XRF8 Xilinx RFSoC Gen3 System-On-Module

8x8 Direct-RF sampling module

The Avnet XRF8™ RFSoC System-on-Module is designed for integration into deployed RF systems demanding small footprint, low power and real-time processing. The XRF8 features the AMD Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC Gen3 ZU47DR, with 8 RF-ADC, 8 RF-DAC channels and 6 GHz RF bandwidth. Modules can be ordered with the ZU48DR RFSoC to enable 8x soft-decision forward error correction (SD-FEC) units.

Combine the production-ready XRF8 module with the XRF8 Carrier Card and Avalon™ software suite to jump-start proof-of-concept and application development. Then deploy your system with the same XRF8 module used for proof-of-concept. Example code and tutorials demonstrate AMD Xilinx RFSoC multitile sync (multi-converter sync) and multi-board synchronized analog capture.
