Pentek has added the Model 6350S and Model 6353S (Gen 3 RFSoC), eight-channel A/D and D/A converter subsystems in rugged small form factor package to its Quartz® RFSoC Architecture family. Based on Pentek QuartzXM eXpress modules that utilize the Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+ RFSoC FPGA, the Model 6350S and Model 6353S are ideal for SIGINT and COMINT, military communications, EW countermeasures, radar transceiver, test and measurement, SATCOM, LiDAR, 5G and LTE wireless applications.
“Our Quartz RFSoC customers continue to come up with requests for challenging packaging options for our QuartzXM eXpress modules. Pentek is now shipping the Model 6350S and Model 6353S to fill the gap between our module and our fully enclosed system solutions," said Bob Sgandurra, director of Product Management of Pentek. He added, "The small size of these subsystems enables customers to install our Quartz RFSoC technology within their existing enclosures.”
The Model 6350S and Model 6353S are complete self-contained RF converter and processing subsystems in a small mounting frame. Requiring only a single 12-V power supply, the subsystems can be integrated as a component in a larger system with minimal design effort. All analog I/O and control and communication interfaces are easily accessible with industry standard connectors, simplifying connections to other system components. The bottom surface of the subsystem provides an efficient thermal interface enabling conduction cooling and allowing fan-less operation in most installations.
