RF transceiver is tuneable from 75MHz to 6GHz
Availability and full design support capabilities for a new RF transceiver from Analog Devices has been announced by Richardson RFPD. The ADRV9009 is tuneable from 75MHz to 6GHz, providing designers with a single radio platform to accelerate the deployment of 5G, sustain 2G/3G/4G coverage, and simplify phased array radar design.
The availability of a single platform reduces product design times by as much as half, while simplifying the deployment and maintenance of multi-band, multi-standard communications equipment.
Additional key features of the device include delivering 200MHz bandwidth, 2x the previous generation.
The system integration replaces up to 20 components, significantly reducing SWaP while LO synchronisation simplifies digital beamforming for phased array radar and massive MIMO.
It also features fast frequency-hopping to reduce system downtime, and improve spectrum efficiency and link security.
An evaluation board for the new device is also available.
