The SDR-S3980 is the latest offering from saluki, a high-performance, standalone SDR device featuring 8 channels. It consists of an on-board processor, FPGA and RF front end. The FPGA features the resourceful, user-programmable Xilinx MPSOC ZU11EG. The SDR device has an Ubuntu system built-in and integrates application software such as GNU Radio.

Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC has a scalable 64-bit processor and includes an application processing-based APU, a real-time processing-based RPU, a GPU, and other configuration programmable logic platforms, while combining real-time control with hardware and software engines for graphics, video, waveform, and packet processing, enabling limitless possibilities for applications such as 5G wireless, next-generation ADAS, and the Industrial Internet of Things.

The SDR-S3980 is an ideal prototype for developing a range of advanced research applications, including standalone 5G or 802.11 device emulation, media access control (MAC) algorithms, multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) systems, heterogeneous networks, 5G transmission, RF compression sampling, spectral remote sensing, cognitive radio, beamforming and direction finding.
