The AD9988 is a highly integrated device with four 16-bit, 12 GSPS maximum sample rate, RF digital-to-analog converter (DAC) cores, and four 12-bit, 4 GSPS rate, RF analog-to-digital converter (ADC) cores. The device supports four transmitter channels and four receiver channels with a 4T4R configuration. This product is well suited for four-antenna TDD transmitter applications, where the receiver path can be shared between receiver and observation modes. The GPIO pins can be configured and toggled to support different user modes, while phase coherency is maintained. The maximum radio channel bandwidth supported is 1.2 GHz in a 4T4R configuration and a sample resolution of 16 bits. The AD9988 features a 16-lane 24.75 Gbps JESD204C or 15.5 Gbps JESD204B serial data port that allows up to eight lanes per transmit/receive link, an on-chip clock multiplier, and digital signal processing capability targeted at multiband direct to RF radio applications.
