The ADL5606 is a broadband, two-stage, 1 W RF driver amplifier that operates over a frequency range of 1800 MHz to 2700 MHz. The device can be used in a wide variety of wired and wireless applications, including ISM, MC-GSM, W-CDMA, TD-SCDMA, and LTE.
The ADL5606 operates on a 5 V supply voltage and a supply current of 362 mA. The driver also incorporates a fast power-up/power-down function for TDD applications, applications that require a power saving mode, and applications that intermittently transmit data.
The ADL5606 is fabricated on a GaAs HBT process and is packaged in a compact 4 mm × 4 mm, 16-lead LFCSP that uses an exposed paddle for excellent thermal impedance. The ADL5606 operates from −40°C to +85°C. A fully populated evaluation board tuned to 2140 MHz is also available.
- Wireless infrastructure
- Automated test equipment
- ISM/AMR applications
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)
ADL5606-EVALZ is a 4-layer, FR4-equivalent printed circuit board, and configured for 2140 MHz operation. It requires 5V/362 mA power supply for normal operation. The 5V power supply should be connected to the vector leads, labeled VCC1 and GND1. RFIN is the RF input port, and RFOUT is the RF output port. Both ports are populated with edge-mounted SMA connectors.
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.
Reference Designs (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.
