MIMO platform for advanced communications and PNT applications

The A2300 is a multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) transceiver module incorporating two wideband Field Programmable RF (FPRF) transceivers (300 MHz to 3.8 GHz) from Lime Microsystems, 10-axis accelerometer, gyro, compass and barometer sensors, and a large programmable FPGA capable of over 300 MiB/sec sustained communications with a host processor via USB 3.0 interface. The module’s nine integrated RF path options and low size, weight, and power characteristics contribute to ease of integration and portability.

Accommodating both internal 1 PPM TCXO or external frequency reference, multiple A2300s can be inter-connected via an expansion port and/or UART interface, supporting real-time reception / transmission of 4, 6, 8 or more signals without the need for significant additional hardware. With on-board flash for storing developer customizable firmware and FPGA logic, the A2300 can be configured to operate in a variety of different power profiles, maximizing battery life without requiring a host processor.

Modules supplied by Loctronix will be factory-programmed with only the RF receiver capabilities enabled. Developers can enable transmit functionality by modifying the firmware and waveforms.
