Zynq UltraScale + RFSoC and Application to the Remote PHY Node in Cable Access
This webinar will provide a brief overview of the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC and its application to a remote PHY node in Cable Access. We’ll first provide a technology overview of the world’s only hardware programmable System-on-Chip with integrated analog data converters, along with key performance metrics. We’ll then discuss its application to Remote PHY nodes leveraging key IP blocks available by Xilinx partner Calian SED.
