New Wideband Tunable RF-to-Digital Transceiver - Spectrum

Spectrum to Demonstrate New Wideband Tunable RF-to-Digital Transceiver and High-Performance PC-Based Signal Processing Platform at SDR'10 - Spectrum will showcase the RF-4902, a 3U wideband, frequency agile RF tuner and exciter, and the SDR-2010, a pre-integrated PC-based signal processing system, at this year’s Wireless Innovation Forum SDR ’10 Conference in Washington, D.C. starting November 30th.

RF-4902 3U wideband frequency RF tuner and exciter

Spectrum Signal Processing by Vecima (“Spectrum”), trusted supplier of embedded computing and processing solutions for more than 20 years, today announced they will demonstrate two new high-performance signal processing solutions at this year’s Wireless Innovation Forum SDR ’10 Conference in Washington, D.C. starting November 30th.

The demonstration will highlight the newest additions to Spectrum’s arsenal of production-ready, flexible signal processing solutions: the RF-4902, a 3U wideband, frequency agile RF tuner and exciter, and the SDR-2010, a pre-integrated signal processing system that combines A/D and D/A conversion and FPGA processing in an Intel-based PC.
The RF-4902 provides wideband RF capability to the mature SDR-4000 family, which is widely used in the SDR (Software Defined Radio) and ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) community. The SDR-2010 leads a growing trend among today’s ISR system providers to deploy PC-based signal processing systems that reduce cost, speed up development, and meet the increasing demands on I/O and processing required to collect and analyze data.

“At Spectrum we are expanding our product offerings to address key trends in today’s embedded computing systems,” said Douglas Fast, President of Spectrum. “At SDR’10, we will demonstrate first-hand the capabilities of these new products. The RF-4902 enhances the capabilities of our widely-used SDR-4000 platform; while the SDR-2010 has already shipped to key defense customers to meet mission-critical needs with a standard PC-based platform.”

SDR ’10 is the leading technical conference and product exposition dedicated to the advancement of reconfigurable radio technologies from research through deployment. The conference takes place in Washington, D.C. this November 30th to December 3rd.

The RF-4902 is designed to provide customers with cost-effective, high-performance RF capability in a compact form factor for a wide range of applications including software-defined radio (SDR), tactical communications, and signals intelligence (SIGINT). Key highlights of the RF-4902 include:

* Compact, single-width, 3U high form-factor
* 200 MHz to 2.5 GHz frequency coverage
* Operable for applications requiring up to 195 MHz Receive, 400 MHz Transmit analog bandwidth
* 20 microsecond tuning switching time for demanding frequency hopping applications
* Full-duplex transceiver capability for TDD and FDD waveforms
* On-board user programmable Virtex5 SXT FPGA
* Digital IF/baseband output via high-speed serial interface
* Supports coherent operation across multiple modules for MIMO applications
* Available in air-cooled or conduction cooled formats for use in harsh environments
* Software API library, and reference software examples

The RF-4902 demonstration will feature the transmission of a complex signal through its digital-to-analog converter stage, followed by up-conversion to the L-band frequency range and display on a signal analyzer.

The SDR-2010 is a pre-integrated signal processing system that provides high-speed A/D and D/A conversion combined with FPGA processing in an Intel-based PC or Server. An SDR-2010 system contains one or more of Spectrum’s PRO-2910 PCI Express (PCIe) carrier boards, each with two XMC/PMC sites. The standard SDR-2010 configuration includes one XMC-1131, a dual ADC FPGA processing module, and one XMC-2131, a dual DAC FPGA processing module, mounted on one PRO-2910 carrier in a Intel-based tower PC running Red Hat Linux.

The SDR-2010 demonstration will show the hardware digitizing and down-converting an analog signal within the FPGA, and stream it directly into MATLAB on the host PC for processing and display. With MATLAB integration, customers can rapidly develop their own algorithms.
