Excellence in Product Develpment


The RDP-100 is a 6U Compact-PCI form factor hardware development platform that can be used for a variety of applications, such as Software Defined Radio. The RDP-100 module has been optimized to provide high performance signal conversion using high speed ADC’s and DAC’s. Paired with a Virtex-5 FPGA and PowerPC, algorithms such as digital down conversion, FFT, and filtering can be developed to allow IF signal’s to be digitized and processed directly on the RDP-100 module.
