10GE VITA-49 Eight-Channel Tuner Equipment Frame
The 1U-rack-mountable frame holds one to eight SP-8383-x VHF/UHF tuners and includes a four-tuner digitizer with space for a second digitizer. Each digitizer is capable of 40 MHz of bandwidth per tuner. The digital IF outputs are on a 10-gigabit Ethernet (10GE) interface in a VITA-49 compatible format. The 10GE transceiver on the digitizer is implemented with an SFP+ site, so it may use a variety of commercially available fiber or copper 10GE interfaces. The unit can be purchased with a larger FPGA to support user applications.
