland.


The chip is a full PSI custom Integrated Circuit. It contains a switched capacitor array (SCA) with 1024 cells, capable of digitizing eight analog signals with high speed  as of 6 GSPS (6x10^9 samples per second) and high accuracy (11.5 bit SNR)

on a single chip.

DRS4 Evaluation Board utilizes one DRS4 chip controlled by FPGA and has full functionality of 4-input digital scope with PC (Windows/Linux/Mac).
