The Microtune MT3511 RF MicroDigitizer is designed for automotive infotainment systems. The integrated 16-bit analog to digital converter (ADC) digitizes the IF signal and provides a suitable interface for high-end software defined radio architectures. A generic processor (e.g. DSP) can be used to demodulate the supported radio standards. The MT3511 is currently sampling to key customers and is priced at $3.50 in volumes of 100,000/year.
Wind River teamed with PrismTech to develop a high-performance software defined radio (SDR) solution for the military and public sectors. According to testing conducted by PrismTech, the combined SDR solution has demonstrated breakthrough performance on multiple processors from Freescale and Intel, including round trip times of less than 10 seconds to power up, initialize the platform, load waveform components, unload waveform components, and shut down the radio. The Wind River and PrismTech SDR solution is immediately available to customers worldwide.
