3U OpenVPX Wideband RF-to-Digital Transceiver with Frequency Range from 20 MHz to 3 GHz


3U OpenVPX RF Solution

The RF-7102 is a wideband frequency-agile RF-to-Digital transceiver designed to provide customers with cost-effective, high-performance RF capability in a compact 3U OpenVPX form factor. It features a high linearity, wideband RF tuner/exciter ranging from 20 MHz to 3 GHz (UHF, VHF, L-Band, ISM) for use in a wide range of applications including wideband datalinks, tactical communications, signals intelligence (SIGINT – COMINT/ELINT), and software defined

Features and Benefits
  • Integrated RF and Digital IF Processing in a single 3U OpenVPX slot
  • High linearity, wideband RF Transceiver, 20 MHz to 3 GHz
  • 14-bit ADC 490 MSPS, 16-bit DAC 980 MSPS
  • Fast-frequency hopping up to 3000 hops/sec
  • Up to 200 MHz Receiver analog bandwidth
  • Up to 400 MHz Transmitter analog bandwidth
  • Xilinx Virtex-5 SX95T-2 User FPGA for flexible IF signal processing
  • High-speed serial connection to host processor
  • Software drivers and API, FPGA interface libraries, and example code included
  • Digital Down Converter (DDC) and Up Converter (DUC) IP included
  • Rugged conduction- or air-cooled form factors available
  • Designed to operate with host SBC, VPX-1131, VPX-1151, and VPX-8320 as part of Spectrum’s SDR-7000 family
  • Not subject to US ITAR control

The RF-7102 is optimized for linearity. This benefits applications where there are typically more interfering signals.
