PMC571 is a high performance digital transceiver in a rugged PMC format, intended for Software Defined Radio (SDR) applications. It offers wide bandwidth analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion capabilities with 14-bit resolution. A powerful 4 Million gate FPGA provides the platform for application-specific software development within a Xilinx Virtex-II environment. PMC571 brings to rugged environments the features and functionality offered by software radio technology. The 64-bit/66 MHz PCI interface ensures compatibility with the latest generation Abaco Systems' Quad PowerPC Signal Processor boards in addition to VMEbus PowerPC and CompactPCI Single Board Computers. When harnessed with the enormous processing power provided by the hardware platforms above, and application support offered through Abaco Systems Sensor Processing, in addition to Abaco Systems' mission-critical Long-Term Support, Configuration Control and Obsolescence management services, PMC571 gives system integrators a 'complete tool set to get the job done'.
