VP460 RFSoC Board


The VP460 is a 6U VPX RF processing system featuring the Xilinx® Zynq® Ultrascale+™ RF system-on-chip technology (RFSoC) and the latest Xilinx Virtex™ Ultrascale+ High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) FPGA device.

The RFSoC ZU29DR device used on the VP460 includes 16 integrated analog-to-digital converters at 2GSPS, 16 digital-to-analog converters at 6.4 GSPS, a user-programmable FPGA fabric, and multi-core Zynq ARM® processing subsystem. The HBM VU37P device features the speed and capabilities of an UltraScale+ FPGA plus integrated DRAM in the FPGA package capable of up to 460GB/s data transfer rates on -chip.


  • Reduced RF Signal Chain Complexity
    • VP460 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
    • VP460 has the ability to synchronise all 16 channels as well as multiple boards for even larger system applications
  • Revolutionary processing capability
    • VP460 perfectly balances the need for high performance FPGA processing, the ease of a hardened embedded processor and the ultra-low latency of integrated analog interfaces. This enables users to create advanced multi-channel electronic warfare systems, radar, and SDR applications.
  • Offload Data More Efficiently
    • In addition to the PCIe Gen3 data plane, VP460 includes up to 48 high speed serial lanes to the Xilinx Virtex Ultrascale+ HBM device supporting protocols such as PCIe Gen3, 10G Ethernet, Aurora, etc.
