RADAR technology is used in many diverse applications including astronomy, marine, air-defense, ocean and space surveillance (Synthetic Aperture RADAR), meteorological, flight control systems, and autonomous vehicles.
To extract useful information, it is important to utilize efficient digital signal processing techniques to process the received analog signals.
- Wide analog bandwidth for flexibility in selecting the IF bandwidth
- High spurious free dynamic range to resolve low level signals
- Digital down converter to reduce the sample frequency and increase signal to noise ratio
- Decimation filtering for improved ENOB
- Open FPGA for custom real-time digital signal processing
- High data transfer rate is needed to support fast post-processing
- ADQ7WB Digitizer
12 Bit two channel 5 GSPS/Channel with a 6.5GHz analog bandwidth.
- ADQ7DC Digitizer
14 Bit one channel 10 GSPS or two channels at 5 GSPS/Channel with a 3GHz analog bandwidth.
- SDR14TX - Arbitrary Waveform Generator
14-bit two analog channel 2 GHz/Channel.
- FW2DDC - Digital Down-conversion Firmware
Analog input channels receive either RF signals or (using two channels) I and Q or two differential signals.
