The ZU28DRF-FFVG1517 contains eight multi-gigasample (4 GSPS), 12-bit RF analog-to-digital converter (RF-ADC) channels across four banks and eight multi-gigasample (6.544 GSPS), 14-bit RF digital-to-analog (RF-DAC) converter channels across two banks. The ZCU111 board provides a pair of Samtec LPAF connectors for the RF-ADC/RF-DAC clock and RF signals. The FMC-XM500 is an out-of-the-box AMS RFMC plug-in card that mates with the ZCU111 board via two Samtec LPAM (8x40) connectors on the bottom of the XM500 card with connectivity featuring:

Two DACs and two ADCs routed to HF baluns with –1dB Pi pad attenuators and then to SMAs

Two DACs and two ADCs routed to LF baluns with –3dB Pi pad attenuators and then to SMAs

Four DACs and four ADCs routed to SMAs for use with external custom baluns and filters

Four pairs external input clocks for ADCs

Four pairs external input clocks for DACs

While the ZCU111 board RFSoC bank 224-227 VCM nets are wired to the ZCU111 LPAF J47 connector, the RFMC XM500 plug-in board mating LPAM J333 connector does not break out these VCM nets
