Independent High Resolution Digitizers
High quality data in both time and frequency domain, with sample rates up to 100 MS/s per channel.

Hi-Techniques uses only market leading Successive Approximation Register (SAR) type ADCs in our Synergy products. The SAR is the only ADC type found in true high-speed digital oscilloscopes as it allows for selectable filtering. The Synergy provides both filter types on all of our boards to make our systems a true general purpose data acquisition system.

Continuous Streaming to Disk at up to 1 MS/s
Synergy’s distributed processing hardware captures data directly to a Windows® internal hard drive or external PC via Gigabit Ethernet at speeds of up to 500 kS/s per channel regardless of the number of channels.

With virtually unlimited record lengths and reserve bandwidth for streaming video and audio, you never need to worry about running out of disk space. Larger capacity drives and removable RAID or USB Flash can further extend acquisition performance. Synergy can capture weeks of continuous data with annotation and storage. Data is stored directly to Windows disk, eliminating the requirement for lengthy conversion from proprietary hardware post acquisition. Other direct to disk systems can literally take hours to convert acquired data from a proprietary format to usable data.

Hi-Techniques’ ClearVU technology tracks max, min and mean values for all channels in real time, so you know in an instant if a channel goes off scale or a lead breaks. This thumbnail statistical information is also stored in the data file to provide instant review of even multi-Gigabyte files. In addition, a summary report for immediate test validation is available at a keystroke.

A full-disk circular-buffer allows for slow background recording until an event is detected at which point sample rate is accelerated to ensure maximum sample resolution only on the points of interest. Quickly mark interesting data with text or voice using the touchscreen interface or integrated microphone input. Playback your recordings to the screen or as a sound channel utilizing the PC sound interface. Scroll through long files with the convenient jog-shuttle knob, or use the Search functions to quickly locate events of interest.

The integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch allows two networks to be supported at the same time. Connect to your corporate network while simultaneously streaming data on the other Ethernet port to an external PC or data storage device.
Remote Control, Display and Storage from any Network PC
Synergy’s Ethernet architecture offers the advantage to stream high-speed data to an integrated PC or to a remote, networked PC or file server.

Dual integrated Ethernet switch allows data to be streamed through one port creating a virtual Intranet while allowing the second port to be connected to your corporate network. Whether connected to the internal PC or any remote PC, the software operates the same. Control, analyze and stream directly to the host PC or to the remote PC over Gigabit Ethernet. Data stored directly to Windows based media saves time and frustration of post-test file copying. All Synergy systems include an additional software license for remote real-time control or analysis or offline analysis on a separate PC. Multiple user or site licenses are available. No software dongles or keys required.
Mix and Match Any Combination of Mainframes and Input Modules
Mix and match input modules for even greater flexibility. Up to 4 modules can be installed in the Synergy P or Qb, 8 modules in the Synergy 8 and 16 modules in the Synergy Rack system.

Multiple Instrument Synchronization
For higher channel counts, connect multiple systems together utilizing Synergy's master/slave architecture.

All systems are synchronized within nanoseconds and start/stop simultaneously. Data can be consolidated on a single display for comparison and analysis. System clocks can be synchronized to GPS or IRIG time using the optional time stamp interface.
Unparalleled Analysis Capability
High-speed streaming data is analyzed at the full sample rate with results stored as new virtual channels or reduced to just the statistics of interest.

Your productivity depends on getting the results you need, so Aspire™ includes a wide range of analysis and data reduction tools. Unlike lower performance PC solutions which rely solely on the PC to perform block-oriented calculations after an acquisition, we put a powerful array of DSPs directly in the data stream to enable real-time cycle-by-cycle measurements and on-the-fly data reduction. High-speed streaming data is analyzed at the full sample rate with results stored as new virtual channels or reduced to just the statistics of interest.
Over 100 Built-in Analysis Functions
The most common and useful measurements don’t even require a trip to the Analysis screen.

At a single keystroke, the maximum and minimum points of your waveforms are located and measured. At the touch of an icon, a Waveform Calculator instantly pops up statistics for all channels on screen such as Max, Min, RMS and Frequency. The waveforms and numeric measurements can be copied or dragged into Excel or any other Windows program.

When your analysis needs become more complicated, choose from over 100 built-in math functions including arithmetic, statistics, trigonometry, calculus, spectral and timing. Select the waveforms of interest, your measurement and the region to analyze, and a new trace or numeric result appears. Aspire™ even remembers each operation for repeat at a keystroke. All post-process math routines are coded in tightly optimized C++ for lightning-fast operations even on multi-megasample arrays. With a click of the Auto-Repeat button, any sequence you perform once will be automatically updated every time you acquire new data.
Full Custom Analysis Capability Using Integrated Macro Editor
Aspire™ includes a full macro editor based on the open-source Python language, which can communicate with other Windows applications and hardware.

In addition to full control of Aspire™ setup, acquisition and analysis functions, Python can communicate with any other Windows applications and hardware. For example, the results of a specialized and complex calculation may be sent directly to an Excel spreadsheet, a NotePad log file, or even an analog output. Up to five user programs can be attached to buttons in the Aspire™ control panel for instant keystroke access.
