How RadioVerse's AD9371 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 SDR 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.
