GPR Hardware Video
Posted on May 28th, 2010
In this MTU-2 project, the GPR hardware is aiming to achieve excellent performance over a wide range of frequencies (150 MHz to 4 GHz, roughly). To do this, hardware configurations with advanced features are requires. In particular, the frequency generating oscillators, which are phase-locked to a common reference crystal, need to sweep across this wide band of frequencies, while still maintaining their signal’s ‘cleanliness’. Recently we have designed (and tweaked) a new hardware using the state-of-the-art synthesiser ADF4350, from Analog Devices Ltd., to fulfil this purpose. This short video gives a ‘feel’ of how this piece of GPR hardware looks and operates. (For further details, feel free to contact Dr. Adham Naji)
