IF Digitizers and Integrated RF/Digitizer Solutions

Silver Palm Technologies offers an extensive line of products that integrate with existing receiver and tuner assets to convert analog intermediate frequency (IF)-based systems to a modern 10-gigabit Ethernet (10GE) digital IF format. All of the benefits of a completely digital 10GE-based IF architecture can be achieved without the need to replace costly radio frequency (RF) front-end hardware. Products offered by Silver Palm Technologies provide enhanced features such as the following:

  • VMEbus International Trade Association (VITA)-49-compliant IF format
  • IF bandwidths up to 40 MHz
  • Integrated 10-MHz GPS-stabilized reference
  • Integrated digital down converters (DDCs) and resamplers
  • Pass-through receiver control
  • Small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) site to support various 10GE physical interfaces

5841_transSP-5801 Four or eight channels of up to 40 MHz. 10GE (SFP+) VITA-49 output. 19″ rack mount.
SP-5841 Four channels of up to 40 MHz. 10GE (SFP+) VITA-49 output. CD-ROM form factor.

In addition to an extensive line of IF digitizers, Silver Palm Technologies also offers products with integrated high-performance RF tuners. These products provide a high level of integration within an extremely economical system architecture. Features include the following:

  • Very high frequency/ultra high frequency (VHF/UHF) coverage
  • Up to 40 MHz bandwidth
  • Flexible packaging
  • Alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) solutions
