Ease of Operation
The PCM Receiver Brick and the PCM Data Brick combination represents a breakthrough in portable PCM processing functionality. By connecting the compact PCM Receiver Brick to any commercial PC or laptop using the basic RS232 com port and then connecting the PCM Data Brick to a high-speed USB V2.0 I/O port, users have at their command an integrated PCM processing front-end solution capable of operating at up to 20 Mbps. Included with the PCM Receiver Brick is a Windows graphical user interface (GUI) that provides all Receiver controls and a received signal strength indicator.
The PCM Receiver Brick's low noise figure and the PCM Data Brick's high performance variable rate PCM bit synchronization combine to provide an affordable, compact, and rugged package that can match or even exceed some lab-based ground stations. The PCM Receiver Brick excels in harsh noise environments and provides support for extreme signal-to-noise performance when attached to high gain antenna systems.
Occupying only a small 3.5-inch by 9-inch footprint, the PCM Receiver Brick can be coupled with any TDS instrumentation set-up, flight-line check out, quick-look processing, and ground station processing software products to provide a best-value solution for telemetry system engineers and integrators. Our company's patented bit synchronizer phase-lock loop and tracking features equal the performance levels of modern ground station solutions at a fraction of the cost.
