SDRlab 122-16

SDRlab 122-16 was developed specifically for software-defined radio and more demanding RF applications.

It comes with two 16-bit 50-ohm inputs and 14-bit 50-ohm outputs, Xilinx Zynq 7020 FPGA for real-time processing capabilities plus an ultra-low phase noise 122.88MHz clock which makes it more hardware-compatible with HPSDR compliant applications. RF inputs are optimized for minimal distortion, noise and crosstalk which significantly improves reception and broadens the choice of antenna.
