The ADRV9009-W/PCBZ is a radio card designed to showcase the ADRV9009, the widest bandwidth, highest performance RF integrated transceiver. The radio card provides a single 2x2 transceiver platform for device evaluation and rapid prototyping of radio solutions. All peripherals necessary for the radio card to operate including a high efficiency switcher only power supply solution, and a high performance clocking solution are populated on the board. The ADRV9009-W/PCBZ is a single-chip TDD solution of dual receivers, dual transmitters with observation receiver.
The ADRV9009-W/PCBZ operates over a wide tuning range 75MHz – 6GHz, however the RF performance is tempered by the very wide band front end match. This board is primarily intended for system investigation and bringing up various waveforms from a software team before custom hardware is complete. The objective being for designers to see waveforms, but not being concerned about the last 1dB or 1% EVM of performance.
