RF Design

Consilia - Radio Frequency HW with Excellent Performance
Radio Frequency HW with Excellent Performance

Services

Our team is able to develop an RF frontend in all its product phases
  • predefinition phase (feasibility study for marketing purposes)
  • specification phase (input objectives for the product)
  • prototyping (simulations, schematic, PCB layout, communication with PCB producer and assembly house)
  • series production (testing)
  • phase-out (EOL components substitution)

Experience

Team with more than 18 years’ on-going development
  • low noise receivers (diversity possible when needed)
  • transmitters (including PA up to ~100W)
  • customized high-end solutions close to aero-space performance
  • customized oscillators
  • interference trouble-shooting (elimination of the spurious)

Software Defined Radio

Competence in RF frontends for SDR platforms
  • radio frequency range up to 8GHz (further extension possible)
  • Xilinx and Intel (Altera) FPGA portfolios including design in VHDL and Verilog
  • Our team is used to create a PCB with debugging capabilities including standard interfaces (e.g. JTAG)
  • Transfer of the data via e.g. JESD204, further post-processing in FPGA or in PC
  • Long-term experience with standard communication interfaces like SPI, I2C etc.

Oscillators

High performance oscillators
  • our products overcome the standard market products in performance/price ratio
  • customized design (discrete components) or usage of fully integrated ICs
  • excellent spectral mask
  • design of high-Q resonator circuits with a reasonable BOM cost
  • usage of PLL chips (both integer and fractional synthesis)

Design Tools

Main design tools used during the development:
  • Cadence Allegro, Altium, Mentor Expedition
  • AWD MWO
  • Version control - svn, git, JIRA
  • proprietary SW tools for HW control, data downloading and displaying
  • our lab owns RF generators, spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes
