Norwood, MA (02/26/2014) - NORWOOD, Mass.— Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, announced today two software-defined radio (SDR) platform solutions and ecosystems. This brings its portfolio to four platform solutions that simplify rapid SDR system prototyping and development in applications ranging from defense electronics, RF instrumentation, communications infrastructure and open-source SDR development projects.
The AD-FMCOMMS4-EBZ is a transceiver FMC module and the newest addition to Analog Devices’ expanding portfolio of single-channel SDR solutions. It includes the new AD9364 RF Transceiver IC in a cost-effective 1 x 1 SDR rapid prototyping FMC module. The AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ is also a transceiver FMC module and was engineered for 70 MHz to 6 GHz wideband tuning applications such as hand-held and whitespace radios. It is built around the AD9361 RF transceiver on a 2 X 2 SDR rapid prototyping module joining the previously announced AD-FMCCOMMS2-EBZ FMC module in the dual channel product portfolio.
The new Analog Devices FMC modules include all of the HDL (hardware description language) code and device drivers needed for designers to quickly get their SDR platform up and running on the bench to reduce system development time and risk.
