RADX Technologies today at National Instruments NI Week 2018, announced that it has delivered the first LibertyGT LGT1288 COTS, Real-Time, Multi-Channel Measurement Software and Firmware (MC MSFS) Suite to Acquired Data Solutions® (ADS). The LGT1288 MC MSFS Suite powers an ADS Spectrum Fidelity ZX Model SF-V820 COTS, 8-Channel, Precision-Synchronized, RF Spectrum Record, Playback and Analysis System that supports 200 MHz per channel bandwidth and picosecond level inter-channel sync. ADS, which is a RADX Master Value Added Reseller (MVAR), will deliver the SF-V820 with the LGT 1288 MC MSFS to its customer later this month.
The RADX LGT1288 MC MSFS is designed to support the SF-V820 configured with up to eight (8) NI PXIe-5840 Vector Signal Transceivers (VSTs) that are directly coupled to four (4) NI PXIe-7902 FPGA-based Serial Transceivers. The PXIe-7902s read and write to SSD RAID that is comprised of four (4) Conduant DM-4M.2-3U 4TB or 8TB SSD RAID Modules (16 or 32 TB total). The RADX MC MSFS is hosted in the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs found in the PXIe-7902s and the PXIe-8880 Embedded Controller. The system’s precision timing and external trigger support is enabled via the LGT1288 MC MSFS and NI PXIe-6674T timing and sync modules. The PXIe components are housed in two PCIe-interconnected NI PXIe-1085 24 GB/sec Chassis.
The SF-V820 is the next generation of ADS RF Playback and Record systems. It is housed in a 25U Rack equipped with I/O, signal switching and alignment hardware, power distribution and a 1080p touchscreen display that enables the user to benefit from the intuitive touchscreen interfaces that come with each of the LGT1288 MC MSFS Apps: MSFS Framework with Touchscreen GUI, Remote Interface and Comprehensive API, Setup/Control App, RF Capture and Record App, RF Playback (Retransmission) App and RF Review and Analysis App.
