Overview

Mistral’s Next-generation Digital RF Module (DRFM) platform is a rugged system consisting of RF Up/Down Conversion using a modulator and demodulator. The Next-generation DRFM platform provides combined data acquisition and processing on a single platform.

Designed on a very compact form factor, the Next-generation DRFM platform is a conduction-cooled module that can be plugged into any conduction-cooled or air-cooled LRU and can be operational instantaneously. The Digital RF Module is ideal for use in ECM, carrier processing/echo generation, and decoy application and provides users with the flexibility to configure the system based on their applications.

The digitization and re-construction of the baseband signals are achieved through high-speed ADCs and DACs. The storage and processing are done using QDR Memory and high-performance FPGA. Jitter cleaner and skew adjustment blocks in the Next-generation DRFM platform allow better phase matching of the clock signals.
