Digital Intermediate Frequency Interoperability


Digital Intermediate Frequency Interoperability (DIFI) is an important feature to many of our customers. DIFI (or IEEE 4900) enables products to communicate RF data over ethernet packets. This reduces the need for A/D and D/A converters to sit on each product just to send RF data between them. While previous standards for Digital IF or Digital RF existed (VITA 49) it did not provide the constraints needed for true interoperability.

Bascom Hunter promotes the use of DIFI and is part of the DIFI Consortium helping to revise the standard and expand adoption. We can provide DIFI for your systems as firmware netlists or help develop DIFI compatible products or subsystems.
