RMDS-300S Multimode Demod, Receiver, Decom, Simulator, Timecode
The RMDS-300S combines the functions of RF Receiver, Bit Synchronizer, Data Decommutator, and Simulator into a single full-size PCI Bus card. The card can be installed in a Desk Top PC for preflight or lab test. The RF Receiver has L or S-band coverage (customer specified at time of order) and can demodulate both SOQPSK and PCM/FM. RF Frequency tuning is in 100 kHz steps. There are four IF Bandwidths from 0.5MHz to 20MHz that are automatically selected as a function of bit rate and modulation type. The demodulated RF signal is input to the Bit Sync that provides clock reconstruction and data recovery. Data rates up to 20 Mbps (SOQPSK) and 10Mbps (PCM/FM) can be processed. Recovered PCM data and clock outputs are provided via RS422 and TTL drivers.
The Bit Sync output is also internally connected to the on-card Data Decommutator. The Data Decommutator provides full IRIG Frame Synchronization and data Decommutation. The Decom accepts PCM data at rates up to 20 Mbps from either an external source or the on-card Bit Sync. The Decom external data and clock inputs are programmable for RS-422 (20 Mbps – 120 ohm) or TTL (10 Mbps – 10K ohm).
Decommutated data words and frame time tags are made available via the PCI bus for analysis, archival, and monitoring. A Parallel Output Port provides the customer with the Frame Data and control signals. The customer can Cherry Pick any or all desired words from the Frame.
A DB25 connector is used for each Parallel Output Port (top of the card) and the I/O port (rear of the card on rear I/O plate). The rear I/O plate is also equipped with two SMA connectors, one for the RF Receiver input (Antenna) and one input for future expansion.
Aerospace Instrumentation Brochure
Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, and it can be difficult to know how to meet program needs. It’s not unusual for requirements to change during a campaign and cause significant delays, and data must be captured reliably no matter what – otherwise expensive additional flights will be needed or months of program data could be lost. Read our brochure to learn how you can reduce your risk with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.
