Billed as the industry’s widest bandwidth RF transceiver, the ADRV9009 RF transceiver is a single-chip time-domain duplex (TDD) IC delivering twice the bandwidth (200 MHz) of previous-generation devices and replaces as many as 20 components, cutting power in half and package size by 60%. The ADRV9009 meets the rigorous antenna density and expanded network capacity requirements of emerging 5G wireless infrastructure equipment and aerospace and defense systems.
The ADRV9009 is also the industry’s first RF transceiver to support all existing cellular standards. The device is tunable over a range of 75 MHz to 6 GHz to support 2G/3G/4G services, which allows cellular equipment manufacturers to adopt a single, compact radio design across all band and power variants.
Because of its wide bandwidth, low power, and small form factor, the ADRV9009 allows designers to meet the escalating radio-channel-count requirements of 5G massive MIMO equipment. The new RF transceiver can also be used in the design of portable, laboratory-grade 5G test and measurement devices which are required for field testing of cellular and IoT networks.
For aerospace and defense systems, the ADRV9009 addresses the high-performance requirements of both wideband and narrowband applications such as military communications and signal intelligence. The new RF transceiver platform also features fast frequency hopping for enhanced link security and spectrum efficiency.
For both advanced cellular and phased array radar systems, the ADRV9009 simplifies digital beamforming design by handling local oscillator (LO) synchronization on-chip, eliminating the need for external LOs.
To accelerate customers’ time to market with the ADRV9009 RF transceiver, the RadioVerse ecosystem provides a JESD204B FPGA integration framework, a production-ready RF system-on-module (RF-SoM) with dual ADRV9009 devices, and a global partnership network to provide customers additional design and technical services.
