FMC-SDR400P 6 channel RF FMC module in PCIe104 footprint

FMC-SDR400P is an RF FMC module with Six RF channels (options for 2 and 4)  of Rx/Tx in PCIe104 form factor. This module is electrically compliant to Vita57.1 HPC standard but mechanically is not. The module is based on AD9361 RF Agile Transceiver, with LNAs at RX channels. The platform is intended for prototyping and development of software defined radio systems, beamforming, angle of arrival systems, femtocell/picocell/microcell base stations.

This module can attach to Sundance’s PCIe104Z board for processing power. A complete solution for setting up the RF ICs, clocks and capturing the waveforms is available including ADI Linuzx kernel for the ARM on PCIe104Z and our custom IP core for the PL side.

Block Diagram

A complete port of ADI Linux driver to the ARM of the carrier board (PCIe104Z) is available which allows users to connect to the FMC-PCIe104Z through UART and set up the RF chip and capture the waveforms through the ADI GUI on the host PC.
