RF Conditioner
Module- RFC-D1H2


ICE1000 Series

Overview

Product Name : RFC-D1H2

This RF Conditioner module supports HF frequency band sensor collection operations including HF monitoring, HF angle of arrival direction finding, including N-channel and time-difference of arrival processing. Each module supports up to two RF antenna inputs. A single digital intermediate frequency (Digital-IF) 10GbE output port provides VITA-49 packet output for both antenna inputs. N-channel processing is supported by ganging together multiple RF Conditioner modules with a common GPS-disciplined timing source, with each module supporting two RF antenna connections.
