Abstract

A high-performance FFT processor for spectrometer applications in space has been designed, implemented and tested. The wideband spectrometer five (WBS V) implements a 1 k-point FFT in a Microsemi RTG4. Operating with dual 2.4 Gsamples/s ADCs it provides 2 GHz bandwidth with a FFT bin size of 2.4 MHz. The architecture, implementation and results of this spectrometer are described.
