CAMBRIDGE, England – Cambridge Pixel in Cambridge, England, is introducing the dual-stream HPx-400e PCI Express radar signal processing card with two independent radar input channels for dual data acquisition sampling of one radar at different sampling rates, for dual redundancy, or for dual-stream capture of two separate radars.

Dual sampling of one radar at different rates enables high-resolution sampling at short-ranges for close-in detail, and low data rates at long ranges for maximum coverage.

In dual redundant mode, users can program the card to switch automatically between two radar inputs in the event of loss of trigger, ACP, or ARP signal. Alternatively, two connected radars can be processed independently using the HPx-400e thereby reducing the system card count.

The HPx-400e continues to provide the signature flexibility of Cambridge Pixel's HPx-200 series cards with support for many different radar signal types, including differential and single-ended signals, selectable signal levels and input impedances.

The HPx-400e accepts radar video, trigger and azimuth signals in the form of ACP/ARP or parallel data. A wide variety of signal types and input voltages are supported, allowing connection to commercial and military radar from Furuno, JRC, Kelvin Hughes, Koden, Raytheon, Sperry, Terma, and specialist military radars.

For developers, the HPx-400e card is available with a board support package that provides a C++ programming interface and driver package for Windows and Linux. The card is supported in Cambridge Pixel's RadarView radar visualization software and SPx Server software for target tracking and network distribution.
