Features: Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a provider of complete

technology solutions and professional services, has announced the availability

of the RAD-2 from Pentland Systems, a solution specifically designed for the

Radar, Software Radio and Signal Intelligence markets.

The RAD-2 digital receiver PMC solution for acquisition of high-speed analog
signals, offers a dual Channel, 14-bit resolution with up to 105MSPS sampling

speed and 16 individual down-converter channels provided by 4GC4016

down-converters for I&Q demodulation.

Substantial FPGA resources augment the dual 105MSPS analog acquisition channels.
High-bandwidth transfer over 64-bit 66MHz PCI is enabled using powerful on-board

DMA engines. Extensive support for system-level functionality such as BIT is

also provided. OS drivers are available for VxWorks, Linux and Windows XP.

The RAD-2 has a suite of post-acquisition DSP capabilities, with a
user-programmable Xilinx Virtex II FPGA for digital signal processing and A/D

control along with bi-directional high-speed FIFO buffers and a comprehensive

built-in-test with extensive support for PBIT, IBIT and CBIT modes. RAD-2 is

available in commercial and rugged conduction-cooled environmental versions.
