Product Details

The AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ high-speed analog module is designed to showcase the latest generation high-speed data converters. The AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ provides the analog front-end for a wide range of compute-intensive FPGA-based radio applications.

The AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ is an analog front end hardware platform that addresses a broad range of research, academic, industrial and defense applications. The AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ enables RF applications from 400MHz to 4 GHz. The module is customizable to a wide range of frequencies by software without any hardware changes, providing options for GPS or IEEE 1588 Synchronization, and MIMO configurations.

When combined with the Xilinx ZYNQ® Software-Defined Radio Kit, AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ enables a variety of wireless communications functions at the physical layer, from baseband to RF. With up to 4 GB of flash storage space, 512 MB of RAM, Gigabit Ethernet interface (depending on the base platform) and a Linux image built specifically for the AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ, you can get everything you need for a easy out of the box experience. The platform offers enough flexibility for many applications, and supports streaming data, and standard web interfaces to analyze transmitted RF data.


Applications

  • Electronic test and measurement equipment
  • General-purpose software radios
  • Radar systems
  • Ultra wideband satellite receivers
  • Point to point communication systems

Getting Started

X+
The AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ module comes with an SD card with the Linux image. All the customer needs is to move the right files from the SD folders to the root based on which FPGA board he is using. Once that is done and the FPGA board is ready to boot of SD card, plug the AD-FMCOMMS1-EBZ module in an LPC FMC slot and turn on the board and they are ready to go.

The advantage of this board is that it has one TX and one RX channel so to start playing around with this demo there is no need for any other equipment other than one SMA cables to loop the TX to RX and start seeing the signal in IIO-scope.
