UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. – Pentek Inc. in Upper Saddle River, N.J., is introducing the Talon RTR 2742 turn-key record and playback data recorder for ultra-wideband analog RF/IF signals.
The RTR 2742 4U 19-inch rackmount recorder uses two 12-bit, 6.4 GHz A/D converters to achieve sustained recording of 2.4 GHz bandwidth signals at rates as fast as six gigabytes per second.
Users can configure the recorder as a one- or two-channel system and can record real samples or complex I+Q digitally down-converted samples.
Complemented by a 16-bit 6.4 GHz D/A converter, the RTR 2742 can play back analog signal bandwidths as large as 1.28 GHz. Built-in digital down- and up-converters provide flexible bandwidth and tuning frequency selection for record and playback.
The industrial-grade 4U 19-inch rackmount chassis of the RTR 2742 has hot-swappable data drives, front-panel USB ports, and I/O connectors on the rear panel. The chassis is optimized for cooling and ruggedized to operate in challenging environments.
The RTR 2742 includes a 12-bit 6.4 GHz A/D that can be clocked at rates from 1.6 to 6 GHz in single-channel mode. Data can be truncated and packed as 8-bit samples, to support continuous recording to the maximum sample rate.
The D/A is capable of reproducing signals with as much as 1.28 GHz of instantaneous bandwidth, and includes a wide range of interpolations. The RTR 2742 provides as much as 122 terabytes of front-panel-removable solid-state storage for hours of real-time, high-bandwidth signal recording.
