Technical Reports and documentation

  • PC104 Synthesiser (October 2007) A DDS frequency card operating up to 80MHz based around the PC104 computer bus. Multiple cards can be stacked together and clocked from a common signal reference to provide multiple phase coherent signal sources. This card has been used extensively in the latest generation of CUTLASS style radars.
  • Stereo Synthesiser Unit (October 2007) A source of multiple RF signals for the latest generation of Stereo CUTLASS radars. This 6U high unit contains six PC104 synthesizers and a small PC104 based computer to control the synthesizers. The computer runs the QNX4 operating system and becomes an additional node to the existing two nodes found on a conventional CUTLASS radar.
