Product Description
The DR063 uses proprietary Teledyne defence Technology to provide state of the art performance in a package
measuring 130mm x 90mm x 18mm.
The DR063 provides a 12 bit absolute binary digital output word. The frequency measurement word is updated in
response to an external trigger input signal, and internally generated trigger or is continuously updated every clock
cycle. These operational modes are controlled via a serial interface.
The 12 bit frequency word offers a nominal resolution of 0.5MHz with an RMS accuracy of 2MHz for SNRs of +3dB
or better. The unique feature of the DR063 is the ability to configure the IFM during operation in order to achieve
improved frequency resolution and accuracy when capturing longer pulses under poor SNR conditions.
The DR063 has a smaller frequency footprint and lower power consumption than traditional 0.5 – 2.4GHz IFM’s.
External connections are made via a 51 – way micro-D Type connector for power, frequency measurement data and
control. An SMA (female) is provided for the RF input.

Environmental Specification
Operating temperature: –40ºC to +85ºC
Sinusoidal Vibration: 5g RMS between 50Hz to 1KHz (MIL-STD-202F Method 204)
Random Vibration: MIL-STD-810F Method 514.5.
Power Spectral Density according to figure below
Mechanical
Mechanical Shock: MIL STD 202 F - Method 213 B
Test condition: 20g / 11 ms half-sinusoidal.
Humidity: MIL-STD-810F Method 507.4. Procedure 2.
R.H. 85% to 95% Temperature between +30°C and +60ºC
Salt Fog: MIL-STD-810F Method 509.4.
Reliability: Failure Rate of 20 per million hours, which equates to an MTBF of 50,000 hours for a ARW Airborne
Rotary Wing Environment and a Failure Rate of 15 per million hours, which equates to an MTBF of 67,000 for a

Technical Information
The ability for the DR063 to be configured on the fly to suit operational scenarios offers performance
attributes unmatched by currently available IFMs. Specifically, increased resolution and accuracies can be
achieved for longer pulse durations. A number of modes of operation are available via a serial interface, these
include:
The Variable PW mode uses Teledyne propriety techniques, and as such offers improved performance levels
when compared with standard Instantaneous Frequency Measurement units currently available.
