Analog Devices launches software-defined radio (SDR) rapid prototyping kit with dual 2 x 2 AD9361 RF transceivers
Bangalore, India, August 07, 2014: Analog Devices, has released its software-defined radio (SDR) rapid prototyping kit with dual 2 x 2 AD9361 RF transceivers to simplify and rapidly prototype 4 x 4 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless transceiver applications on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC development platforms. The AD-FMCOMMS5-EBZ rapid prototyping kit provides a hardware/software ecosystem solution addressing the challenges of SDR transceiver synchronization experienced by RF and analog designers when implementing systems using MIMO architectures.
