    Avnet's PicoZed™ SDR 2x2 is a Software Defined Radio (SDR) that combines the Analog Devices AD9361 integrated RF Agile Transceiver™ with the Xilinx Z7035 Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC. In a handheld form-factor PicoZed SDR provides frequency-agile wideband 2x2 receive and transmit paths in the 70 MHz to 6.0 GHz range, making it ideal for a broad range of fixed and mobile SDR applications. Integrating the critical RF signal path and high-speed programmable logic in a fully-verified system-on-module (SOM), PicoZed SDR forms the RF-to-baseband signal processing core of a wireless communications system, allowing you to focus on the differentiating features of your product. With available carrier cards for fast prototype and supported by robust simulation and code generation tools that integrate seamlessly with Xilinx Vivado® Design Suite, PicoZed SDR enables dramatic reduction in design cycles of your software-defined radio products.


    Production-ready module System-on-Module designed for immediate prototype and quick integration in your end application.  Industrial temperature rated and tested against MIL-STD 202G methods for Thermal, Vibration, and Shock.


    Low-power Designed with a -2LI version of the Zynq SoC (low power, mid speed, industrial temp), DDR3L, and high-efficiency voltage regulators. Built-in sequencing and monitoring make it easy to power to the module. Just provide 5V for system power, and the appropriate I/O voltage to the banks used in your design.


    High bandwidth data connectivity Move data quickly with dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB2.0, four 6.6 Gb/s serial links (PCIe x4, SFP+, others), and high-speed LVDS I/O for custom interfaces.


    Wideband, frequency agile RF Uses the AD9361 to provide a highly integrated radio that enables wideband 2x2 MIMO receive and transmit paths from 70 MHz to 6.0 GHz with tunable channel bandwidth <200kHz to 56MHz.


    Programmable SoC Embedded processing with the Zynq Z-7035 SoC provides a Dual ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ running at 800MHz, with built in peripherals like USB, Gigabit Ethernet, and memory interfaces.


    Small form factor 100mm x 62mm footprint, compliant with DP10062 “Sick of Beige v1.0” enclosures from


    Operating systems Comes with Analog Devices Linux reference design for Zynq, bootable from an SD card.  Also supports Linux, Android, FreeRTOS, eCos, VxWorks and others.


    Development tools A broad range of SDR prototype and development environments are supported, including Analog Devices Linux Applications, and MATLAB® and Simulink® for data streaming and Zynq targeting.
