Paper Abstract

In this paper we present the radio signal acquisition module designed and build in our team for Software Radio and RADAR experiments. The module allows sampling RF and IF signals from two sources and to transfer acquired data to a Personal Computer via USB 2.0 interface. Thanks to built-in FPGA chip, it is possible to perform on-board signal preprocessing before transferring the data to PC. The PC is responsible for module configuration, triggering and data storage. We present the preliminary performance results obtained in practical experiments and measurements. The example application in Passive Coherent Location (PCL) experiments is also described.
