Ready to Integrate
VITA 57.1 (FMC) Form Factor
Sidekiq X2 multi-tuner RF transceiver card defines the state of
the art in high-performance, flexible RF. Based on Analog Devices’ AD9371 wideband
transceiver, the X2 achieves unprecedented levels of RF performance to provide a
production ready RF transceiver solution in a VITA 57.1 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC)
compliant form factor. Sidekiq X2 includes additional features to extend the RF
tuning range of the AD9371, while also integrating Rx pre-select filtering and
clock synchronization to support real-world deployment use cases.
Flexible RF Front End
Sidekiq X2 provides two phase-coherent RF transmitters and two phase-coherent RF receivers along with a third, independently tunable receiver. Each channel's bandwidth can be configured up to 100 MHz.
X2 offers unprecedented levels of RF performance
Ready for 3U VPX Applications
Sidekiq X2 supports lab and field deployments with a COTS PCIe-based FPGA carrier card integrated into a Thunderbolt™ 3 chassis. For ruggedized deployments, Sidekiq X2 can be integrated into COTS 3U or 6U VPX carrier cards. The X2 Platform Development Kit (PDK) provides customers with access to both a software API for interfacing to the card, as well as the source code for the FPGA reference design.
