FDA-160i Advanced Distribution Amplifier

FDA-160i-mockup-sm

The FDA-160i is a general-purpose frequency distribution amplifier designed for use with Brandywine high precision time and frequency sources. The FDA-160i is contained in a compact IU rack-mount chassis. The FDA accepts two sets of inputs, comprising the reference frequency (typically 1-20MHz) and status from the source. The FDA provides automatic changeover should one of the on-line source inputs fail. Manual source select override is available on the front panel, or through the Ethernet interface. A variety of status indicators are located on the front panel for instant visual feedback, together with manual controls for source selection. A 10/100 base T Ethernet interface provides full control over the functionality of the system, including reference selection and output amplitude (on a per channel basis). User control of the unit is via a built-in Web Browser with user-friendly graphical interface, or via SNMP for system applications. Applications for the FDA-160i include secure communications systems, manufacturing facilities, digital television broadcasting and any system requiring highly reliable frequency outputs.
