4-Channel Serial FPDP Streaming Recorder Supports 960 Mbyte/s Data Stream

 Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged deployed subsystems for the aerospace and defense market, has introduced the new Vortex SDRxL.

A fully featured off-the-shelf four-channel Serial FPDP (sFPDP) data recorder system for sensor-to-processor streaming data applications combines a 3U rackmount controller with a reliable, scalable storage subsystem. The Vortex SDRxL data logger from Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems can record and store up to four channels of sFPDP data at rates up to 960 Mbytes/s. The Vortex SDRxL speeds the integration of high-speed data recording capabilities into subsystems designed for instrumentation recording, mission recording and SIGINT/ELINT recording and storage applications. 

 The Vortex SDRxL supports the special data storage methods required by streaming sFPDP-based sensor-to-processor applications. Captured sFPDP data is striped across multiple FC disks in an SBOD to ensure uninterrupted recording. Because the Vortex SDR storage technology by-passes the file system, it provides total control over data storage and enables high-speed data access via FC from other computers using heterogeneous operating systems. Vortex Graphical User Interface (GUI) simplifies control over the recorder. This intuitive GUI is fast to learn and easy to set up. After selecting a few parameters, a record or playback session is initiated by simply pressing a button.

 Accurate time-stamp for playback of critical data Vortex SDRxL data recorders include the RapidReplay hardware system that captures and time-stamps every incoming sFPDP data frame prior to storage. This extreme resolution time-stamping enables the accurate playback of sFPDP data needed for DSP algorithm development.

 With four channels of 240 Gbyte/s sFPDP data, the Vortex SDRxL, combined with one Vortex SBOD, can support nearly four hours of recording time. To increase the available recording time only requires the simple addition of more external Vortex 3U SBOD units. Time-stamped data is transferred via FC to the SBOD. Configured with sixteen 450 Gbyte FC disks, a single SBOD provides up to 7.2 Tbytes of storage. The highly reliable FC disks are designed for 24/7 service with MTBF of >1,600,000 hours.
