Software Defined Radio (SDR) refers to radio systems in which aspects of functionality are defined in software. SDR enables very flexible radio architectures which can adapt to support different standards and protocols, signal bandwidths, modulation frequencies, and so on. With the move towards 5G, and against a backdrop of increasing pressure on available RF spectrum resources, interest in SDR is growing. Our work combines two recent Xilinx innovations: the RFSoC device, and the PYNQ framework. These are shown to be a compelling combination for SDR! Our demonstration system shows QPSK transmission and reception with real-time control and visualization in PYNQ.
