Product Details

The ADL5570 is a high linearity 2.3 GHz to 2.4 GHz power amplifier designed for WiMAX terminals using TDD operation at a duty cycle of 31%. With a gain of 29 dB and an output compression point of 31 dBm at 2.35 GHz, it can operate at an output power level up to 26 dBm while maintaining an EVM of ≤3% (OFDM 16 or 64 QAM) with a supply voltage of 3.5 V. PAE is 20% @ POUT = 25 dBm.

The ADL5570 RF input is matched on-chip and provides an input return loss of less than −10 dB. The open-collector output is externally matched with strip-line and external shunt capacitance.

The ADL5570 operates over a supply voltage range from 3.2 V to 4.2 V with a supply current of 440 mA burst rms when delivering 25 dBm (3.5 V supply). A low power mode is also available for operation at power levels of ≤10 dBm with optimized operating and quiescent currents of 100 mA and 70 mA, respectively. A standby mode is available that reduces the quiescent current to 1 mA, which is useful when a TDD terminal is receiving data.

The ADL5570 is fabricated in a GaAs HBT process and is packaged in a 4 mm × 4 mm, 16-lead, Pb-free RoHS-compliant LFCSP that uses an exposed paddle for excellent thermal impedance. It operates from −40°C to +85°C.

    Tools & Simulations


    Sys-Parameter Models for Keysight Genesys

    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.

    Design Tools


    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.

    Design Resources

    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.
