RF transceivers operate from 30MHz to 6GHz
Analog Devices (ADI) is addressing mission-critical communications applications with a new series of RF transceivers offering the highest dynamic range on the market and suitable for myriad commercial and military applications.
The high-performance ADRV9002 RF transceiver is ideal for applications such as first responder radios, private Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks and satellite communications— where size, weight and power are key design considerations.
The RF transceiver is the latest addition to ADI’s RadioVerse design and ecosystem.
“Mission-critical communications networks are essential to ensure our safety,” said Joe Barry, Vice President of the Wireless Communications Business Unit at Analog Devices. “The difficulty for these networks to decipher complex signals increases as the radio spectrum becomes more populated. The ADRV9002 RF transceiver can correctly decode a signal in heavily congested spectrum. This helps customers develop radio platforms that are power and performance scalable across a broad range of commercial and military applications.”
The ADRV9002 RF Transceiver offers best-in-class dynamic range and it is capable of deciphering wideband and challenging narrow band operations within a single device and operates from 30MHz to 6GHz.
It provides receiver dynamic range of -150dBc/Hz and a highly linear transmitter and it is said to be the first radio transceiver designed to enable narrowband and traditional wideband signals from 12KHz to 40MHz.
The devices is capable of handling voice, data and imaging or video signals.
It incorporates digital signal radio correction algorithms, AGC, DPD, frequency hopping and channel filtering and has the ability to dynamically adjust performance and power.
ADI’s RadioVerse includes tools, design resources, and support to accelerate radio development timelines. The ecosystem includes rapid prototyping platforms, chip-level evaluation systems, reference designs, simulation tools, and development kits.There is a resource of global network partners for design ideas and RF platforms, including reference designs and solution modules. Technology resources include HDL and full-system level software reference designs on GitHub, compatible FPGA development carriers, and chip-level evaluation systems.
