Echotek announces the release of the ECDR-4-14105, which will provide the SigInt, Elint and Radar systems designer with a powerful new tool designed to solve the demanding signal processing and data movement tasks associated with these complex systems. By combining high-resolution A/D technology and large, modern FPGA resources on a VME board, the ECDR-4-14105 gives the designer a single platform to capture four channels of (up to 200 MHz) IF data, preprocess each channel individually, and execute algorithms that require access to all four channels. Two boards can be configured to acquire and coherently process up to eight channels. The receiver board combines the A/D converter data with time and frequency domain processing. The product is offered as a single or dual-slot 6U VME module. The dual slot module includes a custom-finned heat sink over the receiver/FFT, and user programmable FPGAs for applications requiring additional cooling.
