Pentek Expands Product Line with Digital Downconverter for Wideband Radar and SDR Applications

Pentek Expands Product Line with Digital Downconverter for Wideband Radar and SDR Applications

  • 3.6 GHz data acquisition with 12-bit resolution
  • Single- and dual-channel operation with multi-board synchronization
  • Digital downconverter delivers up to 360 MHz baseband output bandwidths
  • 2 GB deep on-board memory and high-speed serial I/O
  • Available in COTS and rugged XMC, VPX, cPCI and PCIe

The Model 71641, capable of digitizing one 12-bit channel at 3.6 GHz, or two channels at 1.8 GHz, comes preconfigured with a programmable one- or two-channel DDC loaded into the onboard Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA.

The complex DDC IP core of the Model 71641 is preconfigured and characterized for a turn-key, out-of-the-box solution. The new module is ideal for wideband radar and software defined radio applications.

Rodger Hosking, Vice President of Pentek, Inc. "The Model 71641 is designed to acquire very wide bandwidth radar and communications signals so they can be efficiently delivered and processed," said Rodger Hosking, vice president and co-founder of Pentek.

"An extraordinary amount of Pentek engineering went into making this DDC IP core easy to use, even at these extreme data rates," he added.
