Software Defined Radio - Application Note

Software Defined Radio - Application Note

SDR is a radio communication system where components are implemented by means of software rather than by hardware. This has several advantages: it is much faster to prototype next generation radio standards; it enables on the fly changes like frequency hopping and encryption; the radio elements (mixer, filter, amplifier, modulator/demodulator) can be individually and flexibly reconfigured and it enables voice and data communication capabilities.

Well Monitoring

Well Monitoring

Requirement Summary

One of the top oilfield service companies in the world was looking to develop a data acquisition and compute system for well monitoring. Effectively monitoring well pressure, strain, and acoustics via fiber optic sensors helps them reduce maintenance costs and increase speed and efficiency of oil collection.

The data acquisition bandwidth and compute performance requirements vary between
applications so they needed a solution that gave them flexibility to configure each system. High bandwidth for data acquisition, options for low power or high performance computing and storage scalability. In addition the multitude of locations and environments that their systems must operate in create unique packaging challenges.
