Chicago, IL – Temex announces the launch of a new digital pulse compression sub-system (DPCSS) with chirp generator (transmitter) and compressor (receiver) modules at intermediate frequency (IF): the CI BM7xx. This DPCSS with analog I/Os enables upgrades of SAW-based radars by increasing overall system performance.
The CI BM7xx comes from Temex’s 30 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of high-performance signal processors. Combining the latest generation field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for signal processing and the analog input and output for the IF of the SAW, this signal processor is an excellent replacement solution for currently operating SAW-based radars. High-speed digital signal processing removes all the inherent limitations of SAW analog nature and improves performances of side lobes level (which is now like the theory), differential phase between receiver channels (which is now perfect). Temex’s digital solution lowers power consumption in comparison to oven devices.
This pulse compression sub-system is self-consistent and needs only a DC supply voltage for operation. All the pulse compression parameters such as center frequency, bandwidth, time dispersion, modulation law, weighting function are programmable.
Main characteristics of the new Temex CI BM7xx:
– Instantaneous dynamic range (low side lobe level)
– Accurate angular measurements (angle of arrival)
– Flexibility (programmable parameters), etc.
– I/O frequency: up to 120 MHz (center frequency + half bandwidth)
