The use of software radio technology has spread to almost every commercial, consumer, government, industrial, and military platform across the entire radio frequency spectrum during the technology's 25-year lifespan.
Innovations in data converter technology, DSP devices, system interconnects, processors, software, design tools, and packaging techniques have improved performance levels and reduced the size, weight, and power consumption of software radio systems.

Pentek continues to demonstrate expertise with Xilinx devices and implementation techniques and consistently delivers high-quality products and services utilizing Xilinx programmable platforms. As a certified member of Xilinx's Alliance Program, Pentek will have early access to Xilinx's technology road map.
It's difficult for some people to imagine what technology was like in 1986 during the time period in which a 6 MHz computer with a 20 MB hard drive was state-of-the-art – and processing data would take hours.
We can all fully appreciate where technology is today: 1,000 times faster – and in milliseconds processing is complete!
Here at Pentek, we are proud to have witnessed, discovered, optimized, and innovated all of the new technology over the past 30 years. We thank you for your support as we continue to thrive and provide you with high-performance products needed for your leading-edge data acquisition, digital signal processing, and software radio applications.
"Pentek takes pride in listening to its customers and creating new products to meet their needs. We promise an atmosphere of freedom and creativity among our engineers, so they can design industry-leading products to satisfy the most demanding applications. This has been the key to our success through the years."

Pentek's SystemFlow® Software provides the tools necessary to analyze and record RF signals without complex configuration or programming. A simple and intuitive GUI allows for out-of-the-box operation of any Talon Recording System with point and click parameter selection, simple profile creation, and automatic file naming.
The SystemFlow Signal Viewer provides a virtual oscilloscope, virtual spectrum analyzer, and spectrogram display prior to, during and after a recording session.
The Talon RTR 2729A provides the performance of a rackmount recorder in a lightweight portable package. With a 3.6 GHz 12-bit A/D, built-in digital downconversion, and up to 30 TB of SSD storage, this portable recorder allows users to capture extremely wide bandwidth signals in real time for hours.
In this 5 1/2 minute video, Chris Tojeira, Recording Systems Director, explains the key features of the Talon 2729A, including the removable storage drives and system drive.
