NAT-AMC-ZYNQUP-SDR RF Interface card for Software defined Radio

The NAT-AMC-ZYNQUP-SDR is a flexible software defined radio (SDR) platform for wireless applications, such as mobile cellular systems with massive MIMO or radio beamforming, which require a large number of phase-coherent antennas.

The synchronization of multiple SDR boards enables the user to create large antenna arrays with RF phase-coherent radio channels. The on-board Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ FPGA provides a powerful general-purpose ARM-CPU, field-programmable hardware accelerators (FPGA, DSP, and GPU) and flexible IO for signal and base band processing.

The combination of large bandwidth RF-transceivers and a powerful FPGA allows you to create 5G radio units with on-board PHY layer processing or NB-IoT/LTE full-network single-board solutions with base station and core network processing.
