More often than not, embedded wireless equipment, the infrastructure that powers it, and the systems that test the deployed hardware don’t just use off-the-shelf parts. As with 4G and 3G before it, the range of technologies required for 5G requires the backbone for deployment and testing. This hardware usually has many requirements, such as flexibility, density, fast time to market, and reconfigurability. Today Xilinx is announcing its next generation of Zynq Ultrascale+ RFSoCs to address this market.
Some of the key elements of the embedded market are cost, power and efficiency. A number of applications for embedded vision and IoT, when applying complexity, rely on the...1 by Ian Cutress on 9/27/2016
