Digital Baseband Generator

The Digital Baseband Generator is a conduction cooled board in a custom form factor which generates various types of signal waveforms, such as multiple carriers and AM/FM modulated signals on-the-fly with minimal switching time (<20µs) using Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) technique.

The board receives input commands over Ethernet/optical interface and the FPGAs generate the desired waveforms up to 600 MHz. The output waveforms are interfaced to external world via SMA connectors. The board operates from external clock source over SMA connectors.

The board is used in electronic warfare applications such as baseband signal generation and jammer applications.
