Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC Development Kit with Qorvo RF Front End

The Avnet Zynq® UltraScale+TM RFSoC Development Kit enables system architects to explore the entire signal chain from antenna to digital using tools from MathWorks and industry-leading RF components from Qorvo. We extend the functionality of the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC ZCU111 Evaluation Kit by adding a Qorvo 2-Channel RF Front-end 1.8 GHz Card for over-the-air transmission, plus native connection to MATLAB® & Simulink® with Avnet's RFSoC Explorer® application.

Kit Includes
