The Xilinx 1024QAM Microwave Modem IP is designed for wireless backhaul networks with reliability, timing, and cost constraints. This IP is a fully adaptive, low-footprint, low-power modem solution for indoor and full outdoor point-to-point microwave links. It supports a 1Gbps, single-channel, raw-data throughput and has an integrated digital pre-distortion module.
All integrated versions of the modem are supported by the Zynq™-7000 SoC platform, Artix™ and Kintex™ family of devices. This Xilinx solution for a 1024QAM Microwave Modem conserves considerable PCB board space and power versus competing design solutions. The modem incorporates all PHY layer features including QPSK-1024QAM modulation, 3.5-112MHz bandwidth support, adaptive modulation, adaptive DPD, FEC, I/Q imbalance correction, automatic frequency recovery, and a hybrid decision-directed equalizer. It also features an integrated payload controller and a configuration interface.
