Da Kenwood Italia – (IT) Cenni storici sulle Radio-Ammiraglie KENWOOD: Il debutto del TS-900 nel 1973 ha inaugurato la tradizione della classe ammiraglia dei ricetrasmettitori HF KENWOOD per uso amatoriale, che ha prodotto il TS-930, il TS-940 ed il TS-950. Progettato per l’esigenze del mercato Amateur Radio HF, il nuovo TS-990 ora si pone l’obiettivo di diventare il prodotto TOP dei DX’ers…. (vedere il comunicato e dati con il link più sotto IT)
Der TS-990S hauptempfänger arbeitet nach dem Down-Conversion-Prinzip und ist mit einem neuen Mischer und neuen Schmalband-Roofing-Filtern ausgestattet, sodass ein IP3 von +40 dBm erreicht wird, was einen Spitzenwert darstellt. - Erstmals besitzt ein Transceiver ein Dual-TFT-Display – mit Bandscope, NF-Scope, S-Meter und vielem mehr – dies führt zu besserer Darstellung und unbeschwertem Funkbetrieb. (Markteinf.g Ende Februar 2013)
TS-990S Main Receiver – The first mixer circuit, at the heart of the main receiver, is equipped with a new double balanced grounded switch type mixer.
In order to prevent distortion when there is a large input signal, the signal route up to the first mixer includes sophisticated circuitry with carefully selected components – such as large-core toroidal coils and relays for signal switching between bands – resulting in a third-order intercept point of +40dBm (source: JVC Kenwood brochure) – Please click the pictures diagram to enlarge!
TS-990S 200W Trasmitter – The push-pull circuit utilizes VRF150MP 50V power MOSFETs to deliver a stable output of 200W on all bands. Engineers have determined the bias and matching conditions that ensure maximum possible benefit from the characteristics of the VRF150MP.
Built-in automatic antenna tuner (ATU) is of the preset type and employs the relay approch, acclaimed for rapid operation. Cooling system capable of providing ample airflow to each unit. The TS-990 employs five independent variable-speed fans (.. IC-7700 employs Quad-fans!) are employed for the Switching Power Supply, the PA final section, and the ATU antenna tuner.

TS-990S HF/50MHz Dual receiver & Dual TFT display Available Winter 2012. – Update !! New Video by JVC Kenwood (ENG version) 11/ott/2012 - On the Kenwood TS-990S one of the noteworthy planning policies is improvement of fundamental receive performances and a drastic modification to the external appearance.
TS-990S Demo Video | JVCKENWOOD (ENG Version)
TS-990S JVC info: Down-conversion system on all receiving bands – Different bands can be received separately at once on the main and the sub – The sub-receiver uses TS-590S receiver – Three 32bit floating-point arithmetic DSP (One ADSP-21369 SHARCH Processor 400MHz SIMD Core, capable of 2.4 GFLOPS peak; two ADSP-21363 SHARCH 333 MHz SIMD Core, capable of 2 GFLOPS peak) – Separate main and sub receiver instead of traditional VFO A-B – Two TFT Display… and more!
Receiver performance is one of the key indicators that is used to evaluate a transceiver. And, above all, the capability to protect against interference from adjacent signals close to the target signal is of the utmost importance. On the TS-990S thre RF filter systems protect the early stages of the main receiver from overload caused by strong out-of band signals (RF BPF – Pre Selector combine and five Roofing Filters after the 1st mix) – The Preselector is a variable bandpass filter that can be inserted or not after a series of fixed bandpass filters.
Main Receiver: Full down conversion (IF: 8.248MHz) – Newly-developed mixer IP3: +40dBm class – Roofing filters (270Hz/500Hz/2.7kHz/6kHz/15kHz) – Sub Receiver: Up/Down conversion (similar to TS-590 system) – Simultaneous dual receive. – Source Kenwood-electronics Co.Uk Leaflet ENG – Download here (link to ML&S Uk)

FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDRs which are ordered now from our On-Line Store are slated for delivery in the 2nd quarter of 2013 - (news by FlexRadio Systems)
FLEX-6700 & FLEX-6500 Signature con potenza di elaborazione “built-in”: montano la Xilinx Virtex-6®, una FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) di alto livello, un microprocessore Texas Instruments™ DaVinci™ Digital Media Processor che incorpora un processore ARM Cortex™-A8 CPU (con processore NEON™) a 1,4GHz (1,2GHz nel FLEX-6500) ed un coprocessore DSP a 32 bit in virgola mobile da 1,2GHz (1,0GHZ nel FLEX-6500). – !! Download the Brochure ENG (FlexRadio) or IT (WoodBoxRadio) PDF link below
The FLEX-6700 and FLEX-6500 coming soon, build package was released to AMS for materials procurement and pre-production engineering start-up !! – (Source: Flex Insider-Issue 2-3/2012) - FlexRadio Signs Manufacturing Partner: (AMS) – Austin Manufacturing Services located in Austin the same business complex with FlexRadio.
AMS’ is ISO 9001 certified contract manufacturer of board and system level electronic. AMS’ offers considerable expertise and experience in complex, multi-technology, multi-configuration PCB assemblies. - Link to: AMS’s – Services Web-page
The FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios employ a Direct Sampling receiver architecture while the FLEX-Series radios (FLEX-5000, FLEX-3000, FLEX-1500) are Direct Conversion receiver and the RF signal is presented to a QSD – Quadrature Sampling Detector a balanced mixer of sorts. – QSD receivers are only limited by the bandwidth of the audio ADC’s and balance issues in the detector.
By comparison, the FLEX-6000 Signature Series takes the conversion of RF to digital to a new level – Direct Sampling. Using high bandwidth ADCs, the entire HF spectrum from 10kHz to 77MHz is sampled at the same time (plus 135MHz-165MHz in the FLEX-6700).
In the FLEX-6000, the Spectral Capture Unit (SCU) performs this function in real time delivering the digitized RF spectrum to the radio’s Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) for additional processing. -
[Note] Inside the SCU are three main functions: filtering, level control and digitization. The Flex-6500 Flex-6700 packs more built-in digital signal process power than ever before imagined in an amateur radio transceiver - The Xilinx® Virtex®-6 FPGA works in tandem with a Texas Instruments® DaVinci® Digital Media Processor that includes a 1.4 GHz (1.2 GHz on FLEX-6500) ARM Cortex®-A8 CPU with NEON® floating point coprocessor!
On the FLEX-6000′s the SCU’s job is to take the off-air signal from an antenna jack on the radio and convert it into the best digital signal possible. – The input to each SCU is one of the many antenna or receiver connectors on the radio. Coming out of the SCU is an incredible volume of digital data 3.93 Gbps for each SCU. – Just for comparison purposes, this data would fill forty of your typical 100Mbps Ethernet cables (LAN).
Retail pricing USA as follows –> FLEX-6500: $4299 / FLEX-6700R: $6399 / and the FLEX-6700: $7499
Retail pricing UK as follows –> FLEX-6500: £3449 / FLEX-6700R: £4799 / and the FLEX-6700: £5799

——Clik the small images 1, 2, 3, 4 to enlarge , and read below ———–
1) IF-DSP TMS320C6726B – The TS-590S employs DSP from the IF stage onward. Kenwood was the fi rst to offer DSP-based IF AGC in an Amateur radio (TS-870) and this DSP technology has been further enhanced for the TS-590S, resulting in the development of a unique approach to IF AGC.
2 – 4) Roofing Filter BW type up/down conv. – The TS-590S comes equipped with a 500 Hz and 2.7 KHz BW 6-pole MCF. This results in superb dynamic range when adjacent signals are present, performance that was not previously possible using up conversion
3) IMD3 level to 14.2MHz – Mode CW, BW500Hz, Pre-Amp OFF , Two-Tone Spacing (Variable 2 to 100kHz) – See the IMD3 diagram, the orange line marks = 106 dB !! So even when an interfering signal approaches the target frequency, a virtually flat dynamic range is maintained.
The innovative Receiving scheme: Kenwood Down/Up conversion in a single receiver! (almost like the Elecraft K3 – TenTec OrionII and at least Yeasu FTdx5K )
On the 15, 20, 40, 80 or 160 meter band, the TS-590S employs down conversion for the first IF (11.374 MHz), when receiving in CW/FSK/SSB modes down conversion is selected automatically. Having the 1st Roofing Filter (6 kHz BW) directly after the Mixer enhances the noise blanker’s ability to deal with adjacent off-frequency signals. What really determines RX performance is the 2nd Roofi ng Filter (2.7 kHz or 500 Hz), after the post amplifier. Follows the 2nd IF (24kHz ) for Digital Signal Processing with new approach to IF AGC control. [!! Test drive the transceiver, will tell the truth]
No uses traditional PLL and VCO – For the 1st local oscillator frequency (25.374 MHz), instead of employing conventional PLL/VCO, the output of a DDS (Direct Digital Synthesizer) is supplied directly to the following 1st Mixer.

Circuit Type: VFO-A Double-conversion superheterodyne – VFO-B Triple-conversion superheterodyne – Inrmediate IF’s: VFO-A 9 MHZ/30 kHz (24 kHz for AM/FM) – VFO-B 40.455 MHz/455 kHz/30 kHz (24 kHz for AM/FM)
The Main RX (VFO A) is a two-stage down-conversion design – Yaesu engineers take the down-conversion architecture, only for Main RX A, with narrow ham-band filtering for superior close-in dynamic range. – (Like K3 Elecraft and Orion II Ten-Tec – …US made!)
