Highly-integrated, dual RF transceiver with observation path is part of ADI’s new RadioVerse™ technology and design ecosystem

Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for an integrated, dual RF transceiver from Analog Devices, Inc.

ADI's AD9371 is a highly-integrated, wideband RF transceiver offering dual channel transmitters and receivers, integrated synthesizers, and digital signal-processing functions. With a tuning range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz, 250 MHz signal bandwidth, and power consumption of less than 5 W under standard operating conditions, the IC delivers the combination of high performance and low power-consumption required by 3G/4G micro and macro base station equipment in both FDD and TDD applications.

The AD9371 is part of ADI’s new RadioVerse™ technology and design ecosystem, which provides customers with integrated transceiver technologies, a robust design environment, and market-specific technical expertise to quickly move radio designs from concept to creation. The new ecosystem’s transceiver technologies reduce radio size, weight and power (SWaP), while the design environment offers board support packages, software and tools to help customers simplify and accelerate radio development across a range of applications, including wireless infrastructure, aerospace and defense electronics, and electronic test and measurement.

According to ADI, additional key features of the AD9371 include:

  • Dual differential transmitters (Tx)
  • Dual differential receivers (Rx)
  • Observation receiver (ORx) with 2 inputs
  • Sniffer receiver (SnRx) with 3 inputs
  • Tx synthesis bandwidth (BW) to 250 MHz
  • Rx BW: 8 MHz to 100 MHz
  • Supports frequency division duplex (FDD) and time division duplex (TDD) operation
  • Fully integrated independent fractional-N radio frequency (RF) synthesizers for Tx, Rx, ORx, and clock generation
  • JESD204B digital interface
