This book introduces Zynq Ultrascale+ RFSoC, a technology that brings real, single-chip, Software Defined Radio (SDR) to the marketplace. The book is accompanied by Jupyter Notebooks that can be run on your RFSoC-PYNQ enabled board, illustrating key concepts including sampling and quantisation, filter design, Fourier’s theorem and FFTs, pulse shaping, QAM, frequency planning, Forward-Error-Correction, and OFDM.
See the book website www.rfsocbook.com to download your free copy of the eBook and details on how to purchase hard copies.

RFSOC-PYNQ is an extension to PYNQ bringing support for the AMD-Xilinx Zynq RFSoC family of devices. RFSoC created a new class of integrated circuit architecture for the communications and instrumentation markets. RFSoC combines high-accuracy ADCs and DACs operating at Giga samples per second (GSPS), with programmable heterogeneous compute engines.
RFSoC-PYNQ provides Python APIs, libraries and drivers for the RFSoC, example overlays and designs, tutorials and other resources for RFSoC users.
The RFSoC 4x2 is the recommended kit to get started using RFSoC-PYNQ.
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new RFSoC 4x2 kits. The new kits greatly improve on the performance of the older RFSoC 2x2 kits, at the same $2,149 academic price.
For more details and purchasing information see the RFSoC 4x2 Overview.
Due to global supply challenges the RFSoC 2x2 kits are discontinued but software support for existing boards will continue.
See the PYNQ community Support forum for discussion and to post support questions related to RFSoC-PYNQ.
