iWave launches the ZU49/ZU39/ZU29 RFSoC SoM for enhanced Military & Signal Processing applications


iWave Systems is pleased to announce the Zynq® UltraScale+TM RFSoC System on Module. The SOM features the ZU49DR, and compatible with the ZU39 and ZU29. The RFSoC Gen3 family is known to be a right fit increasingly complex and performance-demanding RF applications such as 5G wireless, Digital RF front end, Aerospace, Defense and other high-performance RF applications.

The System on Module provides for the industry’s highest RF channel count with 16 Channel RF-DACs @ 10GSPS & 16 Channel RF-ADCs @ 2.5GSPS. Integrated RF PLL, SyncE & PTP network synchronization enable highest signal processing bandwidth in the comprehensive RF signal chain.

Complete with an ARM® Cortex-A53 and Dual ARM® Corex-R5 processors with a high bandwidth DDR4 memory, the iWave RFSoC System on Module creates a multichannel data conversion and processing solution.

Complementing the RFSoC resources, the SoM provides for

  • 64-bit PL DDR4 and 64-bit PS DDR4 with ECC
  • Integrated ultra-low-noise programmable RF PLL
  • Integrated SyncE & PTP Network Synchronization
  • Dual 400 Pin Board to Board connectors
    • 16 ADC Channels up to 2.5Gsps
    • 16 DAC Channels up to 10Gsps
    • 16 GTY Transceivers up to 32.75Gbps
    • 192 FPGA IOs


The System on Module supports a wide range of high-speed connectivity peripherals such as PCIe, USB3.0, SATA3.1 and Display Port through the GTR high-speed transceivers. High-speed serial connectivity is available through the dual 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet.

The module leverages the Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+TM RFSoC Gen3 device, making it ideal to be deployed into RF systems which demand small footprint, low power, and real-time processing. Furthermore, the SoM brings in a drop-in solution for customers who wants to expedite integration of RFSoC Gen-3 technology into their products.

“The RFSoC System on Module packed with new Gen3 RFSoC, comprehensive programmable clock distribution & synchronization and integrated high bandwidth memory provides complete RF & Processing solution in lowest possible power & footprint” said Immanuel Rathinam, Vice President – System on Modules at iWave. “The flexibility offered by the SoM helps the user to deploy the new technology in the field by leveraging the design to match the specific application requirements.”

iWave also provides reference designs for the System on Module in the form of a development kit. The developments kit enabled the user to begin application development and prototyping. iWave also provides custom design and manufacturing services around the SoM, presenting a comprehensive ecosystem for the customer on their product development.
