New White Paper: Wireless Backhaul Network Node implemented with a Xilinx Zynq SoC

2015年2月26日 | By News | Filed in: News.


You can use a Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC to implement a complete wireless backhaul network node, as demonstrated in the reference design found in the new 31-page Xilinx White Paper WP457 “Integrated Single System-on-a-Chip Mobile Backhaul for Small-Cell Deployments.”

One Zynq-7000 device can:

  • Run the application software on the Zynq SoC’s dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor.
  • Implement the backhaul functionality—including timing and synchronization, packet switching, and the wireless modem—using the Zynq SoC’s Programmable Logic (PL).
  • Implement the required interfaces, including 1 GbE and 10 GbE MAC/PCS interfaces, and interfaces to ADCs and DACs using JESD204B or LVDS using the Zynq SoC’s SerDes and programmable I/O ports.

Here’s a block diagram of the design:

And here’s a diagram from the White Paper showing you how the wireless backhaul tasks are distributed to the on-chip ARM Cortex-A9 processor cores and the programmable logic:
