Software Defined Radio (SDR) Development Unit
Peak Communications Ltd. – SDR7000 Series;
This is an example of Peaks abilities and willingness to support customers with development requirements, reducing the workload on the customers R&D team and allowing their time to be dedicated to the SDR coding platform.
The SDR7000 series integrates a 3rd party SDR development kit along with support RF circuitry into a 1RU chassis, providing a full user interface, remote control, power supplies etc.
The unit provides a vehicle for use during in-house Alpha testing, through customer Beta testing stage and as deliverables against early production phases of the project. Higher quantity, application specific, production versions would then be considered to reduce costs in order to achieve commercial targets.
The SDR7000 series provide easy to use and comprehensive configuration & control features, fault monitoring protection, safe-start routines, multiple interface options and an in-built high stability reference facility. It incorporates a graphics display module, membrane keyboard and features a clear and intuitive control and configuration menu, fully utilising the unique graphics display.
Front panel connections include HDMI and USB for control of the development platform.
1RU solution including dedicated and monitored PSU’s for the chosen development kit.
Integral 40MHz high stability OCXO with external reference and automatic detection.
Chassis locations for ZC706 development kit and ADI FCOMMS5.
1pps buffer circuitry.
All USB connections to rear panel including UART and JTAG .
Flexible application specific RF circuitry available.
Ethernet connections to both Chassis processor and development kit.
