Upper Saddle River, NJ, May 21, 2009 --( The Model 7156 Dual Channel Transceiver is Pentek's latest PMC module, comprising two 400 MHz A/D converters with 14-bit resolution and two 800 MHz D/A converters with 16-bit resolution. Both data converters on the 7156 use new Texas Instrument monolithic devices, the ADS5474 and the DAC5688, respectively.

While this module is immediately attractive to developers of military radio transceivers with high-bandwidth channels, the wideband data converters and multichannel synchronization also directly target new wideband radar applications.
