Ready to Integrate
Into systems with Mini PCIe or M.2
The Sidekiq family of products provide breakthrough small form-factor software defined radio (SDR) transceiver solutions, ready for integration into systems that support either Mini PCIe or M.2 cards. Sidekiq is based on Analog Devices’ AD9361 wideband transceiver and supports a tuning range of 70 MHz to 6 GHz. With the AD9361, RF transceiver plus programmable logic, millions of host devices (laptops, tablet computers, embedded computers, etc) can immediately be transformed into RF processing powerhouses with the addition of Sidekiq.
Ready to Develop
We have tools to help get you started
Sidekiq enables solutions for RF test and measurement, point-to-point communications, and a variety of other wireless applications where size, weight, and power consumption are critical. To support the development of these solutions, the Sidekiq 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 for customization. The software API provides an easy to use interface for configuring the RF transceivers and streaming data between the host and sidekiq over the PCIe interface. Advanced users can add their own processing blocks to the FPGA to radically increase the signal processing capabilities of the system.
