Flexible research, faster development, scalable in an instant
Welcome to the next generation of test. Moku:Pro delivers both performance and flexibility through sophisticated FPGA-based architecture, a high-bandwidth, low noise analog front end, and robust networking and storage. All of the instruments you need are available in an instant without compromising performance for flexibility. An innovative hybrid front-end design performs frequency-dependent signal blending from multiple ADCs, delivering exceptional noise performance from acoustic to radio frequencies. With more than 10 instruments on one hardware platform, engineers and researchers can streamline their test benches or even bring the lab home with them.
Moku:Pro is the most advanced system from the Moku suite of software defined instrument platforms. Harnessing the power of the FPGA combined with a high-quality analog front-end, Moku:Pro is able to host multiple instruments on a single hardware platform without sacrificing specs or precision. This approach to test equipment makes it possible to scale and expand the scope of research easily. With Moku:Pro, researchers and engineers already have the right tool for the job.
Blended ADCs for industry-leading noise performance
In test and measurement, flexibility has typically demanded tradeoffs in performance. We overcome these tradeoffs by using signals from a 5 GSa/s, 10-bit ADC and a 10 MSa/s, 18-bit ADC in a patented blending scheme to deliver a low noise floor and high dynamic range from 10 Hz to 600 MHz. This is achieved through a digital crossover network consisting of balanced high- and low-pass filters that implement real-time blending of the dual ADC data streams.

By integrating test bench essentials like an oscilloscope, waveform generator, and more into a single hardware platform, Moku:Pro enables engineering teams to work from home. With a small footprint, low power consumption at 115 W, and a suite of core test instruments, pivoting to remote work has never been easier.
Now available: Multi-instrument Mode
Moku:Pro’s multi-instrument mode lets you run multiple instruments at the same time and lets you connect these instruments to each other to build a customised test system.
Instruments running in this mode can be chained together to build sophisticated signal-processing pipelines. Advanced users can even drop in custom features designed in Moku Cloud Compile, giving them more flexibility than ever before.
Connections to the analog inputs, analog outputs, and adjacent instruments are run-time configurable for instant gratification. Your Moku:Pro is now even more powerful.
Now available: Moku Cloud Compile
Advanced users can access Moku:Pro’s FPGA to implement custom digital signal processing by writing their own VHDL code. This cloud-based tool is accessed directly from a browser, allowing you to develop, compile and deploy custom algorithms to your Moku:Pro without a single software download.
Exclusively available with Multi-instrument mode, your custom code can work together with any of Moku:Pro’s professional-grade instruments.

Input voltage noise
Input voltage noise describes the noise floor of the analog inputs and is represented as an amplitude spectral density (magnitude of input voltage noise at different frequencies normalized to a 1 Hz bandwidth). Input voltage noise is a key specification for a variety of instruments including lock-in amplifiers, spectrum analyzers, and oscilloscopes as it can limit the signal-to-noise ration (SNR) in weak-signal applications.
In this figure, you can see the noise of 30 nV√Hz at 100 Hz and it remains low across the entire frequency range.
Our FPGA algorithms automatically and intelligently blend the high-speed and low-speed signals from the 10-bit and 18-bit ADCs to optimize noise performance across the entire frequency range.
Rather than simply focusing on minimizing overall noise, the filtering network is designed in a way that preserves a unity-gain frequency response for the signal.
