Avnet Inc. has unveiled a new Xilinx system-on-module for prototyping and application development to reduce the time to market for production ready systems.
The XRF8 Xilinx RFSoC Gen 3 system-on-module is designed for RF applications that require a small footprint, serial connectivity and real-time processing, which is also capable of RF direct conversion of signals with analog bandwidth up to 6 GHz.
The XRF8 module can digitize 8 ADC channels at 6 giga-samples per second and generate complex waveforms through 8 D AC channels at 10 GSPS. Baseband processing and network interface are handled by the Xilinx UltraScale+ RFSoC integrated quad Arm Cortex-A53 processing subsystem and programmable logic.
The module could be used to support applications such as radar, software-defined radio, beamforming, signal detection and jamming and medical imaging.
