Richardson RFPD Announces Availability of Wideband RF Transceiver from ADI

June 12, 2018

Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new RF transceiver from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI).

The ADRV9009 is tunable from 75 MHz to 6 GHz, providing designers with a single radio platform to accelerate the deployment of 5G, sustain 2G/3G/4G coverage and simplify phased array radar design. The availability of a single platform reduces product design times by as much as half, while simplifying the deployment and maintenance of multi-band, multi-standard communications equipment.

Additional key features of the ADRV9009 include:

  • Delivers 200 MHz bandwidth, 2x the previous generation
  • System integration replaces up to 20 components, significantly reducing SWaP
  • LO synchronization simplifies digital beamforming for phased array radar and massive MIMO
  • Fast frequency-hopping reduces system downtime, improves spectrum efficiency and link security

An evaluation board for the new device is also available.

The new device is part of ADI’s RadioVerse™ technology and design ecosystem. RadioVerse accelerates advanced radio design and development and includes market-leading integrated radio platforms, software tools, evaluation and prototyping platforms, a range of reference designs, and full radio solutions.
