Icom IC-7300 RF Direct Sampling Radio HF/6m – IC-7300でHFの扉を開こう

Icom IC-7300 is Boorn at Tokyo 2015!「IC-7300でHFの扉を開こう」it adopts the RF Direct Sampling System – Instead of the “conventional” superheterodyne system, Icom utilizes the RF Direct Sampling System – From the brochure, the Phase Noise at 2 kHz offset is -130 dBc/Hz this equates about to 103 dB RMDR. – (dati interessanti e prospettive, da verificare !)-

FT-991_IC-7300-spectrum

The detection-channel filters in the DSP are continuously variable from 50 to 3600 Hz (50 Hz to 10 kHz for AM) and 3 user-configurable selections are provided (like FIL1-2-3)  Download Brochure  in <EN> and <JP> and <IT> link below.

Q/A at Ham Fair presentation Q1: What FPGA are you using? Xilinx or Altera? A engineer: Cannot tell // Q2: What is the A/D converter and what is its sampling frequency? A engineer: ICOM is still investigating a couple of candidates. The A/D converter sampling frequency is 122MHz.  (source: TOHOKU2008 ) (ADC’s …e.g. LTC2208 or 2209)

According to the engineer at the presentation, ICOM will start shipping IC-7300 by the end of 2015. The target price is under 150,000 JPY
