Product description

The CMX7241/CMX7341 provides a common platform to support digital and analogue FDMA and 2-slot TDMA PMR/LMR.

Based on CML’s FirmASIC® component technology, a Function Image™ (FI)  upload determines the CMX7241/CMX7341 overall function and operating characteristics.  The CMX7241 and CMX7341 provide the same system functionality and can accept the same FI but are targeted at different system implementations:

  • CMX7241 is pin compatible with the CMX7141 enabling a smooth forward evolution
  • CMX7341 has a differential I/Q Rx interface for optimum performance and direct connection to CML’s CMX994A/E Direct Conversion Receiver ( DCRx) ICs

The combination of CMX7341 and CMX994A/E ICs enables a small, low cost, low power consumption multi-standard PMR/LMR system to be realised.

Four Function Images are available, these can be downloaded from the CML Technical Portal (contact for access):

  • CMX7241/7341 FI-1.x – dPMR™ and Analogue PMR Processor with Rx I/Q Support
  • CMX7241/7341 FI-2.x – DMR Air Interface Processor
  • CMX7241/7341 FI-3.x – NXDN, ARIB STD-T98/T102 and Analogue PMR Processor
  • CMX7241/7341 FI-4.x – APCO P25 and Analogue PMR Processor

CMX7341 Questions

Q: When using the CMX7341 I/Q AGC functionality, the currently used I/Q AGC step is reported back in the Aux 1 Data and Status Register ($A9).  How do these steps relate to the current actual gain settings within the CMX994A/CMX994E and CMX7341 devices?

A: The gain adjustment steps are automatically controlled by the CMX7341 when I/Q AGC is enabled.  When setting the optimal I/Q input signal level the CMX7341 will adjust its analogue input gain stage and LNA/VGA gain stages of the CMX994A/CMX994E.  The reported step gain breakdown is as follows:

AGC StepsCMX994AE LNA Gain dB
CMX994AE VGA Gain dB
CMX7341 Input Gain dB
Total Gain dB
This FAQ is applicable to Function Images 7341-1, 3 and 4.

Analogue PMR voice operation

A pair of scripts to realise analogue PMR voice transmission. Requires 2 x PE0403-734x Evaluation kits and 2 x PE0003 Controller kits.

7241/7341FI-1.1.x.x Configuration Guide

This Configuration Guide is intended to illustrate the signal routing through the CMX7241 and CMX7341 as a visual aid to configuring the device for each specific operation. It is currently specific to Function ImagesTM 7241/7341FI-1.1.x.x but will be largely suitable for later revisions. The Configuration Guide is not intended to cover all of the hardware, functions or possible set-up modes. It is a virtual representation of the device and does not reflect the true architecture.

Evaluation and Demonstration Kits



The PE0003 Evaluation Kit Interface Card is a global interface system for use with evaluation kits for CML’s new generation ICs, including FirmASIC™ based products. This greatly simplifies the approach to the evaluation and design-in process.





The PE0403 Platform Evaluation Kit is designed to assist in the evaluation and application development of the CMX724x and CMX734x ranges of FirmASIC® products.
