MICS amplifiers

Multi Channel Signal (MICS) amplifiers are advanced amplifiers for industrial and research instrumentation. Main features include simultaneous amplification of multiple analog signals, calibrated gains and offsets, live signal mixing and automatic control functions. A range of auxiliary features are included for ease of integration with solid-state detectors, including supply of power and biasing voltage. MICS amplifiers are available in various configurations of four sets of differential inputs/outputs, as well as two auxiliary inputs for external signals. Control of all settings is made over standard USB 2.0 interface, including dedicated DLL library and control app for Microsoft Windows.

All stages of amplification are calibrated in factory, as required for a range of quantitative techniques.
