Prerequisites for FMCOMMS11 board

What you need depends on what you are trying to do. As a minimum, you need to start out with:

  1. The FMCOMMS11 board.
  2. A carrier platform. ADI does not offer these boards for sale or loan, getting one yourself is normal part of development or evaluation of the FMCOMMS11. Our recommended carrier platform for FMCOMMS11 for now is the Xilinx ZC706. The fabric on this device is large, and if you are looking at targeting - this is the recommended option.
  3. Equipment needed to interact with the platform:
    1. for the ARM/FPGA SoC platforms, this normally includes attaching:
      • HDMI monitor (1080p is best) or VGA Monitor
      • USB Keyboard
      • USB Mouse (Requires a USB HUB to connect both mouse and keyboard)
      • USB Micro to Female USB-A (USB OTG)
  4. Internet connection (without proxies makes things much easier) to update the scripts/binaries on the SD Card that came with the ADI FMC Card. (Firewalls are OK, proxies make things a pain).
  5. RF Test equipment
