DCM-2R2300-2T2300-FMC Transceiver

Product Description

The 2R2300-2T2300-FMC is an FMC (VITA 57.1) packaged transceiver with full wave-form, high fidelity, coherent functionality over the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Ideally suited for complex EW, RADAR, ELINT and similar applications, this transceiver delivers excellent multi-channel, high resolution, synchronized signal processing performance.

When mounted on Mercury SCFE-V6-OVPX FPGA carriers, high fidelity, high resolution, high bandwidth, low-latency switched-fabric communication with other subsystem resources is enabled.

2R2300-2T2300-FMC may be programmed using Mercury’s versatile EchoCore™ programmable IP. This suite delivers elegant streaming-data algorithms to encompass fundamental signal selection and filtering functions. EchoCore standardizes cores with basic DSP/FPGA functionality and testing, reducing development time, while increasing solution quality. Modules may be integrated forming coherent, synchronized subsystems using EchoCore’s algorithm processing library.

Supplied as standalone units or as part of a sensor processing solution, these modules are fully tested and their results documented. All links and diagnostics are verified and performed at the factory and each transceiver is ready for application porting right out of the box.
