Xilinx UltraScale+ RFSoC Gen 1/2 ZU2x/3x Power and Timing

Xilinx’s Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoCs integrate multi-gigasample RF data converters and soft-decision forward error correction (SD-FEC) into an SoC architecture. The multi-generation portfolio features a breadth of devices with varying direct RF performance to meet diverse spectrum needs and use cases. The integration of direct RF-sampling data converters offers the most flexible, smallest footprint and lowest power solution for a wide range of radio applications. Although Xilinx has released a Gen3 version of this family, the Gen1 and Gen2 are still in heavy use in the industry.

An SoC with this level of performance demands a high-current power supply with tight regulation and extremely low jitter clock sources. This winning combination highlights the power and timing devices that Xilinx chose for supporting their ZU2x and ZU3x products and additional suggested solutions that would be an excellent fit for many designs.
