New Xilinx Eval Kit - The Ideal RF Development Platform

Xilinx (United States) - The Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC ZCU208 Evaluation Kit is the ideal RF test platform for both out-of-box evaluation and cutting-edge application development. This kit features a Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC ZU48DR, which integrates eight 14-bit 5GSPS ADCs, eight 14-bit 10GSPS DACs, and eight soft-decision forward error correction (SD-FEC) cores designed to jumpstart RF class applications. The combination of Arm® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex-R5 subsystems, UltraScale+ programmable logic, and the highest signal processing bandwidth in a Zynq UltraScale+ device, makes the ZCU208 evaluation kit the most comprehensive RF Analog-to-Digital signal chain prototyping platform.

Target Applications:

  • Remote PHY for Cable Access
  • Early Warning Phased Array Radar / Digital Array Radar
  • Satellite Communications
  • 5G Wireless
  • Test & Measurement
  • All High Performance RF Applications

Key Features:
