Product Details

The ADRV-DPD1/PCBZ is a 24 dBm per path, 2 × 2 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) radio board, which uses the AD9375, a highly integrated radio frequency (RF) transceiver with integrated digital predistortion (DPD). The radio board is designed to be used with the dual connector interposer board to interface with the EVAL-TPG-ZYNQ3 or other Xilinx® or Avnet evaluation boards for the Xilinx Zynq-7000 field programmable gate array (FPGA) platform, which has a dual core ARM Cortex®-A9 processor running a Linux® variant.

The AD9375 small cell evaluation software (SCES), AD9375 Small Cell Radio Reference Design Evaluation Software GUI, can configure and control the ADRV-DPD1/PCBZ board. Note that the Mykonos transceiver evaluation software (MTES) and DPD graphical user interface (GUI) software are not compatible with the ADRV-DPD1/PCBZ.

Full specifications on the AD9375 are available in the AD9375 data sheet available from Analog Devices, Inc., and must be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the evaluation board.
