SPR870A (GE Intelligent Platforms)
• 2 Transformer-coupled analog inputs, 10-bits, Fs < 1.375 GHz per channel • 2 Transformer-coupled analog outputs, 12-bits, Fs< 1.375 GHz per channel • Xillinx Virtex-6 SX475T User Programmable FPGA standard, LX240T and other devices optionally available • PCIe x4 Master/Target Burst Mode DMA capable • VxWorks
The SPR870A is a 3U VPX Wideband Digital Receiver/Exciter Module. Building on GE’s legacy of industry-leading digital receiver families and extending still further the growing ecosystem of GE 3U VPX solutions, it features Xilinx® Virtex™-6 FPGA technology to enable its deployment in wideband signal acquisition and conversion applications such as radar ECM (electronic counter measures), pulse intercept and analysis (ELINT) and RF (radio frequency) test applications.
The type of highly demanding, sophisticated ECM applications for which the SPR870A is ideal include spoofing hostile radar – allowing the host to change its perceived characteristics, for example, to confuse enemy intelligence – or for jamming remote control IED (improvised explosive device) signals, enabling bombs to be defused more safely and protecting key assets during operations.
The SPR870A includes the highest performance FPGA-based DSP engine in 3U VPX available today and can be deployed in harsh environments for real-time processing in radar, ISR, and other high performance applications - providing substantial SWaP savings, maximizing performance and troop & asset safety and will save months of internal hardware engineering.
