The Weizmann Institute of Science is one of the world's leading Multi-disciplinary Research Centers in the world, with around 2500 scientists, postdoctoral fellows, PhD and M.Sc. students, and scientific, technical, and administrative staff working at the Institute. Researchers of this institute have received many outstanding awards and honors such as Nobel prizes, Fields Medal, etc. With numerous invention patents, the Weizmann Institute of Science receives the highest technology transfer revenue in the world ($35 billion a year)

The study of Professor Grover and his research group in Weizmann Institute requires the use of a multi-channel and high-accuracy Phase-Locked Amplifying Technology in a synchronous and distributed Parallel method. After thorough communication with our engineers, researchers of the Weizmann Institute believe that SINE Scientific Instruments can provide them with the best technology solution. Hence, they decide to sign a contract with SINE Scientific Instruments and indicate that they are willing to introduce this technology to international peers.


Figure 1.The design of multi-channel synchronous measurement technology

In the design of multi-channel synchronous measurement technology, SINE Scientific Instruments use its unique USB2.0 data collector base on FPGA synchronous processing technique, which enables the synchronized data transmission among 6 duel-channel lock-in amplifier OE1022D (equivalent to collecting data from 12 SR830 synchronously with the time precision of 1ms). If work with the 8 channels lock-in amplifier of our company, this technology can collect data from up to 64 channels simultaneously (USB3.0 is required in the case of 64 channels).OE1022D can also perform some special function of harmonics measurements, such as demodulating combined frequency signal in the form of a*f1+b*f2 and measuring auxiliary AD, sync signal and combinations thereof. This technique is also applied in superconducting, quantum computer and other fields.
