The ADF9010 is a fully integrated RF Tx modulator and Rx analog baseband front end that operates in the frequency range from 840 MHz to 960 MHz. The receive path consists of a fully differential I/Q baseband PGA, low-pass filter, and general signal conditioning before connecting to an Rx ADC for baseband conversion. The Rx LPF gain ranges from 3 dB to 24 dB, programmable in 3 dB steps. The Rx LPF features four programmable modes with cutoff frequencies of 330 kHz, 880 kHz, and 1.76 MHz, or the filter can be bypassed if necessary.
The transmit path consists of a fully integrated differential Tx direct I/Q upconverter with a high linearity PA driver amplifier. It converts a baseband I/Q signal to an RF carrier-based signal between 840 MHz and 960 MHz. The highly linear transmit signal path ensures low output distortion.
Complete local oscillator (LO) signal generation is integrated on chip, including the integer-N synthesizer and VCO, which generate the required I and Q signals for transmit I/Q upconver-sion. The LO signal is also available at the output to drive an external RF demodulator. Control of all the on-chip registers is via a simple 3-wire serial interface. The device operates with a power supply ranging from 3.15 V to 3.45 V and can be powered down when not in use.

Tools & Simulations
ADIsimPLL enables the rapid and reliable evaluation of new high performance PLL products from ADI. It is the most comprehensive PLL Synthesizer design and simulation tool available today. Simulations performed include all key non-linear effects that are significant in affecting PLL performance. ADIsimPLL removes at least one iteration from the design process, thereby speeding the design- to-market.
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
