The recent introduction of the groundbreaking Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC means that there are big changes in store for the way advanced RF and comms systems will be designed. With as many as 16 RF-class ADCs and DACs on one device along with a metric ton or two of other programmable resources, the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC makes it possible to start thinking about single-chip Massive MIMO systems. A new EDN.com article by Paul Newson , Hemang Parekh, and Harpinder Matharu titled “Realizing 5G New Radio massive MIMO systemsteases a few details for building such systems and includes this mind-tickling photo:
