TZ3 Voice / Data Baseband Dual-Module

The TZ3 is an embedded dual-module providing baseband processing for HF and V/UHF communication.

The TZ3 offers the latest waveform and protocol standards plus cutting edge proprietary Secure Digital Voice (SDV) technology in a single unit. The dual-module is intended for integration into HF and V/UHF radio transceiver designs and other communication equipment.

The TZ3 dual-module is suitable to host ISO communications stack layers 1 to 7.


The unit is supplied with built-in DES 56-bit encryption. The TZ3 can also host the EF-256 Embedded Functions for secure Voice and data, which provides AES-256 encryption and a low-rate vocoder.

An interface for integration with a third party encryption function is provided between the two baseband processing modules.
