Xilinx Zynq® FPGA with Analog RF front end

Reference designs

Open source reference designs for Zynq® development boards

We provide complete and open source reference designs for Xilinx Zynq® boards. From FPGA with Verilog HDL code / Xilinx IPs, Linux C++ drivers to client-side Python / TypeScript drivers, the designs are compatible with Koheron SDK to make it easier to develop custom instruments.

Zynq reference designs
FFT Analyzer for Zynq

FFT Analyzer

The FFT Analyzer for Koheron Alpha250 performs FFTs and averages them on the FPGA.

Pulse Generator for Zynq

Pulse Generator

The Pulse Generator for Red Pitaya allows to generate arbitrary pulses at regular intervals.

Picoblaze for Zynq


The Picoblaze for Zedboard is a microcontroller embedded on the FPGA.

Koheron SDK
