[TangerineSDR] Elevator Pitch for Tangerine PSWS

Hi Kristina,

The main points of the TangerineSDR are:
Wide-band Direct Sampling DDC (four 500MByte/s digital input paths) with 
on-board FPGA
High-speed data interfaces (USB 3.0 (@5Gbps) *and* dual GBe)
Modularity and expandability (up to 4 RF input channels, selectable 
oscillator quality (TCXO/OCXO/GPSDO) and expandable low- and high-speed I/O)
Easy pairing with SBC or Desktop PC (dual GBe ports) allows inexpensive 
pre-processing and network authentication

Is that some help in filling a few hundred words? The above is more like 
a features list, so here are a few tie-ins to PSWS:
oscillator can be upgraded to GPSDO for PSWS high-resolution data 
dual, synchronously clocked 14-bit ADCs for synchronous RF sampling
seamlessly integrates with a Single-Board Computer to provide PSWS 
pre-processing and authentication
high-speed data interfaces provide wide simultaneous receive bandwidth  
(>20MHz via GBe, >100MHz USB3.0 maximum)
FPGA can split data into eight 192KHz simultaneous virtual receive 
streams, each centered anywhere within 0-60MHz antenna input

Hope some of this is helpful.
