Altera Corporation and Texas Instruments (TI) have collaborated to design a complete RF development kit that eases RF prototyping for systems based on Altera's 28-nm Arria V FPGAs. The modular Arria V FPGA RF Development Kit includes all the hardware and software needed for RF transmit, receive and digital pre-distortion feedback. The development kit reduces the amount of time needed to design and verify RF systems from months to weeks.

The Arria V FPGA RF Development Kit provides RF developers with access to the latest generation of 28-nm FPGAs from Altera, along with the newest analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and clocks from TI. The kit provides 2.5 times more transmit and digital pre-distortion feedback bandwidth than similar solutions and is the industry's first complete main/diversity receive development platform supporting up to 75MHz of bandwidth.

The new RF development kit features a 28-nm Arria V FPGA, a feedback and transmission bandwidth of up to 500MHz, a main/diversity receive bandwidth with 14bit resolution and 31.5dB of gain range that reaches up to 75MHz, a low phase-noise-fractional phase-locked loop (PLL)/ voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) and a modular design, which enables alternative and future evaluation modules to be incorporated.

The Arria V FPGA RF Development Kit includes the Arria V FPGA Development Board and a selection of RF components from TI.
