  • San Francisco, CA (March 8, 2005) ─ Today at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco, California, SBS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBSE), a leading designer and manufacturer of embedded computer solutions, is continuing its role as an embedded computer industry market leader by announcing the newest member of its TS Series high-performance field programmable gate array (FPGA) computing line. The TS-Series Software Defined Radio Development Kit uses dual Altera Stratix EP1S80 FPGA computing devices offering SDR engineers the ideal platform to rapidly develop software defined radio applications without the high cost of custom hardware development. "The addition of a software defined radio kit to the SBS TS Series FPGA computing line offers engineers an out of the box solution for high performance SDR signal processing. This development kit is a perfect choice for radio system designers creating the next generation of military, public safety and homeland security radio applications," said Ron Strauss, General Manager of SBS Canada. About the TS-Series SDR Development Kits Targeted at high-performance software defined radio applications, the TS-DK-SDR1 Kit is a highly integrated SDR development kit consisting of the TS Series 6U CompactPCI single board computer with two Commercial Grade C7 Speed Grade dual EP1S80 FPGA computing devices and two PMC sites for expansion, the Wave FPGA software tool kit and Altera's soft-core Nios® processor SOPC Builder tool kit. Red River's Model 309 PMC Flex Receiver Plus A/D dual channel front-end digitizer and Model 919 dual DAC broadband analog signal generator mezzanine module complete the TS Series SDR development kit. For an even more complete SDR development environment, the TS-DK-SDR2 includes all of the TK-DK-SDR1's components and adds an SBS CT8 Intel® Pentium® III SBC and a 6U CPCI chassis giving SDR engineers a complete signal processing development package. Price and Availability: Available now, the TS-Series Software Defined Radio Kit comes in two versions: TS-DK-SDR1: TS Series 6U CPCI dual EP1S80 FPGA Development Kit integrated with Red River 309 A/D and 919 D/A modules - US$40,000.
