Xilinx’s RFSoC brings a powerful and unique solution for addressing some of the most demanding requirements of high bandwidth, high channel count systems.  Understanding how this new technology can specifically address SWaP-C and low latency applications is key to matching it to many applications that can benefit from it the most.

This paper provides a look at how RFSoC compares to trends in A/D and D/A converters and the strategies for getting the most performance out of this new family of FPGAs.
