Evaluation Tools & Development Kits

RadioVerse SDR transceiver technologies offer several evaluation options, including prototyping platforms, full evaluation systems, software simulation tools, device drivers, and more. Pick the evaluation option that best suits your requirements and stage in the design cycle.

High Power Software Defined Radio (SDR) Developer's Kits

The high power developer's SDR kits are intended as evaluation platforms with the ability to optimize complete communication systems. Each kit contains multiple boards that combine FPGA and wideband transceiver with a high-power, high-efficiency RF front end. Also included are basic cables, documentation and embedded software to get you up and running.

Part Number Frequency (MHz) Transceiver FPGA PA Architecture Output Power (W@ Ant) Configuration
ETX120 1800-2700 AD9361 Artix-7 Envelope Tracking 7W (x2) 2x2 MIMO
ADI-DPD-DEVKIT 758-803 AD9375 ZC706 Doherty 5W 1x1 SISO

Software Defined Radio Evaluation Kits

The Software Defined Radio Evaluation Kits are single- or multi-board evaluation tools that combine FPGA and wideband transceiver as a simple, out-of-the-box, low-power SDR system. Besides an evaluation tool, these boards can serve as a reference design. Please contact Richardson RFPD for documentation.

RF Front End System Board

The RF Front End System Board is a single board that contains transmit and receive functionality and is intended to interface with wideband transceiver evaluation boards. Available separately or included in the High Power SDR Developer's kits as a complete solution. These system boards function as evaluation platform and/or reference designs. Please contact Richardson RFPD for information on how to license the design.

DE705 758-803 5W FDD 28VDC 1x1 SISO
ETX108 1800-2700 7W (x2) TDD/FDD 19.5VDC 2x2 MIMO

Wideband RF Transceiver Evaluation Boards

Wideband RF transceiver evaluation boards are intended to test and offer familiarity with RF transceiver ICs. These evaluation boards are based on a specific transceiver IC and are configured in either SISO or MIMO. This board is available separately, or it can be combined with FPGA SoC evaluation boards and high-power RF Front End Boards in our System Developer's Kit.
