Off-the-Shelf RF System-on-Module (SOM) Potential for Military Applications.
Electronic component distributer, Avnet will be at LAND FORCES 2022 next week with its RFSoC SOM, designed for radio frequency (RF) systems that require a small footprint, low power, and real-time processing, such as Drone Detection systems and Phased Array Radar among other applications across aerospace and defence sectors.
Until recently, a wireless embedded system with a reconfigurable hardware module required a separate RF front-end in its system architecture. Limited by their size, weight and power consumption, these systems struggled to keep up with the miniaturisation trend of electronic devices.
To fill this widening gap in the market, Avnet further developed the single-chip adaptable radio platform into the reconfigurable RF System-on-Module: the Avnet RFSoC SOM (part name: ADRS1000™).
Exceptionally adaptable, scalable and reliable, the ADRS1000™ can be readily integrated into a wide range of complex wireless products, shortening their time to market while overcoming the problem of a global chip shortage.
“In the defence sector, the Avnet RFSoC SOM unlocks exciting possibilities for advanced radio and radar systems that are smaller, lighter and more energy-efficient than ever before,” said Wayne Leong, Country Manager, Avnet Australia and New Zealand.
“Beyond the aerospace and defence industry, we foresee a multitude of future applications for the Avnet RFSoC SOM in the areas of 5G and satellite communications. Its compatible specifications and small footprint could help many forward-thinking manufacturers win the race to market.”
