RadioVerse Wideband RF Transceivers

ADI’s integrated wideband RF transceiver product series offers highly integrated, carrier-grade radio system-on-chip (SoC) solutions that support communications, aerospace and defense, and high speed instrumentation applications. In addition to reduced size, weight and power (SWaP) these devices are versatile and can be used as a common design platform across multiple designs and variants.

AD9371 Chip
Introducing the AD9371

The AD9371 RF transceiver is for applications that require high performance radios across a wideband frequency range while maintaining low power consumption levels. It is a highly integrated 12mm x 12mm SoC that replaces as many as 20 high performance discrete components. The AD9371 covers a 300-MHz to 6-GHz frequency range and supports receiver and transmit large signal instantaneous bandwidths up to 100 MHz, observation receiver and transmit synthesis bandwidths up to 250 MHz, fully integrated LO and clocking functions, and highly advanced on-chip calibration and correction algorithms.

How RadioVerse Leads the Transceiver Market

High Performance and Integration

  • Replaces as many as 20 high performance, discrete radio components with one SOC solution providing simple, reliable connections. 
  • Direct conversion, high linearity, and self calibration maintain best performance levels under varying environmental and operating conditions. 
  • Large-scale integration and zero IF allows for wide frequency range and eliminates interconnection losses while reducing broadband matching concerns.

Versatility

  • Offers a common platform for a wide range of applications, reducing development time and inventory costs.
  • Operates from 300 MHz to 6 GHz.
  • Supports receiver bandwidths up to 100 MHz.
  • Supports operating transmit bandwidths up to 100 MHz and observation receiver and transmit synthesis bandwidths up to 250 MHz for digital correction algorithms.

Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)

  • Reduced component count enables radios to be installed on buildings, light poles, office walls, and more.
  • A power consumption level at less than 5 W under normal operating conditions reduces the need for cooling, increases reliability, and reduces operating costs.
  • JESD204B data interface minimizes input/output lines, reduces routing density making PCB routing easier.

Ease of Use

  • ADI radio technology design expertise reduces development costs and time to market (TTM).
  • Complete API, software user guides, and a standard serial peripheral interface (SPI) simplify development.
  • On-chip tracking calibration maintains performance with little user control required.

PicoZed SDR SpeedWay Design Video Workshop Series

The SpeedWay Design Video Workshop features technical experts from Avnet, Analog Devices and MathWorks to provide training to design wireless communications with the Avnet PicoZed™ SDR Software-Defined Radio Development Kit. The kit includes the recently introduced PicoZed™ SDR Z7035/AD9361, a rugged, low-power, small footprint system-on-module (SOM) which combines the Analog Devices AD9361 integrated RF Agile Transceiver™ with the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 Z-7035All Programmable SoC, and is supported by robust simulation and code generation tools that integrate seamlessly with Xilinx Vivado® Design Suite.

Day 1 AM Lab:
AD9361 System-Level Model Lab

This lab uses a simulation model of the Analog Devices RadioVerse™ AD9361 Wideband Low Power RF transceiver on PicoZed SDR to explore user options for tuning device parameters to meet system requirements for RF performance. During this lab you will gain an understanding of the receiver portion of the AD9361.
