NetAcquire Bit Sync with Clear Sync Technology
NetAcquire's new Clear Sync technology integrates a state-of-the-art bit sync front end to any NetAcquire product's field-proven PCM serial capabilities.
The Clear Sync design emphasizes data quality. Its digital design
has no analog components whose drift out of calibration would affect
performance. Each input
channel uses a low noise floor digitally controlled and tunable automatic DC offset
removal and automatic gain control (AGC). This is followed by a
super high-speed analog-to-digital (ADC) converter
having an ultra-low jitter sample clock input. The ADC runs at
higher resolution (12 bit) and higher speed (extreme multiples of the
bit rate) to extract maximum information from the input signal. This
over-sampling both in amplitude and frequency provides the ultimate
data quality input to the Clear Sync digital signal processor. The FPGA-based
digital processor implements a high precision phase detector
and a sophisticated multi-loop tracking PLL with capabilities too challenging to implement in the analog domain while
offering superior performance monitoring and software tuning. Next
generation output clock frequency synthesis tracks to better than 0.1
parts per million (0.0000001%) resulting in highly accurate bit tracking
even without data edges and even in the presence of high noise. Best of
all, as NetAcquire advances the algorithms, Clear Sync provides
in-field software and FPGA upgradeability, protecting your investment
for the long term.
Built-in enhanced diagnostics allows remote system configuration and adjustments. For example, if the programmed bit sync rate is incorrect and no data is being received, that used to mean a trip to the antenna. Now you can change any parameter from your desk.
Advanced Real-Time Graphical Status
Powered by NetAcquire
Every NetAcquire system is built on top of the advanced network-centric NetAcquire software architecture. This means that every system has built-in configuration and monitoring using any standard Web browser, security management with individual user passwords, and real-time parameter monitoring and graphing. All NetAcquire systems support software upgrades via the network so that as networking protocols change, your investment is preserved. Advanced options can include features such as decommutation, correlating source selection, data archiving, data reformatting, publish/subscribe, BERT, simulation, and time synchronization.
