High-Speed Data Acquisition Digitizers

Drawcom’s high-speed digitizers maximize the quality of captured wideband signals, in terms of signal-to-noise ratio and spurious-free dynamic range, over a very wide frequency bandwidth.  What separates Drawcom’s digitizers from any other similar product in the industry is the ability to acquire and transfer data simultaneously with no breaks in the analog record at sustained high-speed data rates.
