SKU: Model 5950 Category:


The Quartz Model 5950 is a high-performance 3U OpenVPX board based on the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC FPGA. The RFSoC integrates eight RF-class A/D and D/A converters into the Zynq’s multiprocessor architecture, creating a multi channel data conversion and processing solution on a single chip. The Model 5950 brings RFSoC performance to 3U VPX with a complete system on a board.  Complementing the RFSoC’s on-chip resources are the 5950’s sophisticated clocking section for single board and multi board synchronization, a low-noise front end for RF input and output, up to 18 GBytes of DDR4, a PCIe interface, a gigabit serial optical interface capable of supporting dual 100 GigE connections and general purpose serial and parallel signal paths to the FPGA.
