Designers of mil-aero software radio boards must ensure outstanding signal quality and reliability across a diverse range of harsh operating environments. Size constraints and high component density require clever solutions for thermal management, shielding, filtering, noise reduction, power dissipation, and mechanical layout. Designers deal with these challenges using strategies developed only by tackling each issue, often through trial and error.

An air-cooled XMC module uses a highly-effective nickel-plated copper band to pull heat from a large FPGA on the underside
of the board into an aluminum finned heat sink sitting in the airflow.

GateFlow FPGA Design Resources






The SystemFlow® Simulator demonstrates the Configuration, Record, Playback and Status screens to illustrate the intuitive controls and indicators of the recorder.

It also includes the SystemFlow Signal Viewer to display simulated live signals being digitized and recorded by a Pentek analog signal recorder.

SystemFlow Simulator

SystemFlow Software

The SystemFlow Signal Viewer includes a virtual oscilloscope and a virtual spectrum analyzer for signal monitoring in both the time and frequency domains.






ReadyFlow Signal Analyzer

Pentek's Signal Analyzer is a full-featured analysis tool that continuously displays live signals in both time and frequency domains. The signal analyzer is available with all SPARK development systems.






Model 8267 SPARK Development System for OpenVPX
SPARK Development System

The Model 8267 is a fully-integrated, 3U OpenVPX development system for Pentek Cobalt®, Onyx® and Flexor® software radio, data acquisition and I/O boards. It was created to save engineers the time and expense associated with developing a system that ensures optimum performance of Pentek boards.







Model 8266 SPARK PC Development System
SPARK Development System

The Model 8266 resolves the typical hardware and software compatibility obstacles inherent in new PC development platforms. All hardware is installed in appropriate slots with proper cabling, power and cooling strategies, and optimized BIOS.
