FMC-SDR400D

The FMC-SDR400D is based on AD9361 Transceivers IC, with Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) at RX channels. Tx channels contain 20 dB amplifier IC. The platform is intended for prototyping and development of many software-defined radio applications, such as active antennas, receive beamforming, and angle of arrival systems. The board will be supported by Sundance DSP IP Core for configuring the RF devices.
