Find Your Perfect sidekiq™

Sidekiq™ VPX410

This SDR transceiver module is CMOSS/SOSA-aligned and offers a multi-channel RF tuner solution in a single 3U VPX slot. Delivering rapid situational awareness up to 18 GHz in 3U VPX form, it's your go-to for SIGINT/EW/Communications applications.

Sidekiq™ VPX400

This SDR transceiver module is based on Analog Devices’ ADRV9009 RF transceiver chip. With a wide tuning range of 1 MHz to 6 GHz, it can be used for a variety of applications.

APPLICATIONS

Perfect for a Range of Applications

VPX Standard
VPX is an ANSI standard that breaks from the traditional VMEbus connector scheme. In comparison to PCIe and Gigabit Ethernet, VPX retains the compact VME 3U and 6U formats while replacing parallel buses with fast, highly reliable serial ones.
Defense Applications

The high frequency capability on Sidekiq™ VPX410 is uniquely suited to applications that require extremely large amounts of signal processing such as those found in electronic warfare (EW), military sensor processing, radar, and cognitive radio.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Software-Defined Radio (SDR)?

SDR is a radio communication system in which components traditionally implemented in hardware are instead implemented (via custom software) on a personal device or embedded computer system. SDR systems can be adapted to integrate with various communication applications. Once integrated, SDRs can be used to scan for radio frequencies, listen to FM radio, track aircraft with ADS-B, receive GPS signals, dabble in amateur radio, decode digital voice, and even bounce signals off the moon!
