Pentek introduced the Model 7191 programmable multifrequency clock synthesizer. The Pentek Model 7191 clock synthesizer uses low-noise VCXOs for the fundamental frequency generation. The VCXO output is followed by a clock synchronizer from Texas Instruments to enable synchronization with common frequency reference sources. The user-configurable PMC module is ideal for designers working with A/Ds and D/As. The price of the Model 7191 Multifrequency Programmable Clock Synthesizer is $2,995 USD.
Pentek rolled out new 3U VPX boards for data acquisition, software radio and digital signal processing. The new boards offer flexible backplane fabric connections supporting maximum data rates of up to 4 GB/sec with PCI Express (PCIe) Generation 2 (Gen 2) and 2.5 GB/sec with other protocols. The 3U VPX boards are ideal for avionics, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), shipboard and airborne radar, and signal intelligence applications.
