Explore How Altera is Digitizing Next Generation Radar Systems

Visit us at booth #15 during RadarCon to see how the industry's first floating point FPGAs can enable high-performance signal processing.

Watch our demonstrations to learn how:


Altera will highlight its Ultra-wideband channelizer with JESD204B interface with a signal generator. Altera is also demonstrating its radar reference designs, and the company’s full portfolio of FGPA, SoC, Enpirion power devices, and software tools that support radar system design, including the following:

  • Frequency  domain beamforming to enable wide scalability in radar front end systems.
  • Ultra-wideband channelizer with JESD204B interface with a signal generator feeding into a multi-GSPS (Giga-samples per second) Analog to Digital Converter (ADC)
  • An extended Kalman filter (EKF) algorithm implemented in an SOC FPGA for target tracking, navigation systems, adaptive control, and many other dynamic systems.
  • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Back-projection algorithm for SAR image formation
  • Time delay digital beam forming - an algorithm that provides significant advantages compared to analog beam forming including multiple simultaneous beams, instantaneous wide bandwidth and element level configurability
  • Space-time adaptive processing (STAP), a signal processing technique to achieve order-of-magnitude sensitivity improvements in target detection


Altera Arria® 10 FPGAs are the only programmable logic devices in the industry to include hardened floating point IEEE 754 DSP (digital signal processing) blocks, making them ideal for radar systems design of re-configurability and all of the advantages of DSP for each antenna element.
