Mistral Unveils Pentland's RAD-2 Digital Receiver PMC

Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a leading provider of complete technology solutions and professional services in the embedded space, announced the availability of the RAD-2 from Pentland Systems, a solution specifically designed for the Radar, Software Radio and Signal Intelligence markets.

The RAD-2 digital receiver PMC is a leading solution for acquisition of high-speed analog signals and offers a dual Channel, 14-bit resolution with up to 105MSPS sampling speed and 16 individual down-converter channels provided by 4GC4016 down-converters for I&Q demodulation. Substantial FPGA resources augment the dual 105MSPS analog acquisition channels. High-bandwidth transfer over 64-bit 66MHz PCI is enabled using powerful on-board DMA engines. Extensive support for system-level functionality such as BIT is also provided. OS drivers are available for VxWorks, Linux and Windows XP.

The RAD-2 has a powerful suite of post-acquisition DSP capabilities, with a user-programmable Xilinx Virtex II(TM) FPGA for digital signal processing and A/D control along with bi-directional high-speed FIFO buffers and a comprehensive built-in-test with extensive support for PBIT, IBIT & CBIT modes. RAD-2 is available in commercial and rugged conduction-cooled environmental versions.
