Adaptive IF Relay XMC

Pentek, Inc., (Upper Saddle River, NJ) has introduced the newest member of its Cobalt® line of XMCs (Switched Mezzanine Cards). The Model 71624 dual channel, 34 signal, adaptive IF (Intermediate Frequency) relay XMC with a Virtex- 6 FPGA accepts two IF analog input channels, modifies up to 34 signals, and then delivers them to two analog IF outputs. Any signal within each IF band can be independently enabled or disabled, and changed in both frequency and amplitude as it passes through the module. The Model 71624 features 34 digital down converters (DDCs), each independently tunable across a 100 MHz input IF range, handling signal bandwidths from 20 kHz up to 312 kHz. The DDCs deliver 34 baseband signals to the host computer, which determines how each signal is dropped, replaced, or changed in amplitude and frequency. The modified signals are then combined and delivered as an analog IF output.

The Cobalt Model 71624 XMC is designed for commercial, rugged or conduction cooled operating environments. It is also available in several form factors, including 3U and 6U VPX (52624/53624 & 57624/58624), 3U and 6U cPCI (72624/73624/ 74624), AMC (56624) and PCIe (78624).
