Summation Research announces availability of advanced communications
Melbourne, Fla, January 10, 2005 - Summation Research, Inc.,
a provider of advanced equipment for data communications, wireless,
supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), satellite and
terrestrial telemetry and test equipment markets, today announced
the release of their latest advanced communications product,
the UCP-4000 Universal Communications Processor. The unit is
designed to address a variety of satellite and terrestrial communications
and telemetry applications.
The UCP-4000 is a latest-generation Digital Signal Processing
solution for high-speed, multi-function communications requirements.
With fully programmable digital logic, the product can be utilized
to solve a wide variety of communications applications, including
encoding, modulation, demodulation, clock recovery, and data
decoding/processing. The unit is designed in accordance with
IEEE P1386 standards for the Common Mezzanine Card Family, making
the UCP-4000 is an ideal daughter card arrangement for user designed
main cards, including PCI, Compact PCI, VME and other form factors.
A set of off-the-shelf user-loadable software elements allows
the product to be configured for either a versatile encoding
vector modulation system, or a multi-waveform demodulating/decoding
processor. Modulation formats supported for either transmit or
receive functions include analog PM, AM or FM, digital PM, ASK,
FSK, or PSK (B, Q, OQ, AQ, and UQ), and complex (multi-modulation
mode) waveforms. Analog bandwidths of up to 20 MHz and digital
data rates from 50 bps to 20 Mbps can be supported in the UCP-4000.
Transmit processing supports spectral purity rivaling expensive
analog solutions. Ongoing design enhancements are currently in
process to expand the capabilities up to 40 Mbps data rates.
“Summation Research is pleased to introduce the advanced
capabilities and reliability of the UCP-4000”, said Tom
Drago, Vice President of Business Operations at Summation Research. “The
flexibility of the 4000 allows it to provide transmit or receive
communication functions compatible with legacy waveforms dating
from the 1960’s to the next generation formats of the 21st
Beyond the standard software, custom processing algorithms can
also be readily added, supporting such features as spread-spectrum,
alternate coding algorithms, complex modulation formats, and
so forth. SRI technical staff has the experience, knowledge base,
and development tools required to address even the most unique
and complex of end-user requirement.
