    About AlazarTech

    AlazarTech, headquartered in a suburb of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, provides high performance, low cost PC Based Instruments and software for customers involved in building OEM products, manufacturing test systems and research and development.

    AlazarTech’s design team consists of engineers who pioneered PC-based instrumentation in the 1980s.

    While AlazarTech manufactures some of the fastest PCI and PCI Express digitizers on the market, speed alone is not the differentiating factor.  AlazarTech concentrates on providing usability features for its PCI and PCI Express digitizers that make them very easy to integrate into real-world OEM applications such as ultrasonic testing, medical imaging and radar signal analysis.

    The key differentiation between AlazarTech products and the rest of the industry is AlazarTech’s Dual-Port Memory technology, which enables OEMs to create systems that can capture, analyze and store data in real time. 

    Customers can use AlazarTech products not only for R&D, but also deploy them in the field.  Competitive products use single-port memory, forcing customers to stop acquisition in order to read data, thereby limiting their usefulness to R&D and algorithm development.

    AlazarTech also works with selected OEMs to customize its products based on customer requirements.

    The company's line of ATS PCI and PCI Express digitizers have been recognized by leading European, Asian and North American OEMs as being superior in quality to other devices on the market.

    The company's products have found applications in industries such as medical imaging, metal inspection, defense, automotive and semiconductor test.

    AlazarTech sells its products directly in North America, and internationally through a distribution network.
