AFE IC bridges the gap between RF & DSP
CML Microcircuits announces that it has added a wideband mode to the CMX983 AFE IC that bridges the gap between a digital radio’s RF section and the DSP/FPGA. The 50kHz wideband mode opens up new high speed data application areas in satellite and terrestrial wireless telemetry systems.
Specifically designed to meet the needs of an SDR, the CMX983 performs critical DSP-intensive functions, provides dual-channel ADC and DAC, includes two RF fractional-N synthesisers and embeds a host of auxiliary ADCs and DACs for use within the radio system.
The CMX983 is highly configurable, supporting numerous sample rates and filtering characteristics. This configurability enables a high level of functionality, integration and connectivity with RF building block ICs. The CMX983 connects seamlessly with CML’s CMX994 Direct Conversion Receiver and the CMX998 Cartesian Feedback Loop Transmitter, to provide a complete small form factor, RF-to-digitised baseband solution.
