Putting FPGAs to Work in Software Radio Systems

Recently updated and expanded, this handbook reviews the latest FPGA technology and how it can be put to use in software radio systems. FPGAs offer significant advantages for implementing software radio functions such as digital downconverters and upconverters. These advantages include design flexibility, higher precision processing, lower power, and lower cost. Pentek SDR products that utilize FPGA technology and their applications are also presented.

Game-Changing Technologies in Electronic Warfare

In no other warfare area is a clear pre-planned product improvement technology roadmap so critical as in the relentless EW world. As more and more modern threats emerge, EW systems must adapt or become obsolete overnight. That is why any solution must be based on state-of-the-art open systems architecture building blocks that can be both rapidly modified and implemented in both scalable and modular approaches.
