Wideband RF transceiver for base station developers
Analog Devices has introduced a new wideband transceiver within its RadioVerse design and technology ecosystem. The ADRV9026 is designed to support base station applications including single and multi-standard 3G/4G/5G macrocell base stations, massive MIMO (M-MIMO) and small cell systems.
The ADRV9026, ADI’s fourth-generation wideband RF transceiver, offers quad-channel integration with the lowest power, smallest size, common-platform solution. The new software defined transceiver supports both Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD) standards, simplifying design and reducing system power, size, weight and costs for 3G/4G/5G applications.
The RadioVerse design and technology ecosystem offers a one-stop radio design environment focused on simplifying the radio development process for a wide range of markets and applications. The RadioVerse ecosystem includes rapid prototyping platforms, chip-level evaluation systems, simulation tools and development kits as well as a global partnership network that provides multiple levels of design support.
The ADRV9026 is available in a 14x14mm BGA package. Key features include:
- Qual-channel transmitters and receivers with dual-channel observation receivers.
- LO frequency: 650 to 6000MHz.
- Maximum receiver/transmitter bandwidth: 200MHz.
- Maximum observation receiver/transmitter synthesis bandwidth: 450MHz.
- Multichip phase synchronisation for all local oscillators and baseband clocks.
