SDR-KIT 580AD2 is one-transmitter and two-channel receiver radar kit in C-band. Its center frequency and the bandwidth of transmitted signals are selectable and adjustable within a wide frequency band of 5.6-6.0 GHz. The maximum detectable range is about 110-m for 1-sm of RCS.

 

It is designed to support interferometric radar and direction of arrival (DOA) measurement. It is suitable for human activity monitoring, occupancy sensing, gesture sensing, through-the-wall, and many other indoor and outdoor monitoring.

 

Typical output power of the transmitter is 20 dBm. Three single-ended SMA female connectors are installed for easy connection to external antenna units.

 

 

Detailed Information

RF Module

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.

Processor Module

The FPGA-based processor module functions as a microcontroller, processor and power management unit and offers ultimate design flexibility with industry-leading programmable logic. It has four 40-MSPS ADCs to support two receiving channels. 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.

 

Graphical User Interface

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.
