Dear labscript community,
we have found a company "Spectrum Instrumentation GmbH"  here in Germany selling fast Digitizers, AWG and digital I/O cards.
For us the most useful cards for atom experiments seem to be the AWG's (e.g. M4i.6631-x8 ) and maybe the Digital I/O cards (e.g. M2p.7515-x4 ) as digital output card or even as pseudoclock.
My question is: Has any other lab already experience with those cards implemented into labscript or thought about implementation?

Additional thoughts from what I found out until now:
From the specs these cards are comparable with e.g. SpinCore cards and in some features (Digital pulses of <10ns, memory size, more outputs) even better.
Especially regarding the DIO-cards I suppose that an implementation as pseudoclock is not possible (waits option only usable via segmented memories; looping arguments for ramps is not possible).

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions.

Thanks for information. I hope now a new mail address should be used which works better.
