Analog Devices’ New 30 MHz - 6 GHz High Performance, Highly Integrated Transceiver

Register to learn about the performance of Analog’s ADRV9002 transceiver, the basics of the evaluation platform, an RF Front-end that attaches to the platform, and design of various modules using the product.

Overview

Analog Devices (ADI) has introduced a very high-performance transceiver in a very small package that gives the user tradeoffs of power consumption vs performance, allowing it to be used in many applications integrated transceivers have not historically been used in before.

This webinar will introduce the ADRV9002, a high performance, highly integrated transceiver from ADI. We will be demonstrating how to set up and get an eval platform running as well as demonstrating an RF front end that attaches to the platform.

Attendees will learn key attributes of the GUI including the DPD performance of the transmit section. The presenters will also demonstrate the high-performance receiver's ability to receive (and decode) multiple 12 kHz channels in a 40 MHz bandwidth simultaneously, showing its ability to provide the performance required by a narrowband system even while receiving a wideband signal.

Finally, the webinar will introduce design partners that have ADRV9002-based modules available and can make up for lack of experience or lack of time in your own engineering team. You can use their modules to allow your software team to get a head start on their developments and could use their design experience to allow you to complete your design very quickly.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about a new high performance, small size, low power integrated transceiver, its setup and performance, and options to reduce the time it takes you to complete a design
  • Experience the ADRV9002 and see its performance without needing to get in the lab
  • Learn about "make versus buy" options and tools that will allow you to demonstrate your concept before doing a full design
  • Learn about options that allow you to get quickly to your final design
