We are wanting to perform decay measurements of a signal that can range from 1.5V to 0V. We are looking at the AD9625-2.0 evaluation board to measure the decay at greater than 1 GS/sec. Since nobody in our group is too familiar with high speed data acquisition devices, can someone help with all the hardware needed to make a decay measurement with nanosecond resolution? From what I've seen in the documentation, an FPGA is needed to read and store the data at that fast of a rate. Then, a computer can read the data from the FPGA. Is anything else needed?
Thank you in advance for your help.
