Wideband RF digitizer and recorder
The WBX Recorder is a single channel RF digitizer and recording system with a 2.6 GHz input bandwidth and 12 TB of signal storage.
The system has one RF input, a 10 MHz reference and 1 pps input or output, and a 10 GbE output port. Signal processing functions include automatic gain control (AGC), and real to complex conversion. The 12 TB of signal storage accommodates just over a half hour of collection while digitizing the full input bandwidth (assuming 8-bit samples are stored).
Raw complex input data can be stored on the SSD blades and files can be played out the 10 GbE port.
The open system is powered by an AMD G-series processor (x/86 architecture) running Linux with 256 GB system storage with 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM.
System control is via multiple Ethernet ports. Command and control operations are exposed via a RESTful interface for easy tool integration.
