Availability and full design support capabilities for a new modular software-defined radio (SDR) kit from Analog Devices has been announced by Richardson RFPD. The ADI-DPD-DEVKI is a small cell development kit with a scalable RF front end board. It is optimised for FDD-LTE Bands 14 and 28 but scalable to other bands and configurations.
The development kit is intended to reduce customer development time and risk. It consists of three boards – DE705, ADRV9375-W/PCBZ and EVAL-TPG-ZYNQ3 - as well as documentation and support.
Documentation includes a quick start guide to assist with recommended configuration and settings to the minimum performance specifications, as well as an operating manual for managing deeper edit functionality.
The DE705 is a complete, scalable RF front-end evaluation platform for FDD operation of LTE Bands 14 and 28. Features a single-channel transmitter and a single-channel receiver with a swappable ceramic duplexer.
The ADRV9375-W/PCBZ is a complete radio card platform containing Analog Devices’ AD9375 DPD with high efficiency RF power amplifier.
The EVAL-TPG-ZYNQ3 is Analog Devices’ Zynq-7000 all-programmable SoC ZC706 evaluation kit optimised for JESD204B. It provides a data capture platform for many of the Radioverse families of wideband transceiver evaluation boards.
