Furthering its commitment to innovation in wireless and RF IC design, Analog Devices Inc., a global leader in high performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, announced an 8 GHz phase-locked loop (PLL) synthesizer. The new ADF4108 is targeted at high frequency wireless systems, such as those used for broadband wireless access, satellite communications, instrumentation, wireless LANs and base stations for wireless radio. Because of its high frequency operation, the ADF4108 can eliminate the need for frequency doublers, thereby simplifying the system architecture and reducing system cost.

"ADI's RF and wireless engineering efforts are built upon an allegiance to innovation, quality and solving the signal processing challenges of its customers," said Christian Kermarrec, vice president, RF and wireless systems, Analog Devices Inc. "The ADF4108 is the latest example of how we continue to develop products that ease wireless system design while maintaining high performance."

The new ADF4108 will be on display at ADI's booth #2209 along with the company's broad portfolio of RF ICs and technologies for applications including cellular terminals and infrastructure, wireless instrumentation and broadband wireless access.
