Product DetailsThe ADL5530 is a broadband, fixed-gain, linear amplifier that operates at frequencies up to 1000 MHz. The device can be used in a wide variety of wired and wireless devices, including cellular, broadband, CATV, and LMDS/MMDS applications.
The ADL5530 operates with supply voltages of 3 V or 5 V with a supply current of 110 mA.
The ADL5530 is fabricated on a GaAs pHEMPT process. The device is packaged in a 3 mm × 2 mm LFCSP that uses an exposed paddle for excellent thermal impedance. It operates from −40°C to +85°C. A fully populated evaluation board is also available.
- VCO buffers
- General purpose Tx/Rx amplification

Evaluation Kits (2)
ADL5530-EVALZ is a 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation it requires a single 5 V/100 mA power supply. The 5 V power supply should be connected to the test loops labeled J5VPOS and J6GND. Alternatively, the power supply connections may be made via the two pin header, W-1. The RF input is applied to the SMA connector labeled IN1. The RF output is available at the SMA connector labeled OUT1.
The AD-FREQCVT1-EBZ is an add on board for the FMCOMMS3/4/5 boards which contain the AD9361. While the complete chip level design package can be found on the ADI product pages, 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 analog wiki site.
The purpose of the AD-FREQCVT1-EBZ is frequency up or down conversion to allow the AD9361 to operate down to 1MHz.

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.
