SX-430 EW SDR Transceiver Card


The SX-430 EW SDR Transceiver is a 3U OpenVPX CMOSS/SOSA high performance, dual-channel RX, dual-channel TX, software defined transceiver that operates over the 1-18000 MHz frequency range. Selectable instantaneous bandwidths from 40-160 MHz, industry leading tuning speeds, and Red/Black separation make this SDR an ideal fit for most EW/SIGINT/COMMS applications. The EW Card is a full subsystem in itself in that it has significant onboard FPGA resources for hosting 3rd party algorithms, such as up to 128 Inbuilt programmable DDC’s and an FFT core with 6.25 KHz resolution on each channel. The EW Card also has up to 12 GB of total onboard DDR4 memory.
