Can use Direct RF sampling method for 5G MMwave band ?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I was reading the following document from xilinx where they are trying to disscuss the RF direct sampling using the RF dataconverters and other blocks available in RFSoC. https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/white_papers/wp509-rfsampling-data-converters.pdf

My question is that can we use the same method of RF Direct sampling for 5G Mmwave band, where we need 400 Mhz of Bandwidth ?

I also have one more doubt, since you have mentioned in the datasheet that the maximum RF input frequency should be 4 Ghz. So, is it that we cant enter any frequency beyond that as an input to the ADC/DAC.

Thanks

Amol

ADC and DAC input/output bandwidth is 4GHz. This makes it unsuitable for direct sampling of mm wave bands
