Otava Beamformer IC Evaluation Kit

Ground-breaking device for mmW and 5G

The Otava Beamformer IC Evaluation Kit allows for the rapid evaluation of the Otava OTBF103, a ground-breaking device for mmW and 5G development, in a lab environment. The kit includes the Otava Beamformer Evaluation Board, a MicroZed SOM based on the Zynq 7010 SoC, supporting hardware and a custom GUI. Using the MicroZed and GUI software, engineers can immediately focus on manipulating the RF signals and evaluating the Beamformer IC. The control interface has been fully implemented and the device can be controlled from a PC using USB or Ethernet.
