A foundational invention, the ability to detect weak RF signals in the presence of very strong signals, is at the heart of a new approach to digitize all radio waves with unprecedented sensitivity (down close to the thermal noise floor). This invention continues to be at the core of the second generation OneRadio 1.0 System recently released by the OneRadio team.
The OneRadio 1.0 is a server chassis powered by the OneRadio’s JTM25 receiver module, a x16 PCIe (Gen. 3) card, that contains the patented HDR technology. The OneRadio 1.0 comes in multiple configurations based on their feature sets, performance and price points.
|Receiver (Rx)||0 – 2.5 GHz||0 – 2.5 GHz||0 – 2.5 GHz|
|HDR Processing for Rx||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Instantaneous Bandwidth (IBW)||2.5 GHz||2.5 GHz||2.5 GHz|
|Data Transfer BW to Host Server via PCIe||625 MHz||1.25 GHz||2.5 GHz|
|Off-boarding BW over Ethernet||625 MHz||625 MHz||625 MHz|
|GPU Support||N/A||1||1 or more|
|Sample GPU Application||N/A||Yes||Yes|
|Availability||Now||Dec ’22||Dec ’22|
The mainstream configuration comes in a 640W AC, ~25 lbs. compact chassis (dimensions : 4.3″x10.5″x16″) that is ideal for visualization, data recording, and data off-boarding of RF spectrum.
Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The UI is a low footprint GUI optimized for real-time operations. It includes a 2.5 GHz waterfall plot, multiple customizable (5 MHz to 156 MHz) ZOOM windows (maximum of 4), user friendly data flow, instrumentation and diagnostics, easy updates to the system software, and remote access using VNCViewer.
The OneRadio 1.0 provides programmable access to the 625 MHz to 2.5 GHz of I/Q and Spectrum data over the PCIe using APIs. The system records 625 MHz of contiguous or non-contiguous I/Q data in VITA 49 format. As an example, 20 secs of 625 MHz I/Q data would require 50 GB, while a 10 min record would require 1.5 TB. The system can off-board 625 MHz of I/Q data over Ethernet to external systems enabling the remote processing of data (on GPU servers) or increasing the storage capabilities using NAS storage systems.
Temporal synchronicity across multiple geolocated OneRadio 1.0 Systems can be achieved using a single external clock. In this case, the onboard clock on each of the JTM25s will be disabled.
