CEPD had a visitor come to the window instead of the front door.  In the last newsletter we held a "choose the caption" contest.  The winner was DeWitt Harrison, who received a USB memory stick with more GB than humans should be allowed.

New Product

CEPD has new product to announce, a synthesizer prototyping module. The module is designed to allow users to quickly generate frequencies up to 600MHz for use in their designs. The module includes a synthesizer, VCO, voltage regulation and LNAs required for producing two +8dBm output frequencies. The module only requires a 12V power supply and SPI communication to configure the PLL. Our digital radio kit (DRK) is being modularized to support multiple frequency bands, and uses this synthesizer to generate local oscillators for up and down conversion to IF or baseband.


Targeted Feature List:

  • Up to 600MHz frequency generation
  • Generates 2 +8dBm outputs
  • Contains all components required for RF local oscillator generation
  • Compatible with CEPD's DRK
  • Simple interface only requires 12VDC and SPI

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

If you would like help developing a new product or if you find your project understaffed, CEPD can help you meet your deadlines. Our staff draws on years of diverse product design experience to provide creative and timely solutions for your product needs. Some of our specialties include:
  • DSP
  • Embedded Systems Hardware and Software
  • Data Acquisition
  • Wireless Sensor and Telemetry Systems (Zigbee, Cellular, VHF, Bluetooth, ANT+, etc.)
