Accelerating 5G Product Development by Using a COTS-Based SDR System for the Development Platform

by Bob Muro, Application Specialist, Pentek

Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Software Defined Radio (SDR) products have been traditionally used for military radar and communication applications because of their high performance and design flexibility. The latest SDR products offer solutions with integrated I/O, ARM processors, and large FPGAs that include intellectual property (IP) for accessing, routing, and processing digital data. Combining these attributes with superior signal integrity, phase-coherent sampling, and multi-channel transceivers, a COTS SDR system is an ideal choice for your 5G development platform.

Accelerating 5G Product Development by Using a COTS-Based SDR System for the Development Platform


This article is designed to familiarize a new user about Software Defined Radio in a multi-purpose COTS platform that can reduce the time-to-market of your 5G products.



Military Embedded Systems Chose Pentek as a 4-Star "Best in Show" Winner at the recent AOC Conference

Radar & EW Category Winner: Model 6001 RFSoC Quartz eXpress Module
Model 6001

Pentek's new QuartzXM SoM speeds custom deployment of RFSoC in SWaP critical environments. Measuring only 2.5 by 4 inches, the QuartzXM Model 6001 includes all of the circuitry needed to maximize the performance of the RFSoC.

The Model 6001 can be housed on the Pentek 3U VPX Model 5950 or it can be deployed on a custom carrier. Pentek's complete design kit ensures success for customers building their own carrier.

Development Tactics and Techniques for Small Form Factor RF Signal Recorders

Development Tactics and Techniques for Small Form Factor RF Signal Recorders

This white paper describes engineering considerations and design techniques used to develop small form factor rugged recorders that can handle extremely high data rates associated with very wide bandwidth RF signal recording.

It is intended to provide engineers with ideas on how to bring this capability into confined and often extreme environments while focusing on military specification compliance, SWaP and ease of use with confidence.
