At the request of customers Cambridge Pixel has just released the HPx-550 VME synchro/resolver converter card. This new product supports customers with legacy synchro and resolver units.

As radar hardware can be an expensive investment, organisations often seek to extend the lifespan of their equipment as much as possible. This has become increasingly difficult with many companies opting to discontinue support for older radar models. Cambridge Pixel provides an affordable solution by including support for legacy radars in the company’s extensive range of radar interface hardware and modular software.

The new HPx-550 card has a 6U VME form factor and is available as a single or dual channel card with versions that support either high-voltage (115V/90V) or low-voltage (26V/11.8V) reference and synchro/resolver input signals. This provides a very wide range of compatibility for interfacing with most standard synchro and resolver units.

The new card extends the HPx series of radar interface hardware from Cambridge Pixel, which also includes another synchro/resolver converter daughter card suitable for connecting to a host with a PCI/PCIe form factor. HPx cards support most radar types and are available in a range of form factors. British-made, they are built for reliability and high performance.

Commenting on the launch, Cambridge Pixel's founder and managing director David Johnson said "We are pleased to be able to support an extensive range of radars, including legacy hardware. This product provides customers with an affordable alternative to replacing expensive equipment.”
