VP430 RFSoC Board


The VP430 is a 3U VPX RF processing system featuring the Xilinx® Zynq® Ultrascale+™ RF system-on-chip technology (RFSoC). The ZU27DR device used on the VP430 includes eight integrated analog-to-digital converters at 4GSPS, eight digital-to-analog converters at 6.4 GSPS, a user-programmable FPGA fabric, and multi-core Zynq ARM® processing subsystem.


  • Reduced RF Signal Chain Complexity
    • VP430 enables direct RF sampling which can be implemented in the digital domain, bringing greater flexibility and simplification to the signal processing chain
  • Maximise Input/Output Channel Density
    • VP430 has the ability to synchronise all 16 channels as well as multiple boards for even larger system applications
  • Heterogeneous processing capability
    • VP430 leverages RFSoC technology to handle, within a single module, both streaming DSP with an FPGA and decision-making & control using a general purpose processor
  • Offload Data More Efficiently
    • In addition to the PCIe Gen3 data plane, VP430 includes the option to be built with an 8-channel VITA 66.4 fiber optic interface for transfers up to 12 GB/s.
