The combination of data recording and playback capabilities in a single unit makes the RTS 2502 especially valuable for developers, according to Pentek vice president Rodger Hosking. “Instead of using simulated signals and signal analysis tools during system development of radar or communication systems,” said Hosking, “engineers take the RTS system into the field to capture and generate real-world signals in real time for direct validation of both signal-processing algorithms and system hardware.” He added that both the recording and playback functions use an industry-standard 2-gigabit Fibre Channel interface to either a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) or just a bunch of disks (JBOD) storage system. “Recording time is limited only by the size of the hard drives and it easily scales to different applications,” Hosking said.
