SDR DEVELOPMENT KIT
SDR-KIT 580AD is an advanced low-power and compact software-defined single transmitter and single receiver radar kit in C-band. It is suitable for human activity monitoring, vital-sign detection, gesture sensing, and many other indoor and outdoor target detection and imaging.
The RF module is implemented with phase-locked loop
(PLL) to achieve linearity in frequency modulations. The
center frequency and the bandwidth of transmitted signals
are selectable and adjustable within a wide frequency band of 5.2-6.0 GHz.
The FPGA-based process module SDR-PM 402 functions as a microcontroller, processor and power management unit and offers ultimate design flexibility with industry-leading programmable logic. It has two 40-MSPS ADCs to support the receiving channel. A high-speed USB peripheral controller enables digitized raw data streaming to a memory storage for post- processing. It interfaces with the RF module with a 24-pin flat flex cable (FFC) to form a standalone system.
The graphical user interface (GUI) allows the flexibility and adjustability in selecting desired signal waveform, center frequency, bandwidth, sampling rate, filtering, display parameters, and record/export I/Q data.
Typical output power of the transmitter is 21 dBm. Two single-ended SMA female connectors are installed for easy connection to external antenna units.
