Analog Devices Launches RF Transceiver for Mission-Critical Communication Networks

Analog Devices has announced the first product in their latest series of RF transceivers which provides the highest dynamic range on the market and is suitable for a wide range of commercial and military applications. The ADRV9002 is high performance transceiver and is ideal for mission-critical communications applications, such as first responder radios, private LTE networks and SATCOM, where size, weight and power are key design considerations. This RF transceiver comes as the latest addition to their award-winning RadioVerseTM design and ecosystem.

Mission-critical communication networks are essential to ensure our safety. The difficulty for these networks to decipher complex signals increases as the radio spectrum becomes more populated. The ADRV9002 RF transceiver can correctly decode a signal in heavily congested spectrum. This helps in developing radio platforms that are power and performance scalable across a broad range of commercial and military applications.

ADRV9002 RF Transceiver Features and Benefits 

  • Offers best-in-class dynamic range and capable of deciphering wideband and challenging narrow band operations within a single device 
  • Operates from 30 MHz to 6 GHz 
  • Provides receiver dynamic range of -150 dBc/Hz and a highly linear transmitter 
  • First radio transceiver designed to enable narrowband and traditional wideband signals from 12KHz to 40MHz 
  • Capable of handling voice, data and imaging or video signals 
  • Incorporates digital signal radio correction algorithms, AGC, DPD, frequency hopping and channel filtering 
  • Ability to dynamically adjust performance and power 

The ADRV9002 is now available for purchase and comes in a 12 x 12 mm, 196-ball chip scale ball grid array packaging with a price of $257.40 per 1000 units.

ADI’s RadioVerse includes tools, design resources, and support to accelerate radio development timelines. The ecosystem includes rapid prototyping platforms, chip-level evaluation systems, reference designs, simulation tools, and development kits. There is a resource of global network partners for design ideas and RF platforms, including reference designs and solution modules. Technology resources include HDL and full-system level software reference designs on GitHub, compatible FPGA development carriers, and chip-level evaluation systems.
