QIQ Systems software, in combination with various Analog Devices evaluation modules, enables you to validate the performance of ADI wideband RF transceiver chips by turning the module into a vector signal generator and vector signal analyzer. This allows you to evaluate the performance of the chip using your waveform of interest. With QIQ Systems software, you can complete your evaluation in hours or days, rather than weeks or months. Our software enables quick eval cycles so you can turn your project into a product.
When you are done with the eval process, QIQ Systems software products allow you to repurpose your eval system to be used as a vector signal generator or vector signal analyzer during development. This reduces the need for expensive signal generators or signal analyzers during development. It can support various AD936x, AD9371, ADRV9009 evaluation and prototype platforms.
