XRF16 Xilinx RFSoC System-On-Module

16x16 Direct-RF sampling modules

Avnet XRF16™ RFSoC System-on-Modules are designed for integration into deployed RF systems demanding small footprint, low power and real-time processing. The XRF16 features an AMD Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC with direct RF sampling dataconverters and up to 6 GHz RF bandwidth.

Combine the production-ready XRF16 module with the XRF16 Carrier Card and Avalon™ software suite to jump-start proof-of-concept and application development. Then deploy your system with the same XRF16 module used for proof-of-concept. Example code and tutorials demonstrate AMD RFSoC multitile sync (multi-converter sync) and multi-board synchronized analog capture.

The XRF16 Gen3 module features a 3rd generation AMD Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC (ZU49DR), with 16 RF-ADC, 16 RF-DAC channels and 6 GHz RF bandwidth.

The XRF16 Gen2 module features a 2nd generation AMD Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC (ZU39DR), with 16 RF-ADC, 16 RF-DAC channels, and 5 GHz RF bandwidth.
