The Raptor from Rincon Research implements a 2x2 MIMO SDR (software-defined radio) in a compact 5x2.675-inch form factor by combining the capabilities of the Analog Devices AD9361 RF Agile Transceiver and the Zynq UltraScale+ ZU9EG MPSoC. The board has an RF tuning range of 70MHz to 6GHz. On-board memory includes 4Gbytes of DDR4 SDRAM, a pair of QSPI Flash memory chips, and an SD card socket. Digital I/O options include three on-board USB connectors (two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port) and, through a mezzanine board, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, two SFP+ optical cages, an M.2 SATA port, DisplayPort, and a Samtec FireFly connector. Rincon Research provides the board along with a BSP, drivers, and COTS tool support.
