GE SPR870A 3U VPX Wideband Digital Receiver Exciter Module

GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the SPR870A 3U VPX Wideband Digital Receiver/Exciter Module. The SPR870A features a Xillinx Virtex-6 SX475T User Programmable FPGA (LX240T and other devices are also available). The GE SPR870A 3U VPX is ideal for wideband signal acquisition and conversion applications such as radar ECM (electronic counter measures), pulse intercept and analysis (ELINT) and RF (radio frequency) test applications.
