Turnkey Instrumentation Solutions for Digital Receiver/Recording, Spectrum Analysis & Software Defined Radio

Digital Receiver Instrumentation Series Turnkey instrumentation solutions

Innovative Integration, a trusted supplier of signal processing and data acquisition hardware and software solutions, today 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 Independent DDC Channels and One 32K FFT, a great solution for Digital Receiver/Recording, Spectrum Analysis, Surveillance, or Software Defined Radio. A development kit is available to support creation of advanced custom firmware.
