This page will detail the prototype hardware that ADI is developing to prove out and prototype this reference design. The hardware is composed of 2 main platforms:
Each platform is composed of 4 primary pieces of hardware:
Additional pieces of hardware will be needed, such as cables, test equipment and power supplies.
With these 4 key pieces of hardware, the full signal chain (including Digitizer) can be evaluated for functionality and performance. Additionally, all control of the signal chain is conducted from a central location (FPGA on the ZCU102), which allows for coordinated control system prototyping.
