ELAD FDM-S2 “Software Defined Radio” Receiver

FDM-S2 is the second radio conceived in our line of ELAD SDR Samplers.

The direct sampling receiver is based on a 122.88MHz 16bit single channel ADC converter covering HF 6m and offering the possibility to exploit the undersampling mode covering FM Broadcasting Band and exploring part of VHF Band (135-160)MHz.

Ranges and most important specs:

  • HF: 9kHz-52MHz MDS: -132dBm @14MHz, Clipping lev -8dBm
  • FM: 74-108MHz sensitivity
  • VHF: 135-160MHz MDS -137dBm @145MHz, Clipping level -19dBm

Separate antenna inputs for HF/6m and FM/VHF/Bypass ranges.

Max. DDC Bw 6144kHz (Aliasing free viewable bandwidth up to 5 Megahertz).

Currently available selectable bitstreams:
192ksps-32bit, 384ksps-32bit, 768ksps-32bit, 1536ksps-32bit, 3072ksps-32bit, 6144ksps-16bit.

Special double DDC mode of 2 x 384kHz bandwidth to be placed within one of the input ranges.

4 virtual receivers freely tunable within DDC window.

Each virtual receiver holds settings for mode, bandwidth, volume, squelch and audio output routing.
