Multichannel software defined radio platform
Combining four RF receivers supporting VITA49 in to a small form factor platform, Quadratiq™ offers a wide RF tuning range, multiple high-speed external data interfaces, and web-server based user interface for simplifying usage.
The platform provides four RF receiver paths (configured as two separately tunable phase coherent pairs), RF tuning range between 70 MHz and 6 GHz with sub-octave pre-select filters, and supports RF channel bandwidths up to 50 MHz per receiver (maximum sample rate of 61.44 Msamples/s).
Other features include integrated Xilinx® Zynq Z-7030 System on Chip (option for upgrading to Z-7045), dual 10 Gigabit ethernet interfaces provided through dual SFP+ ports, support for unidirectional VITA49 streaming (UDP) over dual 10GbE interfaces, separate RJ45 Gigabit ethernet interface for command, control, and serving up the web-based user interface, and an integrated GPS receiver plus support for external synchronization to 10 MHz and 1PPS inputs.
The platfoem measures 8.42- x 5.75- x 1.61-inches or 21.39- x 14.61- x 4.09-cm.
"Many of our customers have a growing need to digitize and stream multiple wideband RF signals in a compact form factor," said John Orlando, CEO at Epiq Solutions. "Quadratiq provides an optimized solution that works out of the box to support this use-case, while opening the door to support additional user requirements."
