TE0841 with AFE7422 Evaluation Module
« on: October 18, 2021, 08:37:25 AM »
Dear All,

I want to use TE0841 EVM with Texas Instrument AFE7422 EVM . We have background experience working on other vendor module but this will be our first time to use Trenz EVM  board.

My question is there any RFSoC or SoM available combining TE0841 and AFE7422 ? and what are other accessories that needs to be order with above mentioned hardware to work together ?

warm regards 

JH

Hi,
no we haven't any carrier where you can use TE0841  together with AFE7422  EVM.

AFE7422  used JESD204b standard over high speed lanes. TE0841  has also high speed lanes (GTH), but for JESD204, you need additional IP from Xilinx, which is not free available.

We haven't any carrier which forward these IOs to SMA connectors like on the AFE7422  EVM board.

On option is your design your own one. We offer the altium projects of the most of our carriers on the download area of the carrier, this will help to speed up carrier designing.

Thank you for your response .

I got the info from your reply that both Evaluation boards [ AFE7422 & TE0841 ] shall work by purchasing additional JESD204b IP core from Xilinx ? . is there any help/guidance available on this forum by integrating JESD204b IP core in the BSP provided by Trenz along with TE0841 EVM ?

warm regards

You need also a carrier which forward correct Modules IOs to SMA Connectors (it looks like AFE7422  use SMA for JESD). And yes, theoretical it should work. But you must setup everything correctly by yourself and it also depends on the final lane rate and length and quality of your transmission lane.

I think not much. I've less experience with JESD IP from Xilinx.
