Top Tips for Selecting Real-Time Embedded System Products

by Rodger Hosking, Vice President, Pentek

Deployed systems for military and defense applications require a specialized class of electronic components from vendors that can support the special needs of embedded systems integrators. Of course, the hardware products must operate across a wide range of operating modes and environments to deliver performance levels meeting critical objectives for deployed warfighting equipment. But other factors may be even more important.

Top Tips for Selecting Real-Time Embedded System Products

Because each project is unique, good system development tools are essential for systems integrators to deliver operational systems to their final customers as efficiently and effectively as possible. The vendors of these hardware and software products must help customers choose the most appropriate products, support them during development, and then offer life cycle management solutions for continued product availability.

By following some key recommendations in making product and vendor choices, integrators can avoid risks and significantly reduce time in their development efforts.

Pentek Enhances Navigator Design Suite for the RFSoC Quartz Architecture

Navigator Design Suite

Pentek has introduced several enhancements to its Navigator® Design Suite for the Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC. New IP expands Pentek's existing IP library to over 140 cores for FPGA development on its Quartz® Architecture platform.

Pentek's Navigator Design Suite includes the Navigator® FDK (FPGA Design Kit) for integrating custom IP into Pentek factory-shipped designs and the Navigator® BSP (Board Support Package) for creating host applications.

"The combination of the Navigator Design Suite and Quartz Architecture deliver some of the highest performance RFSoC FPGA designs available today," said Robert Sgandurra, director of Product Management. "These enhancements demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with the best tools possible to optimize our hardware for their applications."

Extended Support for the Quartz Family of RFSoC

Pentek's family of Quartz products based on Xilinx's RFSoC deliver an unprecedented amount of functionality in a single board. Both the Navigator FDK and the BSP have been extended to support this functionality.

2019 MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) Conference Awards

Pentek's Navigator Design Suite for Quartz was a 4-Star "Best in Show" Winner at the recent IMS Conference!
