    Wideband Downconverter: DCA27G
    GaGe downconverter systems feature a single RF input and two bandwidth mode options for 3 software selectable IF bandwidths: 10 MHz / 40 MHz / 100 MHz OR 10 MHz / 80 MHz / 160 MHz. The RF signal tuning covers 50 MHz to 27 GHz to provide unparalleled real-time signal recording and analysis capability ideally suited for use with the Razor digitizer's 16-bit resolution and variable sample rate up to 200 MS/s.

    10 MHz reference inputs and outputs on both the digitizers and downconverter units provide a single frequency reference for synchronized system performance.

    SpectraScopeRT is a Windows based spectrum analyzer application that requires no programming and allows for integrated operational control of both the downconverter receiver and the digitizer for signal capture, analysis, recordings. Analysis displays include IQ Time Domain, Frequency Domain, I Spectrum, IQ Power Spectrum, Constellation Plot, Spectrogram Plot, Persistence Plot, and Histogram Plot.

    The primary advantage of SpectraScopeRT is the ability to conduct real-time streaming signal recordings to drive storage with provided monitoring capability to ensure the recording process is operating with expected signal data and without errors.

The GaGe Razor Express CompuScope digitizer series is also available with 12-bit or 14-bit A/D resolution:

12-bit Razor Express 12X2 PCIe Digitizers
14-bit Razor Express 14X2 PCIe Digitizers
