Direct RF

Product comparison


Direct RF sampling and Direct RF converters represent a significant technological advancement in radio frequency systems, enabling the direct conversion of analog RF signals to digital without the need for intermediate frequency (IF) stages.

This approach leverages high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs) capable of sampling and generating signals at gigasamples per second (GSPS) rates. These direct RF converters handle wide bandwidths and operate in higher Nyquist zones, capturing or producing signals with high resolution and dynamic range.

The result is a simplified system architecture, reducing the component count and signal degradation typically introduced by multiple conversion stages. This technology finds extensive use in applications such as software-defined radios, 5G communications, radar systems, and electronic warfare, where flexibility, performance, and real-time processing capabilities are paramount. Direct RF sampling is utilised in various applications, including communications, radar, and electronic warfare systems.

Sarsen Technology works with a selection of manufacturers to provide Direct RF products based on the very latest technology from Altera and Xilinx. This web site can only detail a representative sample of the complete range.
