About Datum Systems

Datum Systems is a small, but highly respected company in the heart of Silicon Valley that designs and manufactures innovative satellite communications ground equipment for SCPC, MCPC and VSAT point-to-point or point-to multipoint networks. We specialize in reliable high performance satellite modems for a variety of Government and Commercial applications, including IP data, VOIP, cellular backhaul, banking, distance learning, disaster recovery and business-to-business enterprise.

Experience and Know-how:

We have over 30 years of electronic design experience and familiarity with sophisticated communications systems, microwave equipment and RF designs up to 14 GHz. Datum Systems also writes all of its own software in-house. Our modems include multiple embedded processors running reliable sophisticated real time software written entirely in assembly language. It is fast, virtually bug free and does not require a "reset" function to correct its mistakes. Our 100 MIPS digital signal processor with integrated software is how we achieve the fastest acquisition on the market.

Our Product Design Philosophy:

We manufacture the highest quality and most reliable modem in the industry by concentrating solely on satellite modems. Our modem products are rigorously designed to provide the absolute best performance at the lowest cost. Datum Systems equipment is also engineered to be built extremely efficient.

The electronic design features zero adjustments, and comprehensive digital processing. Extensive use of Digital Signal Processing and FPGA's keep the complexity hidden inside high reliability chips. Our hallmark is our direct modulation and demodulation, which gives us superior performance with fewer parts and higher integration. We directly modulate and demodulate at 70 MHz, 140 MHz and also at L-Band. Most of the signal processing is accomplished in Field Programmable Gate Arrays or FPGA's. The design of these incorporates communications and logic processes written in high level hardware design language.
