XTRX Testing on ARM

A few people asked us about ARM support and most of them were interested in NVidia Tegra, so we grabbed a NVidia Jetson TK1 development kit for testing. Simple cross-compilation of the driver gives us 22 MSPS right away:

root@tegra-ubuntu:~/PKG/usr/lib# uname  -a
Linux tegra-ubuntu 3.10.40-ga7da876 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 7 21:05:06 PDT 2016 armv7l 
armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

root@tegra-ubuntu:~/PKG/usr/lib# ./test_xtrxll
Success!
Processed RX 2 x 11.000 = 22.000 MSPS (WIRE: 87.999299) TX 2 x 11.007 = 22.015 MSPS
(WIRE: 88.058852 MB/s) 
11:38:47.956458 INFO: XTRX PCI_4: Device closing

Not a bad result for an (almost) zero effort. We’ll see if we can optimize and get more performance out of it later on.

Stay tuned!

$599

XTRX Pro

Get an XTRX Pro board. Does not include any cables, antennas, or adapter boards.


$85

PCIe x2 Lite Adapter

This PCIe card securely holds an XTRX board (not included) so it can be used in a standard PCIe x4 slot. This adapter achieves the full 10 Gbit/s raw bus bandwidth and can be plugged into x4/x8/x16 PCIe slots. A six-pin JTAG connector makes it easy to program and debug the FPGA. Includes six SMA-to-U.FL cables, two screws for mounting your an XTRX board, and four 8 cm U.FL-to-U.FL cables.


$59

Antennas + Cables

A full complement of cables and antennas for your XTRX, including four RF antennas (95 mm, 2 dBi, SMA male, GSM/3G/LTE 880 - 960 MHz, 1710 - 1990 MHz), one GPS antenna, and five cables.
