I've seen it on every Escort detector I've ever owned. In looking at tear-down photos here, I think I've seen it used by other brands also.Was going to say I'm pretty sure I've seen it on disassembled M3s and perhaps a few other M antenna boards.
The V1 uses a compound parabolic condenser for detecting laser. It makes it insanely good at sniffing it out in about 6ms. The catch is it's laser we're talking about and the V1 doesn't jam.managed to find it, it seems to be a 5mm one compared to 12mm on the V1
Uniden DSP Board:His point about DSP being important is absolutely correct, but I have no idea where the "secret sauce magic FPGA," LNA, or "the most complex algorithms I have seen" commentary came from.
See for yourself; Analog Devices 400mhz Blackfin DSP in both Stinger and the R3. Nothing is unique about the DSP hardware design. The R3 is simply pairing a good horn with a decent processor and a good dsp (faster than most competition).
The first picture is the Uniden DSP board (located under the horn); second pic is the Stinger VIP.
