Furthering its initiative in offering world class electronic solutions to meet the demanding requirements of the aerospace and defense applications, Mistral Solutions, a leading product realization company specializing in real-time embedded solutions, today announced the availability of its Radar Receiver.
The Radar Receiver, named ‘SaraAmsh’, is a 1U form-factor, 19” sub-rack mountable, compact unit; with an 8-channel receiver that supports direct IF sampling. The Radar Receiver is built around a Virtex-5 FPGA based processing engine with powerful processing and high bandwidth features that make it ideal for DSP applications including signal intelligence, electronic warfare and counter measures.

Features of the Radar Receiver:

* 1U form factor chassis
* F8-channel receiver sampling between 10-250 MSPS
* Direct IF sampling – all channels can be synchronized for the same sampling time
* Minimum Detectable Signal (MDS): -88dBFS
* Bandwidth: 700MHz ( -3dB)
* Dynamic Range: 2Vpp
* Supports multiple I/O interfaces like FMC (VITA 57), GigE, optical and electrical serial standards like serial-FPDP, PCIe, Aurora, SRIO, XAUI
* FPGA based processing at wire speed supports multiple algorithm running in parallel
* PowerPC based Host interface with VxWorks/Linux BSP
* High bandwidth I/O between FPGAs for optimizing/maximizing performance
* Available in commercial and rugged industrial version

“The Radar Receiver designed by Mistral is unique as compared to most other COTS boards available in the market. Its integrates multiple ADCs, FPGA processing engines, Single Board Computer and various serial and parallel industry standard interfaces, to provide customers a complete solution. Customers can focus on their end-application instead of spending valuable time integrating multiple COTS boards available in the market to build their own Radar Receiver solution,” said A Venkatakrishna, Vice President-Hardware Design, Mistral Solutions. “One of the important requirements users look for in a Radar Receiver is synchronization between channels, and Mistral’s Radar Receiver has been architected to achieve this,” he added.

The scalable design for the Radar Receiver ensures that multiple 1U Radar Receiver units can be stacked together to provide additional receiving channels and enhanced processing
