Circuit Analysis with Excel

Microsoft Excel  has features that make it handy for analog circuit analysis.  These include complex mathematics, cell labeling and the ability to overlay plots. An example of analysis of a 6th order LC bandpass filter using Excel is available on our website engineering calculators page.

Digital Radio Computer

CEPD's new Digital Radio Computer (DRC) provides a high speed platform to aid in the development and test of algorithms and signal processing applications including:

  • Digital radio, modulator/demodulator development
  • Software defined radio
  • High speed data acquisition and signal processing
  • Audio data acquisition and signal processing

The system combines a small PC platform, PCI card, FPGA signal processing card, and a down conversion IF card. All four components are integrated to complete the digital radio computer. With all the features of a PC you can transfer the data through RS232, Ethernet, and USB interfaces. 

The DRC will be available for purchase on our website soon.
