EDN names Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC as one of its Hot 100 Products for 2017 in the “RF & Networking” Category

Every year at the end of the year for the past few decades, the staff of EDN has sifted through the thousands of electronic products they’ve written about over the past year to select the Hot 100 products for the year. In EDN’s opinion, the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC is one of the Hot 100 products for 2017 in the “RF & Networking” Category.

 

Members of the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC device family integrates multi-gigasample/sec RF ADCs and DACs, soft-decision forward error correction (SD-FEC) IP blocks, Xilinx UltraScale architecture programmable logic fabric, and an Arm Cortex-A53/Cortex-R5 multi-core processing subsystem into one chip. The Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC is a category killer for many, many applications that need “high-speed analog-in, high-speed analog-out, digital-processing-in-the-middle” capabilities due to the devices’ extremely high integration level. It most assuredly will reduce the size, power, and complexity of traditional antenna structures in many RF applications—especially for 5G antenna systems.

 

As I wrote when the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC family won the IET Innovation Award in the Communications category, “There's simply no other device like the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC on the market, as suggested by this award. “
