Product Flyer


The new DigiMaxx series Wideband Digitizer-Receiver employs an ultra-wide bandwidth and extreme sampling speed digitizing architecture to push the current boundaries of ADC technology. The DigiMaxx series utilizes a new, proprietary ADC technology to attain extremely high SNR and SFDR performance across the full bandwidth. The DigiMaxx series data outputs are completely programmable in center frequency, bandwidth, and decimation, providing the maximum in user flexibility.

The DigiMaxx offers DC to 2.6 GHz of contiguous input bandwidth, 12 Bit resolution, a minimum of 80 dB SFDR over the full input bandwidth and full programmability of digital output Center Frequency (DC to 2.6 GHz), Bandwidth (up to 300 MHz max), and Decimation Rate (200 KSamples/sec to 400 MSamples/sec).

DigiMaxx applications

The unparalleled DigiMaxx performance allows for new and expanded operation of Communications systems (JTRS/WNW, NMT, FAB-T, WIN-T, SMART-T, WGS), Software Defined Radio (SDR), Cognitive Radio (CR), Radar systems (SAR, Ground, Shipboard, Airborne), Electronic Warfare systems, WiMax and 4G, OFDM, test instruments, and many other high speed/high bandwidth applications.
