Avnet has just announced the 1x1 version of its PicoZed SDR 2x2 SOM that you can use for rapid development of software-defined radio applications. The 62x100mm form factor for the PicoZed SDR 1x1 SOM is the same as that used for the 2x2 version but the PicoZed SDR 1x1 SOM uses the Analog Devices AD9364 RF Agile Transceiver instead of the AD9361 used in the PicoZed SDR 2x2 SOM. Another difference is that the 2x2 version of the PicoZed SDR SOM employs a Xilinx Zynq Z-7035 SoC and the 1x1 SOM uses a Zynq Z-7020 SoC.

One final difference: The Avnet PicoZed SDR 1x1 sells for $549 and the PicoZed SDR 2x2 sells for $1095. So if you liked the idea of the original PicoZed SDR SOM but wished for a lower-cost entry point, your wish is granted, with immediate availability.
