Core hardware and software components, already designed and tested, are available under royalty-free licenses as part of Vanteon’s service offering to jumpstart advanced electronics design projects.

This “licensable intellectual property” can be adapted by Vanteon’s engineering teams to meet specific client requirements — shortening time-to-market and reducing total development costs for our clients. In some instances, our licensable IP has provided a platform for new generations of products.

Depending on the project, the Vanteon IP used can be provided to the Client as part of the project deliverables. The Client can then modify and reuse it as they wish in future product developments, with or without Vanteon’s support.

Software Defined Radio


The Vanteon vPrisum™ Software defined Radio (SDR) platform provides a highly integrated, but very flexible, system for high performance signal processing applications, at a reasonable cost. The platform consists of a single module that includes all digital and RF circuitry.

vPrisum is built around a Xilinx Zynq FPGA and Analog Devices AD9361 integrated wideband RF transceiver to obtain an impressive price/size/performance ratio. The design is capable of dual transmit and dual receive full duplex with some of the following specifications:

  • Support for bandwidths up 56 MHz
  • Broad RF frequency range from 70 MHz to 6 GHz with minimal to no hardware modification
  • Capable of supporting thousands of endpoint radios per second
  • Excellent sensitivity (function of selected waveform) through <1 dB Noise Figure
  • Transmit power up to 30 dBm


The vChameleon™ SDR can be configured for a wide variety of characteristics and behaviors required by the situation, providing a highly integrated, very small but ultra-flexible radio platform. vChameleon™ is perfect for high performance RF signal processing applications, at a uniquely low cost point for an agile SDR.

vChameleon™ is built around a Xilinx Zynq FPGA and Analog Devices AD936x integrated wideband RF transceiver to obtain an impressive price/size/performance ratio. The design is capable full duplex with some of the following specifications:

  • Support for bandwidths up 10 MHz
  • Broad RF frequency range from 70 MHz to 2.36 GHz with minimal to no hardware modification
  • Capable of supporting thousands of endpoint radios per second
  • Excellent sensitivity (function of selected waveform) through <2 dB Noise Figure
  • Transmit power up to 30 dBm


Vanteon has developed many different soft cores for uniform and non-uniform channelizers. These include banks of Digital Up and Digital Down Conversion with efficient folded filter banks with highly resource efficient multi-rate filter designs. Other channelizers include polyphase channelizers and other highly efficient non-uniform based cores.

Other SDR waveform/modem and DSP Intellectual Property (IP) soft cores include:

  • Digital modulation including AM/FM, ASK, FSK, GFSK, BPSK, QPSK, DQPSK, 8-PSK, CPFSK, 16QAM, 64QAM, MSK, 8VSB, OFDM
  • Channel Coding including DSSS, Hamming control coding, Reed Solomon, Convolutional/Viterbi coding, LDPC encoding, and more
  • Synchronization cores including matched filter correlators, carrier recovery, timing recovery, AGC, Costas Loop, and more
  • Filtering to include FIR, IIR, Multi-rate (Polyphase, Halfband, CIC), Overlap Add / Overlap Save (fast convolution), and more
  • Multipath mitigation including deconvolution, Decision Feedback Equalizer (DFE), and LMS Adaptive Filtering
  • Other generic SDR work completed includes signal analysis, modulation detection, spectrum analysis, pulse compression, signal cancellation, acoustic feature extraction, DPD, and more.

IoT, IIoT


Vanteon Gateway™ is a modular bridging platform designed to translate between common wireless interfaces and protocols for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The Gateway™ platform utilizes a Sitara ARM core processor and includes many standard wired and wireless communication interfaces such as Ethernet, USB, WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Dust Networks and Cellular (2G-4G). Other non-standard or Ad-Hoc standard wireless interfaces are supported through adapter modules such as LoRa, Wi SUN, and proprietary narrowband using built in universal connector interfaces and Vanteon’s own vImpulse and vImpulse2™ radios.

Software


The Vanteon vImpulse™ and vImpulse2™ radios are software configurable radio transceiver modules designed for long range data communications with very low power consumption for battery operated devices. These radio modules are intended for Industrial IoT endpoint applications where high reliability, low cost, and extremely low power are key features.


vImpulse™ specs:

  • Frequency of operation: 850 MHz to 930 MHz
  • Transmit power: up to 1 W
  • Receive Noise figure: <2 dB
  • Size: Approximately 2 square inches
  • Sleep current: Capable of less than 2 µA
  • Signaling rates up to 1 Mbps


vImpulse2™ specs:

  • Frequency of operation: 850 MHz to 930 MHz
  • Transmit power: up to 1 W
  • Receive Noise figure: <2 dB
  • Size: Approximately 1 square inch
  • Sleep current: Capable of less than 1 µA
  • Signaling rates up to 2 Mbps
