The ADL5321 is a broadband, linear driver RF amplifier that operates at frequencies from 2.3 GHz to 4.0 GHz. The device can be used in a wide variety of wired and wireless applications, including ISM, WLL, PCS, GSM, CDMA, and W-CDMA.
The ADL5321 operates with a 5 V supply voltage and a supply current of 90 mA.
The ADL5321 is fabricated on the GaAs HBT process. The device is packaged in a low cost SOT-89 that uses an exposed paddle for excellent thermal impedance. It operates from −40°C to +105°C, and a fully populated evaluation board is available.
The ADL5320 is a companion part to the ADL5321 that operates at similar performance from 400 MHz to 2700 MHz.

Evaluation Kits (1)
ADL5321-EVALZ is a fully populated, 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation, it requires a single 5 V/300 mA supply. The 5 V supply should be connected to the test loops labeled VCC and GND. The RF input is applied to the SMA connector labeled RFIN. The RF output is available at the SMA connector labeled RFOUT. To facilitate tuning for different frequencies, the RF input and RF output traces are free of solder mask and have index markings for ease of component placement. The evaluation board ships with tuning components that are optimized for operation from 2500 MHz to 2700 MHz. The ADL5321 data sheet provides recommended tuning components for other frequencies.
Tools & Simulations
Sys-Parameter models contain behavioral parameters, such as P1dB, IP3, gain, noise figure and return loss, which describe nonlinear and linear characteristics of a device.
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.
