Product DetailsThe ADL5324 incorporates a dynamically adjustable biasing circuit that allows for the customization of OIP3 and P1dB performance from 3.3 V to 5 V, without the need for an external bias resistor. This feature gives the designer the ability to tailor driver amplifier performance to the specific needs of the design. This feature also creates the opportunity for dynamic biasing of the driver amplifier where a variable supply is used to allow for full 5 V biasing under large signal conditions, and then reduced supply voltage when signal levels are smaller and lower power consumption is desirable. This scalability reduces the need to evaluate and inventory multiple driver amplifiers for different output power requirements, from 25 dBm to 29 dBm output power levels.
The ADL5324 also delivers excellent ACPR vs. output power and bias voltage. The driver can deliver greater than 17 dBm of output power at 2140 MHz, while achieving an ACPR of −55 dBc at 5 V. If the bias is reduced to 3.3 V, the −55 dBc ACPR output power only minimally reduces to 15 dBm.

Evaluation Kits (2)
ADL5324-EVALZ is a fully populated, 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation, it requires a single 5 V/500 mA supply. The 5 V supply should be connected to the test loops labeled VSUP 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 2110 MHz to 2170 MHz. The ADL5324 datasheet provides recommended tuning components for other frequencies.
The AD-PZSDR2400TDD-EB is a 2.4GHz TDD analog module designed to work with the AD9361, a high performance, highly integrated RF transceiver intended for use in RF applications, such as 3G and 4G base station and test equipment applications, and software defined radios. The AD-PZSDR2400TDD-EB is affectionately dubbed the first 'RF personality card'. It plugs into the ADRV1CRR-FMC carrier card. 35mm U.FL coaxial cables connect the card to the ADRV9361-Z7035 SDR SOM providing access to the transmit and receive inputs of the AD9361. Information on the card, how to use it, the design package that surrounds it, and the software which can make it work, can be found on the wiki page.
The purpose of the AD-PZSDR2400TDD-EB is to provide the user with a path to condition the transmit or receive signals of the AD9361. Selection of TX or RX path is achieved by the 200MHz to 2.7GHz SPDT switch HMC546 controlled by the FPGA and accompanying software. The transmit path consists of a 2.4GHz filter, half watt driver amplifier ADL5324 and 2 watt power amplifier HMC921. The receive path consists of the same 2.4GHz filter as well as a low loss LNA HMC669.
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.
Product Selection Guide (1)
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.
