The ADAR1000 is a 4-channel, X and Ku frequency band, beamforming core chip for phased arrays. This device operates in half-duplex between receive and transmit modes. In receive mode, input signals pass through four receive channels and are combined and output at the common RF_IO pin. In transmit mode, the RF_IO input signal is split and passes through the four transmit channels. In both modes, the ADAR1000 provides a ≥31 dB gain adjustment range and a full 360° phase adjustment range in each radio frequency (RF) channel, with 6-bit resolution (less than ≤0.5 dB and 2.8°, respectively).

A simple 4-wire serial port interface (SPI) controls all of the on-chip registers. In addition, two address pins allow SPI control of up to four devices on the same serial lines. Dedicated transmit and receive load pins also provide synchronization of all ADAR1000 chips in the same array, and a single pin controls fast switching between the transmit and receive modes.

The ADAR1000 is fabricated in a silicon-germanium, bipolar CMOS (BiCMOS) process. The device is available in a compact, 88-terminal, 7 mm × 7 mm, LGA package and is specified from −40°C to +85°C.

APPLICATIONS

  • Phased array radar
  • Satellite communications systems

Keysight SystemVue model is available. Please contact ADI at beamformer@analog.com.

PathWave System DesignThe ADAR1000 Keysight SystemVue model is based on measured data and captures gain, phase, NF, IP3 & P1dB across frequency, for both transmit and receive paths. The model comes with a complete phased array workspace wherein different array configurations can chosen and beam array patterns simulated.

ADAR1000 Evaluation Board

Features and Benefits

For Rev B and Rev C/D please review schematics found below.
More info can be found on the ADAR1000 Wiki page.
  • Based on the ADAR1000 4-channel beamformer core chip
  • Controllable through SPI
  • Multiple forms of digital interface (3.3 V and 1.8 V logic)
  • On-board logic level translators with 1.8 V low dropout regulator for supply
  • Software control from a Windows-based PC through USB

Product Detail

The ADAR1000-EVALZ evaluation board is designed for evaluating the performance of the ADAR1000, a 4-channel, X band and Ku band beamforming core chip for radar systems. All the radio frequency (RF) input/output channels and detector inputs are brought out to Subminiature Version A (SMA) connectors. On-board logic level translators convert the on-chip 1.8 V logic signals to 3.3 V for interfacing to external controllers running on 3.3 V. Two identical 20-pin, dual row rectangular headers provide the digital interface signals to allow daisy-chaining up to four ADAR1000-EVALZ evaluation boards together. A 24-pin connector provides control and bias outputs to interface to four external transmit and receive (T/R) modules with each ADAR1000-EVALZ evaluation board.

The ADAR1000-EVALZ evaluation board can be used with an Analog Devices, Inc., system demonstration platform (SDP) SDP-S or SDP-B board (supplied separately), which allows connection to a Microsoft Windows®-based PC through the USB for controlling of all the ADAR1000 device functions.

For full details on the ADAR1000, see the ADAR1000 data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using this evaluation board.
