Product Description

The Artificial Intelligence Radio Transceiver (AIR-T) is a high-performance software-defined radio (SDR) seamlessly integrated with state-of-the-art processing and deep learning inference hardware. The incorporation of an embedded graphics processing unit (GPU) enables real-time wideband digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms to be executed in software, without requiring specialized field programmable gate array (FPGA) firmware development. The GPU is the most utilized processor for machine learning, therefore the AIR-T significantly reduces the barrier for engineers to create autonomous signal identification, interference mitigation, and many other machine learning applications. By granting the deep learning algorithm full control over the transceiver system, the AIR-T allows for fully autonomous software defined and cognitive radio.

The Air-T enclosure is expertly constructed from aluminum to produce a polished, elegant, and sleek metallic silver finish. It measures 192 x 182 x 79 mm (7.5 x 7.2 3.1 inches) and the power button illuminates blue when the system is on. All RF ports are brought to the front of the enclosure for ease of use and all computer peripherals connections are brought to the rear.
