OEM Spectrometers: AS-7010 Microprocessor Board

The AS-7010 is the all new electronic platform and the base for Avantes’ future spectrometer models.
It is equipped with a powerfull Xilinx Zynq 7010 microprocessor. It combines the software programmability of a processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA, resulting in unrivalled levels of system performance and flexibility.The generous 100 Mpixel memory enables onboard storage of spectra and custom programming. As it is equipped with two different AD convertors, optimal performance for each detector type is assured.

The AS-7010 comes with the ability of 2 communication ports: high-speed USB3.0 and GigaEthernet.
Also on board is the HD26 digital I/O connector with 13 programmable digital I/O ports, 2 analog out ports and 2 analog in ports. The connector is compatible with the AS-5216 I/O connector.
