Direct RF DRF3182 FPGA 3U OpenVPX Board

Fast Direct RF Wideband Data Capture at the Edge

COTS 3U VPX processing board powered by the Intel® Stratix® 10 AX SoC FPGA

Electronic warfare, radar and ELINT applications demand direct RF solutions to deliver low-latency, fast data processing solutions for critical real-time decision-making. The DRF3182 offers heterogenous FPGA processing with explosive A/D & D/A speeds of 51.2 GSPS, Ku band frequency coverage from 2-18 GHz and six 100 GigE interfaces with an aggregate throughput of 75 GB/sec. Plus, COTS technology reduces time to market and fewer modules decreases system costs.
