vDAQ

A revolution in microscope control. Powered By ScanImage®

The brand new vDAQ™ is an all in one data acquisition card for microscope control with ScanImage®. It controls Galvos, resonant scanners, Pockels cells, Piezo objective positioners, shutters and much more. It greatly simplifies the wiring complexity of microscopes by eliminating the need for additional 3rd party DAQ hardware.  The vDAQ™ is a lot of card for the money.

vDAQ™ Advantages

Newest Xilinx FPGA

The Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA is state of the art and provides greater capacity for real time image processing and closed loop experiments.  The vDAQ™ comes standard with 4 GB of DRAM giving you more processing power.

Flexible and Fast IO

4-channel 125 MHz data acquisition at a 2-channel price with 4 GB/sec data transfer rates to the host computer.  All analog inputs and outputs are independent and FPGA controlled.

Synchronize with Any Clock

Unlike other DAQ hardware, the vDAQ™ can be synchronized with any external clock and it can produce its own internal clock signals as well. Of course it supports all advanced ScanImage® trigger capabilities.

Microscope Compatibility

A Single Breakout Box

vDAQ breakout

You asked for simpler wiring diagrams!  Now you can achieve it with the vDAQ™ and a single breakout box in a slick 2U 19 inch rack mount format.  The breakout box and connecting cable are included with the vDAQ™.
