Pentek Model 7141 Dual Multiband Transceiver

Pentek’s Model 7141 Dual Multiband Transceiver with FPGA is a complete software radio system for connection to HF or IF ports of a communications system and joins Pentek’s family of high-performance PMC/XMC transceiver modules. Model 7141 is an enhanced successor to Pentek’s Model 7140 transceiver, which is widely deployed by many customers for SIGINT, software radio, and communications applications. Pentek has significantly boosted analog performance in the Model 7141 so that the signal-to-noise ratio and the spurious free dynamic range are improved by 10 dB, when compared to many competitive products.
