Digitization and processing with more channels, more bandwidth, and more samples per second. Scorpion is a flexible DSP system, designed to operate in multiple configurations and environments, including rack-mounted chassis, portable systems, and bench-top enclosures. Scorpion is built around the Xilinx Ultrascale+ Zynq MPSoC with an embedded quad-core Cortex-A53 ARM processor. Depending on daughter card configurations, Scorpion can record 4.8 gigabytes per second (GBPS), which is analogous to recording the content of a classic DVD every second.

Scorpion has four optional daughter cards to provide multiple ADAC configurations/capabilities. More information on each can be found under Documentation.


  • FMC+ connector for next-generation RF front-ends
  • 100 Gb Ethernet for high-speed network integration
  • 4x4 lane PCIe custom interface for attaching NVMe SSDs or other high-speed devices
  • ARM Ultrascale+ Zynq MPSoC: enables Linux-managed display port, USB 3.0, SATA, and 1 GbE
  • 10 GB FPGA attached DDR4 for signal processing and data buffering
