Rover RCRF – Fully ReConfigurable RF Board with Design, Simulation and Synthesis Software Using NI AWRs VSS and Microwave Office


  • Hardware module implements 39 selectable RF components in five stages, including one pass-through for each stage
  • Stage 5 contains a band reject filter with software tunable center frequency
  • Six SMA connections
  • RF input and output
  • Connections out to an external circuit and back in
  • LO input to sum mixer
  • LO input to diff mixer
  • Uses AWR’s VSS software for data input and simulation
  • Includes component library, all DRC and synthesis software, and controller module
  • Non-volatile memory restores the last configuration on power-up or reset
  • Includes User’s Guide and 6′ USB cable to connect the designer’s PC to the RF-FPGA
  • Most on-board components operate around 70 MHz, 811.5 MHz, or 1960 MHz
