Providing a dynamically reconfigurable IC platform for rapid prototyping and adaptive use in the field
MATRICs®: RF Technology
Our high bandwidth MATRICs® microwave transceiver platform unites programmable military grade chips and multiple RF technologies into one system that can be reconfigured rapidly, even in harsh environments.
In the contested environments that U.S. armed forces face, circumstances change quickly. It is vital to have radio systems that can be easily reconfigured in the field or even automatically adapt on the fly. To provide that, our FAST Labs™ engineers developed the MATRICs® (Microwave Array Technology for Reconfigurable Integrated Circuits) RF-FPGA Transceiver in collaboration with DARPA. This innovative, powerful, and easily adaptable RF-FPGA platform is a high performance radio frequency (RF) toolbox on a chip.
The MATRICs® Transceiver offers more bandwidth and broader frequency coverage than commercially available chips and its next generation, multi-use design allows your engineers to tackle future communications, EW, and signal intelligence demands NOW. This capability empowers your team to develop custom RF systems significantly faster and at lower cost than application-specific chips from commercial developers. Choosing the MATRICs® Transceiver also lets you leverage DARPA's investment to accelerate your projects.
