Abstract
Colorado Engineering, Inc (CEI) is a woman owned business with a wealth of engineering expertise in the development of ASICs, boards, software and systems for DOD radar sensor systems. In recent years a lot of signal processing applications have been implemented with a homogeneous general purpose processor environment. The driving forces for utilizing these technologies in radar signal processing architectures have been programmability and I/O flexibility. These systems lack the processing speed and latency generated by hardware specific systems that utilize FPGAs and Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC). These technologies execute signal processing functions on data in pipelined fashion analogous to an analog receiver. This yields the lowest latency system, which is a critical requirement in real-time radars. In most cases, this is by far is the best implementation for performance, cost, power and size. While historic FPGAs systems have programmability, they haven't had flexible I/O. The Radar Advanced Receiver/ Exciter architecture designed in this proposal satisfies the need for programmability, I/O configuration, power, and size, while maintaining the highest performance and the lowest latency.
