Improve your time-to-market with this Richardson RFPD Design Accelerator.
The module is designed to interface directly with software-defined radios, such as those commonly implemented using Analog Devices’ Mixed-Signal Front-Ends (MxFE evaluation kits available here and here), or similar software defined radio, to obtain a complete mmWave system.
Up to four modules can be combined in parallel to create complex MIMO applications.
IF and IQ baseband input/output, TDD and FDD modes, internal and external LO reference.
Control is provided via either SPI or USB interfaces. The interfaces can be cascaded (in series, up to 4 units) to support a single, external controller.
Eliminates the need for multiple controllers and simplifies timing and synchronization between units.
Stacking up to 4 RadioThorium modules is ideal for phased array applications.
