System 3422 Sonobuoy Receiver with GPS 


DSPCon's 3422 -15CH-DM-GPS is based on true software-defined radio technology, which means it's easily reconfigured when waveform requirements change.

It offers greater overall economies with DSPCon's software-centric design. With software at its core, it can more readily accommodate future requirements including additional demodulation schemes. The system can receive any combination of analog (FM) and digital (FSK) radio signals with the same hardware - without the need to replace receiver cards or circuitry.


  • Software-centric design lowers risk and cost of receiving radio-frequency signals for commercial, military, and government organizations
  • Built-in GPS delivers position information in NMEA message format
  • Processes both analog and digital modes for BARRA Buoy data
  • Expandable architecture allows for increasing channel count
  • Broad dynamic range receives transmitter signals from near and far simultaneously
  • Ruggedized hardware based on commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) parts to preserve return-on-investment (ROI)
  • SWaP-optimized: DSPCon's architecture provides lowest size, weight and power for given capacity of any available solution

For analog channel decoding, DSPCon offers the System 3422.

For digitial channel decoding, DSPCon Offers the System 3422-DM.


CHEETAH Miniature Wide-Band Phase-Coherent Tuner Front-End  


The WiNRADiO WR-G528e is a miniaturized, versatile, USB-interfaced high-performance receiver front-end with dual application capability.

A single WR-G528e module can be utilized as a compact, single-channel front-end suitable for fast signal intercept, acquisition and monitoring applications. When two identical modules are interconnected to share a common frequency reference (either internal or external), they can form a basis of a dual-channel phase-coherent direction-finding system with excellent phase and amplitude matching characteristics. 



  • Input frequency range 0.01-3000 MHz
  • Single or dual-channel phase-coherent applications
  • IF output 70 MHz
  • IF bandwidth 22 MHz
  • Excellent phase and amplitude matching
  • 1 ppm frequency stability or 10 MHz external reference
  • Small size and weight
  • Low power consumption
  • High dynamic range
  • Fast tuning speed
  • USB 2.0 and RS-232 interface

CobaltŪ Model 71670 Converter Module 


Model 71670 is a member of the CobaltŪ family of high performance XMC modules based on the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. This 4-channel, high-speed data converter is suitable for connection to transmit HF or IF ports of a communications or radar system. Its built-in data playback features offer an ideal turnkey solution for demanding transmit applications. 



  • Complete radar and software radio interface solution
  • Supports Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and SXT FPGAs
  • Four 1.25 GHz 16-bit D/As
  • Four digital upconverters
  • Programmable output levels
  • 250 MHz max. output bandwidth
  • 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM
  • Sample clock synchronization to an external system reference
  • Dual-μSync clock/sync bus for multimodule synchronization
  • PCI Express (Gen. 1 & 2) interface up to x8
  • User-configurable gigabit serial interface
  • LVDS connections to the Virtex-6 FPGA for custom I/O
