SBS Technologies, a leading designer and manufacturer of embedded computer solutions, is continuing its role as an embedded computer industry market leader by introducing TS series high-performance field programmable gate array (FPGA) computing line.
The TS-series software defined radio development kit available from Metromatics uses dual Altera Stratix EP1S80 FPGA computing devices offering SDR engineers the ideal platform to rapidly develop software defined radio applications without the high cost of custom hardware development.
Targeted at high-performance software defined radio applications, the TS-DK-SDR1 Kit is a highly integrated SDR development kit consisting of the TS series 6U CompactPCI single board computer with two commercial grade C7 speed grade dual EP1S80 FPGA computing devices and two PMC sites for expansion, the Wave FPGA software tool kit and Altera's soft-core Nios processor SOPC builder tool kit.
Red River's model 309 PMC flex receiver plus A/D dual channel front-end digitiser and model 919 dual DAC broadband analogue signal generator mezzanine module complete the TS series SDR development kit.
For an even more complete SDR development environment, the TS-DK-SDR2 includes all of the TK-DK-SDR1's components and adds an SBS CT8 Intel Pentium III SBC and a 6U CPCI chassis giving SDR engineers a complete signal processing development package.
