All Programmable RF-Sampling Solutions

To achieve the performance required of the latest generation of wireless access, DOCSIS, and a plethora of other radio applications, direct RF-sampling technology holds the promise of increased flexibility and higher performance. Direct RF-sampling provides the flexibility by moving much of the RF signal processing into the digital domain, thereby eliminating much of the analog signal processing.

However, there is immense market pressure to reduce the power and footprint of these systems. The solution is to integrate RF-sampling data converters with VLSI devices using advanced CMOS technology. Xilinx All Programmable technology has long provided a highly flexible digital signal processing solution for a range of radio applications. Integrating direct RF-sampling data converters enables a highly flexible platform for radio development that also addresses many of the challenges associated with current direct RF-sampling solutions.
