Analog Devices (ADI) is expanding its RadioVerse™ transceiver family with three new products offering improved performance and features tailored for wireless infrastructure, phased array radar, military communications and test and measurement applications. The ADRV9008 is a two-chip transceiver (i.e., one each for transmit and receive) for frequency-division duplex (FDD) systems, and the ADRV9009 is a single chip transceiver for time-division duplex (TDD) systems.

ADI ADRV9009 functional block diagramCovering 75 MHz to 6 GHz, the new transceivers double the receive bandwidth of the prior generation to 200 MHz and add the capability for multi-chip synchronization of the on-chip LOs, which simplifies beamforming in phased array radar and massive MIMO communications by eliminating the need for an external LO. The highly integrated transceivers reduce power consumption by 50 percent, eliminate up to 20 external components and cut PCB footprint by 60 percent.

Functionally, the TDD ADRV9009 contains two transmitters, two receivers, a separate observation receiver, LO, digital processing for filtering and calibration and a 12 Gbps JESD204B interface. Receiver bandwidth is 200 MHz, transmitter bandwidth is 450 MHz and the transceiver consumes 4.5 W with a 50 percent transmit/receive duty cycle.

The ADRV9008-2 contains dual 450 MHz transmitters with an observation receiver, LO and the same digital processing and interface as the ADRV9009.

The three devices are each packaged in a 12 mm x 12 mm ball grid array.

Wireless Infrastructure

For wireless infrastructure, the new members of the RadioVerse family support both FDD and TDD systems, providing a common platform for all cellular standards from 2G through 5G — the first RF transceiver to do so. This enables cellular equipment manufacturers to adopt a single radio design, reducing product development time and simplifying deployment and maintenance of the radio network.

The wider bandwidth, low power and small size of the transceivers make them well-suited for massive MIMO systems being developed for LTE-Advanced and 5G infrastructure.

Aerospace and Defense

The direct conversion architecture, self-calibration, high linearity and low power consumption of the transceivers enable the development of high performance signals intelligence receivers and software-defined radios, and the fast frequency hopping capability supports the secure communication needs of military radios.

For phased array radar and other beamforming systems, the ADRV9009 provides gain, phase and digital filter blocks programmable by the user, and the phase synchronization capability enables the on-chip LOs to be synchronized across multiple transceivers to maintain phase coherence.

Test and Measurement

The functional integration of the new RF transceivers simplifies the front-end design of test and measurement equipment, enabling the rapid development of small, low cost, laboratory grade equipment. The size and power reduction are particularly beneficial for multi-channel test systems.

Design Support

To assist engineers with the development of RadioVerse-based systems, Analog Devices provides an ecosystem of support: software tools, evaluation and prototyping platforms, reference designs and complete radio solutions. These include a JESD204B FPGA integration framework, production-ready RF system-on-module (RF SoM) with dual ADRV9009 devices and a global partnership network for additional design and technical services.
