    Overview

    The Avnet XRF16™ RFSoC System-on-Module is designed for integration into deployed RF systems demanding small footprint, low power, and real-time processing. The XRF16 features the Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC Gen3 ZU49DR, with 16 RF-ADC, 16 RF-DAC channels, and 6GHz RF bandwidth.

    Combine the production-ready XRF16 module with the XRF16 Carrier Card and Avalon™ software suite to jumpstart proof-of-concept and application development. Then deploy your system with the same XRF16 module used for proof-of-concept. Example code and tutorials demonstrate Xilinx RFSoC multi-tile sync (multi-converter sync) and multi-board synchronized analog capture. Product Brief
