4T5R space-grade integrated transceiver reference design


Design files


The 4T5R space-grade integrated transceiver reference design reference design incorporates a full RF sampling transceiver including a clocking solution and power solution. The design incoporates all -SEP flavor TI devices and space-qualified passives within a VITA-57 form factor.

  • 4T5R RF sampling space-grade transciever
  • Programmable NCOs facilitate flexible RF bands
  • On-board clocking solution for high speed sampling clock
  • Flexible design supports up to 1GHz of BW
  • Configured for L,S,X-band operation
  • Low-noise space-grade power solution included
