Innovative Integration has announced the Digital Receiver Instrumentation Series, turnkey solutions providing integrated digital downconversion (DDC), FFT, spectrum monitoring, and digital beam-forming functions. The solutions consists of three parts: An FPGA-based analog digitizer module, a PC-based host controller plus an optional firmware development kit to allow customization.
The digitizer module is provided with software examples and C++ API, plus pre-compiled firmware bit image and a comprehensive manual. The module may be installed onto an XMC-PCIe adapter to allow use within a conventional PC. Alternately, it can be used within Innovative's Andale Data Recorders to capture extremely long time sequences. Or, the module may be installed within an Innovative ePC or VPXI-ePC embedded computer to create a miniature, self-contained instrument. Regardless, the application software may be used to capture and analyze the data immediately – a turnkey solution.
First in the series is 90401 Digital Receiver with eight idependent DDC channels and one 32K FFT, designed for applications such as digital receiver/recording, spectrum analysis, surveillance, and sofware defined radio. A development kit is available to support creation of advanced custom firmware.
