Cyan

Cyan is the highest performing COTS SDR available.

Providing simultaneous support for up 16, fully independent, transmit or receive radio channels, each with a standard 1 GHz of RF bandwidth and support for up to 3 GHz, and up to 16 bit converters, this flexible platform can tune from near DC to 18 GHz. The digital throughput includes four 40GBASE-R qSFP ports to quickly receive and transmit radio data with an option to upgrade to four 100GBASE-R.

Different options are available for Cyan to extend the number of DSP channels or enable higher bandwidth. These include:
  • Cyan EC (extended channel): enables 4 DSP channels per radio chain
  • Cyan HB (high bandwidth: provides 3 GHz sampling bandwidth per radio chain and 4 x 100 Gbps of digital backhaul
All configurations of Cyan can also be paired with one of our host and storage solutions for recording, storage, analysis, and playback.
