July 25, 2017‚îÄPentek. introduced an addition to the Talon Series of recorders, the Model RTR 2745 rackmount recorder. This recorder is designed to increase the bandwidth for record and playback of the Talon Rackmount Series with capability to capture and reproduce signal bandwidths up to 560 MHz.
The RTR 2745 is a wideband recording and playback system that provides real-time capture of RF and IF signals. With two 3 GHz 14-bit A/D converters and built-in digital down converters(DDCs), the system is designed for capturing the IF outputs of RF downconverters with bandwidths as high as 600 MHz. Selectable DDC tuning frequencies allow the RTR 2745 to accommodate a broad range of IF outputs.
The DDCs provide a fixed decimation of 4 with selectable tuning frequencies to fs/2. This provides flexibility when trying to match the IF of a selected wideband RF down converter.
Two output channels with 2.8 GHz 16-bit D/Asand matching digital up converters (DUCs) provide a fixed interpolation of 4 to allow for signal reproduction of recorded signals.
The 3 GHz A/Ds can operate without the digital down converters to provide an extremely wide baseband capture. The system offers sample rates ranging from 1.5 GHz to 3.0 GHz.
The RTR 2745 offers a storage capacity up to 61 TB, utilizing up to 32 hot-swappable solid-state drives (SSDs) that can be removed or exchanged during a mission to retrieve recorded data extends.
