Xilinx takes RFSoCs to the next level for 5G, cable and radar: Page 8 of 8

With silicon shipped to multiple customers already and an early access programin place, Xilinx has announced its Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC family that features a breakthrough architecture integrating the RF signal chain into an SoC for 5G wireless, cable Remote-PHY, and radar.

Zynq RFSoCs also deliver the needed performance and adaptability for key government programs such as the Multi-function Phased Array Radar (MPAR) initiative to combine the functions of several national radar networks into a single system for aircraft and weather surveillance. Because these leading edge systems must operate in real time, the inherent integration of RF-Analog makes the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC an ideal solution. Zynq RFSoC devices are currently designed into the Rockwell Collins' Common Module beamformer for the DARPA Arrays at Commercial Time Scales (ACT) program, which aims to shorten design cycles and in-field updates, while pushing past traditional barriers for delivering radar arrays.


Modular, low latency, programmable digital radar.
