  1. RF-ADC sampling rate is 2.5 GS/s using external sampling clock and ADC analog inputs at –1 dBFS, unless otherwise noted in the test conditions. ADC calibration mode is set to AutoCal mode. The ADC tiles are characterized using the on-chip clock forwarding configuration from tile 1 (bank 225), except when mentioned in the parameter condition column.
  2. Typical values are specified at nominal voltage, Tj = 40°C.
  3. Results showing poorer ACLR performance at higher input power than –10 dBFS back off point are limited by linearity of the vector signal generator source.
  4. See Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC RF Data Converter LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG269) for internal PLL information.

  1. RF-ADC sampling rate is 2.5 GS/s using external sampling clock and ADC analog inputs at –1 dBFS, unless otherwise noted in the test conditions. ADC calibration mode is set to AutoCal mode. The ADC tiles are characterized using the on-chip clock forwarding configuration from tile 1 (bank 225), except when mentioned in the parameter condition column.
  2. Typical values are specified at nominal voltage, Tj = 40°C.
  3. See Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC RF Data Converter LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG269) for internal PLL information.
  4. HD2 measurement is heavily influenced by the intrinsic phase imbalance (P to N skew) presented at the ADC inputs from the test setup such as balun skew, cabling skew, and PCB skew. Results presented include systematic skews of the testing environment.

  1. RF-ADC sampling rate is 2.95 GS/s using external sampling clock and ADC analog inputs at –1 dBFS, unless otherwise noted in the test conditions. ADC calibration mode is set to AutoCal mode. The ADC tiles are characterized using the on-chip clock forwarding configuration, except when mentioned in the parameter condition column.
  2. Typical values are specified at nominal voltage, Tj = 40°C.
  3. Results showing poorer ACLR performance at higher input power than –10 dBFS back off point are limited by linearity of the vector signal generator source.

  1. RF-ADC sampling rate is 5.0 GS/s using external sampling clock and ADC analog inputs at –1 dBFS, unless otherwise noted in the test conditions. ADC calibration mode is set to AutoCal mode. The ADC tiles are characterized using the on-chip clock forwarding configuration from tile 2 (bank 226), except when mentioned in the parameter condition column.
  2. Typical values are specified at nominal voltage, Tj = 40°C.
  3. Results showing poorer ACLR performance at higher input power than –10 dBFS back off point are limited by linearity of the vector signal generator source.

  1. RF-ADC sampling rate is 5.9 GS/s (interleaved mode) using external sampling clock and ADC analog inputs at –1 dBFS, unless otherwise noted in the test conditions. ADC calibration mode is set to AutoCal mode. The ADC tiles are characterized using the on-chip clock forwarding configuration, except when mentioned in the parameter condition column.
  2. Typical values are specified at nominal voltage, Tj = 40°C.
  3. See Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC RF Data Converter LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG269) for internal PLL information.
  4. HD2 measurement is heavily influenced by the intrinsic phase imbalance (P to N skew) presented at the ADC inputs from the test setup such as balun skew, cabling skew, and PCB skew. Results presented include systematic skews of the testing environment.
