Overview
vNassa is the latest Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform from Vanteon Wireless Solutions. vNassa is based on the Analog Devices ADRV9002 highly integrated wideband RF transceiver and the Xilinx Zynq-7020 Programmable System-on-Chip (SoC).  The ADRV9002 is coupled with a custom-designed, performance-enhancing 915 MHz RF front end which provides 1W of transmit power.  Together, these components create a flexible, cost-effective, and highly integrated SDR platform that beautifully balances performance and cost, and is perfectly suited for the narrowband industrial market.

Applications
vNassa’s software update capability protects your hardware investment by handling your legacy waveforms today while allowing upgradability to handle future waveforms like Wi-SUN.  Potential applications include the following:

  • Advanced metering
  • Distributed automation
  • Municipal Lighting
  • Smart parking
  • Environmental sensing

Platform Features

  • Xilinx Zynq Family FPGA for high-performance signal processing
  • Dual embedded ARM Cortex — A9 processor in the Zynq core
  • Highly integrated, wide frequency range RF transceiver (ADI ADRV9002)
  • Performance enhancing RF Front End (RFFE) to improve on the transceiver FE
  • Library of target-agnostic C/C++ software, VHDL firmware, and Matlab/Simulink® DSP modules providing core functions for radio operations:
    • Modulation/demodulation (ASK/AM, FSK/FM, PSK/PM, QAM, OFDM)
    • Digital down/up conversion
    • Symbol timing recovery/tracking
    • Carrier recovery/tracking
    • Filters (FIR, IIR, multi-rate, adaptive)
    • Automatic gain control
    • Channel coding
    • Multichannel TX/RX capabilities
    • FEC (e.g., convolutional, Reed-Solomon)
    • Spread spectrum coding
    • Customizable MAC

Specifications

  • Support for bandwiths between 12 KHz and 40 MHz
  • Broad RF frequency range from 30 MHz to 6 GHz with minimal hardware modification
  • Support for 2 TX and 2 RX
  • Support for DPD (limits 2 RX operation)
  • Low power consumption
  • Fast lock for frequency hopping
  • Size (cm): 7.3 x 3.7
