Synchronization is important in multichannel applications like phased array radar, diversity receivers, direction finding and beamforming antennas.
These applications abound in military systems, but the same concepts are also used in medical imaging and industrial inspection systems where beamforming
improves the image resolution.
Pentek's range of high-speed system synchronization and distribution products are designed to support multiple Pentek Virtex-6 Cobalt® and Pentek
Virtex-7 Onyx™ modules at clock rates up to 1.8 GHz and sample rates to 3.6 GHz.. In the cascade mode, up to eight 7893 boards can be linked to
allow 64 Onyx or Cobalt boards to receive a common clock along with timing signals for synchronizing, triggering and gating functions.
The modules are available in PMC/XMC, PCI, VPX, cPCI and rugged form factors supporting a range of environments from the lab to deployment.
