SMART Solutions

SMART solutions from iRF rethink the traditional industry approach to custom product development and interface management. SMART products are transportable to multiple platforms including VME, VPX, CD-ROM, brick, and standalone. Each SMART solution provides full down conversion and up conversion capabilities in the same package. SMART features the best SWaP profile of any modular architecture in the industry.


Single Channel 0.5 to 18 GHz Microwave Down Converter

rf smart deck

RF SMART Deck is the heart of SMART. It enables superior SWaP reduction, better RF performance, and cross platform portability including WideRail, VME/VPX and non-standard form factors. Coupled with our SMART iDSP Processor, the SMART Deck offers an RF to 10 GigE Software Defined Radio.
