The next generation of direct RF is here and ready to redefine what’s possible in radar and
software radio, from jamming to electronic intelligence to significant performance increases
in bandwidth capture. This white paper explores why it is important to move toward direct RF,
discusses its capabilities and applications, and shows how it can help make the Department of Defense's vision of connected and well‐informed armed services, a reality. 

Download the white paper to learn:

  • The importance of radiofrequency (RF) spectrum and bandwidth
  • How legacy and heterodyne receivers work and the down-conversion of RF signals 
  • Direct RF versus IF sampling architectures 
  • The DoD's vision of microelectronics at the edge
  • Overcoming design obstacles for electronic jamming, AESA arrays, and edge processing
  • Current Direct RF Technology and Future Roadmap (FPGAs etc.)
  • 10 benefits and applications of Direct RF
