VadaTech announces the AMC597 300MHz to 6GHz Octal Versatile Wideband Transceiver

Henderson, NV – June 28, 2017 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the AMC597 300MHz to 6GHz Octal Versatile Wideband Transceiver. This single-module full-size AMC module comprises quad AD9371 RF transceivers coupled to a Xilinx UltraScale Kintex XCKU115 with 20GB DDR4. The transceivers are tunable over 300MHz to 6GHz, covering most licensed and unlicensed cellular bands, with a 250MHz transmit/synthesis bandwidth and 100MHz receive bandwidth. FDD and TDD operation are supported, making the unit suitable for 3G/4G BTS equipment. Observation (to monitor tx output) and sniffer (to monitor other bands) receiver channels are also provided. The unit ships with example source code that can be used royalty-free (on VadaTech hardware) in customer applications.

The same architecture is available as a 3U OpenVPX module in the VPX597, supporting customers who require this advanced capability in this form factor for military communications and related applications (e.g. SDR, SIGINT, first responder and emergency communications).
