The ADRF6850 is a highly integrated broadband quadrature demodulator, frequency synthesizer, and variable gain amplifier (VGA). The device covers an operating frequency range from 100 MHz to 1000 MHz for use in both narrow-band and wideband communications applications, performing quadrature demodulation from IF directly to baseband frequencies.
The ADRF6850 demodulator includes a high modulus fractional-N frequency synthesizer with integrated VCO, providing better than 1 Hz frequency resolution, and a 60 dB gain control range provided by a front-end VGA.
Control of all the on-chip registers is through a user-selected SPI interface or I2C interface. The device operates from a single power supply ranging from 3.15 V to 3.45 V.

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)
The ADRF6850-EVALZ evaluates the performance of the ADRF6850. The evaluation board contains the ADRF6850, a connector suited for the SDP-S controller board, power supply connectors, subminiature Version A (SMA) connectors, and on-board 13.5MHz reference oscillator. The ADRF6850-EVALZ requires an SDP-S controller board and a Labview-based software to program the ADRF6850.
The ADRF6850 evaluation board documentation provides additional information and should be consulted when using the evaluation board.

Tools & Simulations
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.
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.
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.View our quality and reliability program and certifications for more information.
