FPGA Software Radio Solutions for Defense and Wireless Applications

FPGA Software Radio Solutions for Defense and Wireless Applications
Pentek announce the successful production, testing, and delivery of its first RFSoC boards to the market. The Quartz Model 5950 Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC 3U VPX Board and the Model 6001 Zynq UltraScale+ QuartzXM eXpress Module both support wideband RF analog I/O signals with eight 4 GHz A/Ds, eight 6.4 GHz D/As, and multi-core ARM processors. For 3U VPX systems, the Quartz Model 5950 uses Pentek’s Navigator Design Suite to speed software and IP development. For small or high-density deployed systems, the same IP and software can be easily transferred to the Model 6001 QuartzXM eXpress Module to support a wide range of custom form factor, SWaP-sensitive applications.
