Multi-Instrument Mode now available on Moku:Pro
Moku:Pro’s multi-instrument mode lets you run multiple, research-grade instruments at the same time. These instruments can also be connected to each other to build a customized test system.
Run up to 4 instruments at the same time with 2 channels per instrument. Instruments get full, simultaneous access to all 4 analog inputs or internal inputs (1.25 GS/s of 10 bit ADCs) as well as back panel triggering. Each instrument can drive the analog outputs to support a range of different scenarios for signal measurements, generation and real-time control.
Stand alone, run together
Instruments can run independently and be hot swapped out without disturbing adjacent instruments. Mix and match stand-alone instruments with tight synchronisation as all instruments share the same ultra-stable clock.
Instruments can join forces to build sophisticated, cooperative systems. Each instrument has high-bandwidth, low-latency communication lanes to other instruments. Each instrument slot is connected by 2 real-time signal paths. Daisy chain instruments together to build sophisticated, digital signal processing pipelines.
Multi-instrument and Moku Cloud Compile unlock the ultimate in versatility
Multi-instrument mode is fully compatible with Moku Cloud Compile (MCC). MCC provides a hassle-free way for engineers to design, build and run their own algorithms on the integrated FPGA. With multi-instrument mode and Moku Cloud Compile together, users can combine their own creations with Moku:Pro’s built in instruments to aid debugging, save data and to give MCC creations a user interface.
How does it work?
Multi-instrument mode devides the large UltraSCALE+ FPGA of the Moku:Pro into five different sections, 4 for measuring instruments/measuring functions and one for the system control. Each region can be independently and dynamically reconfigured to implement its own bitstream. FPGA areas outside these regions handle the routing of the analog inputs and outputs as well as include additional routing so that data can be transferred vice versa between regions.
A story of success
Liquid Instruments’ technical management team brings extensive expertise in complex measurements with experience from the Australian National University, the Max Planck Institute, Lockheed Martin, Caltech and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Moku:Pro expands the range of software-defined solutions from Moku:Lab, a 12-in-1 measurement platform for research and, more recently, Moku:Go, a complete and portable solution for training laboratories.
