ADI unveils direct conversion receiver development platform for radar systems

Analog Devices, Inc. announced an integrated direct conversion receiver development platform for radar systems where reduced size, weight and power (SWaP) implementation is critical. The new AD-FMCOMMS6-EBZ platform is a 400 MHz to 4.4 GHz receiver (1350 to 1650 MHz with installed filters) supporting the key L- and S-band frequency radar bands.

Analog Devices introduces Ka-Band HPA and block upconverter

Analog Devices Inc. introduced two Ka-Band devices for use in single-carrier satellite communications. The HMC7053 block upconverter and HMC7054 high-power amplifier (HPA) operate in the 29 to 31 Ghz frequency output range, feature -60 dBc spurious-free dynamic range performance and cover both commercial and military bands while meeting military environmental conditions.

Analog Devices' new PLLs deliver widest frequency range coverage and lowest VCO phase noise

Analog Devices Inc. introduced today three new phase-locked loop (PLL) devices one of which features the industry's widest frequency coverage and lowest voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) phase noise in a single device. Targeted at RF and microwave communications systems designers who need a single, high-performance wideband synthesizer, the ADF5355 PLL covers a 55 MHz to 14 GHz frequency spectrum, the widest in its class, while the ADF4355-2 PLL features a 55 MHz to 4.4 GHz frequency span. Both PLLs integrate ultra-low-phase-noise VCOs that deliver -133 dBc/Hz @ 1 MHz offset at 6 GHz—at least 2 dB lower noise performance than any competing device.
