Taking Advantage of FPGAs in Rugged Environments

March 20, 2024
This series of Embedded Tech Trends videos examines advanced FPGA use in rugged, high-performance applications.

Rugged and Mil/Aero Systems @ Embedded Tech Trends 2024

Check out the technology presentations from this year's rugged computing event.

These videos were recorded at the Embedded Tech Trends (ETT) conference. They focus on FPGA technology in rugged environments and applications. 

New Direct RF Technologies Boost Defense Systems

Mercury Systems' Rodger Hosking presents the Direct RF FPGA approach for digitizing wideband RF analog signals (watch video above). It eliminates complex and costly analog RF tuners and upconverters, replacing them with Direct RF ADCs and DACs that can digitize K-band RF signals at 64 Gsamples/s. It's also capable of capturing signal bandwidths up to 30 GHz.
