Analog Devices FMCOMMS via Yocto

Posted by & filed under Blog, REDHAWK.

Recently, we developed a capability that combined an Analog Devices FMCOMMS3 dual-transceiver FMC card with a Xilinx ZC706 Development kit and represents that system as a combined REDHAWK FrontEnd Interfaces and Persona Device. The ZC706 is another Xilinx Zynq -based system similar to the more common ZedBoard and ZC702 development kits except that it provides… Read more »

Targeting the MicroZed with Yocto/OpenEmbedded

Posted by & filed under Blog.

In our previous part of the series, we used our newly-released Manifests repo to build a Linux file system, with REDHAWK pre-installed, for an emulated ARM target (QEMU). So what about a real ARM target? In this video, we take you through that process, because it all begins simply enough. We download the meta-xilinx layer,… Read more »

Getting Started with Meta-REDHAWK-SDR

Posted by & filed under Blog, REDHAWK, Training.

As promised in the Coming Soon 2017 video post on YouTube, we’re excited this week to kick off a video series that will show how to get started with Meta-REDHAWK-SDR using our newly-released Manifests. This video is the bare-bones of it all. If you can run BitBake for Yocto 2.1 (Krogoth) and install Google Repo,… Read more »

Container-based REDHAWK

Geon Technologies is both a member and strong supporter of the REDHAWK SDR community. As such, we have unique opportunities to not only showcase our own technologies using REDHAWK SDR but also solutions to common system architecture problems. One of the strongest examples of this work has been showcased over several YouTube videos and blog… Read more »

Ettus B205Mini, a REDHAWK Debut

Posted by & filed under Blog, REDHAWK.

Through our partnership with Ettus Research, we were recently given the chance to work with one of their new devices, the B205mini. This little device, smaller than a deck of cards, has a Spartan 6 FPGA and a transceiver capable of an instantaneous bandwidth of 56 MHz at frequencies up to 6 GHz. That is… Read more »
