TIM-C1 is a high-performance receiver operating at 1090MHz. The unique combination of a multi-core processor with FPGA support, allowed high-speed data processing, comparable to professional, ground-based stations to be achieved. Simultaneous miniaturization of the module and its OEM nature open a wide range of possible applications.

Basic features

  • FPGA-In-The-Loop technology for the fastest ADS-B/In implementation on a surface of ~4cm2
  • High-resolution ADC with real-time signal processing based on an adaptive algorithm; best-in-class aircraft tracking
  • ADS-B and Mode-S with a capability of receiving thousands of frames per second
  • RF power measurement for each frame (useful for distance estimation in case of Mode-S)
  • High sensitive front-end with ranges over 200 miles
  • Simple module integration - programming using high-speed UART and AT commands
  • Scalable OEM solution with enormous customization potential
  • High-speed memory interface for data storage
  • GNSS (NMEA) input for dynamic calculations of relative distances to the aircraft
  • Power supply 3.3 V, current consumption ≈200mA
  • Designed to meet the requirements of TSO-C199
  • Small outline: 23.0 x 18.0 x 2.5mm (2g weight)
  • Evaluation board available


  • SAA/DAA (Sense and Avoid / Detect and Avoid)
  • UAS ground stations
  • Mobile air traffic information devices
  • High-density traffic surveillance
  • Traffic-flow analysis and statistics
  • For systems that meet the NextGen/SESAR philosophy
