The Talon® RTR 2729A is a turnkey system that allows users to record very high-bandwidth signals in a lightweight and rugged portable package. Equipped with a 3.6 GHz 12-bit A/D converter and user-programmable DDC (digital downconverter) it is capable of capturing RF/IF signals with bandwidths as high as 360 MHz continuously for over four hours.
It is supplied in a small footprint portable package, measuring only 16.0” W x 6.9” D x 13.0” H and weighing just less than 30 pounds. With measurements similar to a small briefcase, this portable workstation includes an Intel Core i7 processor, a high-resolution 17″ LCD monitor and up to 15.3 TB of SSD storage.
It uses a high-powered Pentek Virtex-7-based Onyx® board that includes a PCIe Gen. 3 engine to provide data streaming for the high-speed A/D converter. Coupled with a high-performance PCIe Gen. 3 SATA III RAID controller, the unit is capable of streaming contiguous data to disk in realtime at rates up to 4.0 GB/sec
