Analog Devices Inc. ADRV9004 Dual Narrow/Wideband RF Transceiver

Analog Devices Inc. ADRV9004 Dual Narrow/Wideband RF Transceiver combines dual-channel transmitters, dual-channel receivers, integrated synthesizers, and digital signal processing functions into a single package. The ADRV9004 is a high-performance, highly linear, high dynamic range transceiver designed for performance vs. power consumption system optimization. The device is configurable and ideally suited to demanding, low-power, portable, and battery-powered equipment. The ADRV9004 operates from 30MHz to 6000MHz and covers the UHF, VHF, and ISM (industrial, scientific, and medical) bands, and cellular frequency bands in narrow-band (kHz) and wideband operations up to 40MHz. The ADRV9004 is capable of both TDD and FDD operation.

The ADRV9004 RF Transceiver consists of direct conversion signal paths with state-of-the-art noise figure and linearity. Each complete receiver and transmitter subsystem includes DC offset correction, Quadrature Error Correction (QEC), and programmable digital filters which eliminate the need for these functions in the digital baseband. In addition, several auxiliary functions, such as auxiliary Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs), auxiliary Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs), and General-Purpose Inputs/Outputs (GPIOs), are integrated to provide additional monitoring and control capability.

The fully integrated Phase-Locked Loops (PLLs) provide high performance, low-power, fractional N-frequency synthesis for the transmitter, receiver, and clock sections. Careful design and layout techniques provide the isolation required in high-performance personal radio applications.

All Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) and loop filter components are integrated to minimize the external component count. The Local Oscillators (LOs) have flexible configuration options and include fast lock modes.

The ADRV9004 Transceiver includes low-power sleep and monitor modes to save power and extend the battery life of portable devices while monitoring communications.

The ADRV9004 core can be powered directly from 1.0V, 1.3V, and 1.8V regulators and is controlled via a standard 4-wire serial port. Other voltage supplies are used to provide proper digital interface levels and to optimize the receiver, transmitter, and auxiliary converter performance.

High data rate and low data rate interfaces are supported using configurable CMOS or Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) Serial Synchronous Interface (SSI) choice.

The Analog Devices Inc. ADRV9004 RF Transceiver is offered in a 12mm × 12mm, 196-ball Chip Scale Package Ball Grid Array (CSP_BGA) with a -40°C to +110°C junction temperature range.
