An FPGA-based multichannel digital downconverter is presented in this issue’s feature article. The design achieves impressive specs and can be factory-installed in Pentek products. More in the feature article.
"FPGAs can replace traditional ASIC digital downconverters in high channel-count software radios. Their inherent parallelism allows multiple receiver channels per chip, and available COTS IP cores can be used to realize up to 256 independently controlled channels in a Xilinx Virtex-family FPGA."
