It features the 4 TX and 4 RX channels that are tunable from 300 MHz to 6 GHz. The SDR-1001 ships with a default BPSK/QPSK modem and optional FPGA Developer Toolkit enabling custom waveform development.

SDR-1001 Features

  • High-reliability flight-ready solution for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and airborne missions
  • Credit-card-sized stand-alone module weighing 100 grams
  • 4 TX / 4 RX Channels tunable from 300 MHz to 6 GHz with 100 MHz RF bandwidth per channel
  • Custom waveform support with 70% FPGA resources available for custom designs
  • Ships with a default CSMA mesh networking modem with SpaceWire and Ethernet connectivity

The SDR is designed to meet today’s requirements and handle extreme environmental conditions. It integrates a flexible RF front-end with high-performance FPGA along with Mil-Spec connectors to provide access to RF signals and enable both SpaceWire and Ethernet connectivity.
