Analog Devices introduces wideband RF transceiver to simplify system design and reduce costs for base station developers
Published: 28 November 2019 - Sarah Mead
Highly Integrated ADRV9026 Transceiver delivers the lowest power, widest frequency range and smallest footprint in a single-chip for both FDD and TDD systems.
Analog Devices, Inc., 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. More information is available at www.analog.com/RadioVerse.
The ADRV9026 is available in a 14 x14 mm BGA package. Key features include:
Qual-channel transmitters and receivers with dual-channel observation receivers
LO frequency: 650 MHz to 6,000 MHz
Maximum receiver/transmitter bandwidth: 200 MHz
Maximum observation receiver/transmitter synthesis bandwidth: 450 MHz
Multichip phase synchronization for all local oscillators and baseband clocks
