Product Details

The transmit signal front end (MxFE®) is a highly integrated device with 16-bit, 12 GSPS maximum sample rate radio frequency (RF) digital-to-analog converter (DAC) core and 12-bit, 6 GSPS rate RF analog-to-digital (ADC) core. The AD9082 is able to support four transmitter channels and two receiver channels with 4D2A configuration. This product is well suited for two- and four-antenna transmitter applications requiring wideband ADCs for the digital predistortion observation path. It features a 16-lane, 24.75 Gbps JESD204C or 15.5 Gbps JESD204B data transceiver port, an on-chip clock multiplier, and digital signal processing capability targeted at multiband direct-to-RF radio applications. It supports up to 6 GSPS complex transmit and receive data rates in single channel mode. The maximum radio band spacing supported in multichannel modes is 1.2 GHz.The AD9082 features a bypassable interpolator and decimator for achieving ultrawideband capability along with low latency loop back and frequency hopping modes targeted at phase array radar system and electronic warfare jammer applications.
