The TimeSync SmartNIC FPGA FB4XXVG@Z21D is a high-performance OEM hardware platform intended for hardware acceleration for mobile 4G and 5G Baseband Units or Distributed Units with four SFP28 modules. Example: supports 100MHz carriers Radio Units via 4×10/25G eCPRI/CPRI with SFP28 modules, as well as interfacing to a Grand master via SFP28 at 10/25G.

The design is set to work in ORAN LLS-C1 and C2 with the intention to be utilized with a 4G/5G IP stack interfacing at 3GPP functional split options 8 for CPRI or 7.2x for eCPRI.

The card is based on a Xilinx® Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC FPGA, which embeds a Processor System (PS) with four 64-bit Application Processing Units (ARM Cortex-A53) and two Real-Time Processing Units (ARM Cortex-R5) along with a powerful Programmable Logic (PL) part (UltraScale+ FPGA), as well as an integrated SD-FEC block.

Key Features

  • 5G Fronthaul with FEC offload/in-line acceleration
  • IEEE-1588-2019 compliance, Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE)
  • SmartNIC with easy customer IP integration, DPDK support
