Innovative Integration, a Molex company, has announced a Rugged Digital Receiver K707 which integrates an embedded PC running 64-bit Linux with an internal Xilinx K410T2 FPGA and optional 3-18 GHz RF receiver in a module. It is a 3-in-1 unit: a digital beamformer, spectrum analyzer and custom software defined radio solution. Two FMC-310 plug-in modules provide up to 6 antenna inputs, 128 independent channels of DDC, and one spectrum analyzer embedded in a Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA.

The K707 is capable of monitoring and/or recording of wide, narrow-band spectra or channelized IF band data and supports continuous recording at 1,300 Mbytes/s to four SSDs until running out of disk space. Eight DDC banks, 16 channels each, can monitor 128 DDC channels per single module. Each DDC bank can select its ADC source and decimation rate; each DDC channel has its own programmable tuner and programmable low-pass filtering supporting output bandwidth up-to 800 KHz. The spectrum analyzer can calculate the wide-band spectrum of raw ADC data or the narrowband spectrum. A development kit is also available.
