The Flexor® line of FMC analog modules and OnyxFX™ FMC carrier boards combines the high performance of the Virtex-7 FPGA with the flexibility of the FMC data converter thereby creating a complete radar and software radio solution. As a FlexorSet® integrated solution, the analog I/O FMC is factory-installed on the FMC carrier. The required FPGA IP is installed, and the board set is delivered ready for immediate use.
The Pentek Cobalt® architecture features a Virtex-6 FPGA. All of the board’s data and control paths are accessible by the FPGA, enabling factory-installed functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering and memory control. The Cobalt architecture organizes the FPGA as a container for data-processing applications where each function exists as an intellectual property (IP) module.
The requirements for automotive radar sensors in common ranges - such as 24 GHz and 77 GHz - are becoming more stringent and engineers need to understand how design decisions affect performance.
Noise figure is a key parameter that quantifies receiver performance by measuring how low a power a signal receiver can detect. This white paper covers the basic principles of noise figure, how to make sense of its specifications, how it is measured, and why this parameter is important in high-performance applications.
This paper presents results from modeling RF propagation in a mine using Wireless InSite®. The Edgar Mine in Idaho Springs, CO provided the realistic scenario for the model. The path loss exponent was evaluated for a 5m section of the modeled mine by considering three different materials and three different standard deviation of surface roughness values for dry granite. When comparing this simulated data with data retrieved from the Edgar Mine it was determined that the Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD) ray tracing code, of Wireless InSite, can portray a communications system within a mine environment.
Connected and Autonomous Driving (AD) vehicles bring new requirements for network architectures and the Cloud in order to support the new workloads and satisfy real-time service requirements. This white paper demonstrates how Edge Computing provides computing, storage, and networking capabilities in a network, and how this technology supports multiple services for connected AD vehicles.
The PXI is a PC-based platform designed for measurement and automation systems. The software powered platform combines PCI electrical-bus features with the modular, Eurocard packaging of CompactPCI and then adds specialized synchronization buses and key software features.
