Product DetailsThe ADL5601 is a broadband, 15 dB linear amplifier that operates at frequencies up to 4.0 GHz. The device can be used in a wide variety of cellular, cable television (CATV), military, and instru-mentation equipment.
The ADL5601 provides the highest dynamic range available from an internally matched gain block. This is accomplished by providing extremely low noise figures and very high OIP3 speci-fications simultaneously, across the entire 4.0 GHz frequency range.
The ADL5601 provides a gain of 15 dB, which is stable over frequency, temperature, and supply voltage, as well as from device to device. The device is internally matched to 50 Ω at the input and output, making the ADL5601 very easy to implement in a wide variety of applications. Only input/output ac coupling capacitors, power supply decoupling capacitors, and an external inductor are required for operation.
The ADL5601 is fabricated on an InGaP heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) process and has an ESD rating of ±1.5 kV (Class 1C). The device is available in a thermally efficient SOT-89 package.
The ADL5601 consumes 83 mA on a single 5 V supply and is fully specified for operation from −40°C to +85°C.
A fully populated RoHS-compliant evaluation board is available.
Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (1)
ADL5601-EVALZ is a fully populated, 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation it requires a single 5 V/200 mA power supply. The 5 V power 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.
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.
Used to analyze ADI RF Gain Blocks in the Agilent ADS modeling environment.
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.
