Designing with the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC

Course Description

This course is structured to provide designers with an overview of the hard block capabilities for the Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC family. Special emphasis is placed on the Data Converter and Soft-Decision FEC blocks.

Power estimation is covered to help designers identify the power demands of the device in various operating modes. Since the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC is both a high-speed and an analog and digital device, proper layout and PCB considerations are also covered.
