CAMBRIDGE, England – Cambridge Pixel in Cambridge, England, is introducing the HPx-346 compact, low-power stand-alone primary radar input and network distribution card for importing analog radar data into a modern digital display.

The HPx-346 runs on less than 5 Watts, and is designed to convert analog radar signals into a standard open network data stream such as ASTERIX CAT-240.

The small form factor HPx-346 card measures 149 by 74 millimeters, and features a combined ARM/FPGA system-on-chip processor to handle the radar acquisition and data conversion.

Users may configure the card through a Web interface with settings made to the card for autonomous operation. Alternatively, a programming API is available to permit remote control and set-up.

The HPx-346 supports a wide variety of signal types and input voltages including differential and single-ended signals with selectable signal levels and input impedances. This allows connection to a diverse range of commercial and military radar types including those from Furuno, JRC, Kelvin Hughes, Koden, Raytheon, Sperry and Terma.

The HPx-346 accepts radar video, trigger and azimuth signals in the form of ACP/ARP. Users can configure the card as a stand-alone radar processor with the card installed within existing equipment, or supplied in a compact enclosure.

A development kit is available comprising the card, power supply, RadarView Software, and a software development library. For more information contact Cambridge Pixel online at www.cambridgepixel.com.
