Mercury Computer Systems has announced the availability of the initial offering of the new Echotek Series family of high-performance, Virtex-5 FPGA-based digital receivers.

The new Echotek Series DCM-V5-XMC digital receiver features the latest in A/D and D/A technology, allowing for high-speed/high-resolution data conversion while still preserving the quality of the original signal. It implements either a Virtex-5 SX95T or LX155T FPGA, which can be programmed by the end-user for customer-specific application features.

Each Virtex-5 FPGA is accompanied by both DDR-II-SDRAM and QDR-II-SRAM memory chips; the memory is available for buffering input data streams and for supporting computationally intense applications. This set of flexible resources delivers unique capabilities, such as multiboard coherency, making the new product especially well suited for beamforming and direction-finding as required by many radar, signals intelligence, electronics intelligence and communications applications.

The Echotek Series DCM-V5-XMC digital receiver is the first of a line of Virtex-5 based digital receivers that are planned for release by Mercury within the next calendar year.
