Per Vices new SDR for radar applications
Per Vices has introduced a new software defined radio for radar applications called Crimson the Next Generation (Crimson TNG).
Crimson TNG is a high performance wireless platform designed to provide seamless and transparent connectivity among wireless devices. It can be used to augment current radar technology used in defence and surveillance apparatus – such as naval, coastal, or airport surface movement - for applications including Air Traffic Control (ATC) or border security.
The full duplex transceiver has an operating frequency from DC to 6GHz with four independently controlled receive and transmit chains, each having 322MHz of RF bandwidth.
The system has a highly stable internal reference clock (+/- 5ppb) and a dual SFP+ backhaul providing up to 20Gbps transfer speeds. It also features improved channel isolation and noise figure.
