The Pentek Cobalt® architecture features a Virtex-6 FPGA. All of the board’s data and control paths are accessible by the FPGA, enabling factory-installed functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering and memory control. The Cobalt architecture organizes the FPGA as a container for data-processing applications where each function exists as an intellectual property (IP) module.
The Flexor® line of FMC analog modules and OnyxFX™ FMC carrier boards combines the high performance of the Virtex-7 FPGA with the flexibility of the FMC data converter thereby creating a complete radar and software radio solution. As a FlexorSet® integrated solution, the analog I/O FMC is factory-installed on the FMC carrier. The required FPGA IP is installed, and the board set is delivered ready for immediate use.
The requirements for automotive radar sensors in common ranges - such as 24 GHz and 77 GHz - are becoming more stringent and engineers need to understand how design decisions affect performance.
This case study explains how CST MICROWAVE STUDIO electromagnetic simulation software helped predict the behavior of an eASIC integrated circuit and its package and PCB layout in the design phase.
A new era of simulation “democratization” requires a new generation of software -- one that allows companies to apply simulation with more flexibility, improves development process accuracy, enables multiple physics to be studied simultaneously, and increases collaboration and best-practice adoption.
The PXI is a PC-based platform designed for measurement and automation systems. The software powered platform combines PCI electrical-bus features with the modular, Eurocard packaging of CompactPCI and then adds specialized synchronization buses and key software features.
This paper presents results from modeling RF propagation in a mine using Wireless InSite®. The Edgar Mine in Idaho Springs, CO provided the realistic scenario for the model. The path loss exponent was evaluated for a 5m section of the modeled mine by considering three different materials and three different standard deviation of surface roughness values for dry granite. When comparing this simulated data with data retrieved from the Edgar Mine it was determined that the Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD) ray tracing code, of Wireless InSite, can portray a communications system within a mine environment.
Connected and Autonomous Driving (AD) vehicles bring new requirements for network architectures and the Cloud in order to support the new workloads and satisfy real-time service requirements. This white paper demonstrates how Edge Computing provides computing, storage, and networking capabilities in a network, and how this technology supports multiple services for connected AD vehicles.
Travelling wave tubes are vacuum devices with electron beams that couple to a microwave frequency electromagnetic signal propagating in the direction of the beam. Energy is transferred to the microwave signal, and the device generally behaves as an amplifier. A suite of software has been created, which allows very fast automated analysis of some types of travelling wave tube. This white paper delves into the design and use of this software to be used for determining the electrical characteristics of traveling wave tubes.
