Overview of AMD/Xilinx Modules

The KRM module series follows the philosophy that only essential and complex elements are to be part of the core module. Peripheral circuits such as Ethernet PHYs belong on the carrier, which defines the application specific functionality. By strictly adhering to this line of thought, KR can offer an extensive line of fully interchangeable modules across a broad range of performance points.

Based on the AMD RFSoC DFE Ultrascale+ series

The RFSoC DFE family of AMD features an enhanced analog bandwidth of 7.125GHz, up from 6GHz on Gen3 devices and 4GHz of Gen1 devices. With the additional bandwidth, higher Nyquist zone applications become feasible. The DFE hard IP and Low Phy hard IP blocks such as Channel filter, DUC/DDC, MIXER, FFT and iFFT and several more, implement common functions in an energy efficient way. The balanced blend of hard IP and sizeable FPGA fabric with almost 500k System Logic cells and more than 1800 DSP Blocks, makes this family exceptionally capable in a broad range of wireless applications. Wrapped in our reliable system design and implemented in a very compact 65x75mm from factor, the KRM-2 SoM is the perfect choice for a quick and easy way to deploy this marvel of a chip.
