The XU-RT integrates complex, 2.5 GSPS digitizing and signal generation with real-time signal processing on an XMC IO module for demanding DSP applications. The tight coupling of the analog I/O to the Kintex Ultrascale FPGA core realizes architectures for SDR, RADAR, and LIDAR front end sensor digitizing and processing. The PCI Express system interface sustains transfer rates over 7.0 GB/s for data recording and playback as part of a high performance real-time system.
The XU-RT features a dual-channel, 14-bit 2.5 GSPS A/D and a dual-channel, 2.8 GSPS 16-bit DAC, each with bandwidth over 5 GHz for wideband, undersampling applications. Internal mixers and decimator/interpolator capabilities (respectively) support concurrent, real-time frequency conversion. The sample clock may be sourced a low-jitter internal PLL or externally via a front-panel SMA and multiple cards can be synchronized for sampling or up/down-conversion.
A Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale XCKU 060/085 with 2 banks of 2GB DRAM provide a very high performance DSP core for demanding applications such RADAR and wireless IF generation. The close integration of the analog IO, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at extremely high rates.
The XU family can be fully customized using VHDL and MATLAB and the FrameWork Logic toolset. The MATLAB BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the- loop development using the graphical, block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator.
IP logic cores are also available for SDR applications that provide multi-channel modulations for PSK and FSK systems. These IP cores transform the XU-RT module into versatile transmitter, ready for integration into your application.
Software tools for host development include C++ libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux. Application examples demonstrating the module features and use are provided, including streaming DAC samples from disk. The XU-RT can be used with the Andale high speed data record/playback system for arbitrary waveform generation from recorded data at sustained rates of 7600 MB/s.
