Epiq Solutions Introduces Matchstiq™ Z3u, a New Radically Small, Field-Ready, Low Profile Software-Defined Radio (SDR) RF Platform Ideal for On-the-Go Signal Processing

Weighing under six ounces, Matchstiq Z3u provides a fully-housed SDR that enables new levels of mobility for high performance computing platforms and signal processing applications.

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Sept. 17, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Sept. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --  Epiq Solutions, an engineering firm developing cutting edge RF tools for situational awareness and detailed insight into RF environments, today introduces Matchstiq Z3u, the newest member of the Matchstiq family of flexible, application-ready software defined radio (SDR) platforms. Matchstiq Z3u helps engineering teams accelerate their development schedule and time to market by providing a flexible RF platform in a mobile-ready form factor. This allows these engineering teams to focus on their signal processing application development instead of the complexities of developing size, weight, and power (SWaP) constrained SDR platforms.

Matchstiq Z3u combines a Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ System on Chip (SoC) with quad-core ARM CPU running Ubuntu Linux, Analog Devices' AD9361 RFIC, integrated Rx pre-select filters, GPS disciplined oscillator, 10 MHz + PPS inputs, and a USB 3.0 OTG interface. Applications can execute locally on the Zynq US+ SoC, or remotely on a host device such as a cell phone, tablet, or laptop by connecting to Matchstiq Z3u over USB 3.0. Both eMMC (128 GB) and an externally accessible microSD card slot are included to provide multiple data storage options. Power can be provided to the platform through the USB-C interface, or via an external DC power input port. The entire platform including its custom aluminum housing measures just 3.64" x 2.74" x 0.75" and comes with a magnetic mounting option to attach it to a host device.

"Matchstiq Z3u breaks the mold and reimagines what is possible for SWaP-constrained signal processing application development and use cases, supporting both stand-alone operation as well as deployments when attached to a mobile computing platform", stated John Orlando, CEO and co-founder at Epiq Solutions. "This platform builds upon Epiq's 10+ years of experience developing innovative SDR solutions our customers can trust, and we are excited to continue pushing the bounds when it comes to size, weight, and power constrained RF solutions."

A complete Platform Development Kit (PDK) with Linux board support package (BSP), open API and FPGA reference design source code is available to allow customers to develop their own signal processing applications for Matchstiq Z3u. This PDK leverages the same API and FPGA reference design used with Epiq's Sidekiq portfolio of SDR modules, providing a familiar interface for existing customers.

Matchstiq Z3u continues the tradition of the Matchstiq family of RF platforms by offering high performance signal processing capability in a small and lightweight package. It is available for order now with production units shipping in fourth quarter of 2020.
