Analog Devices has a new wideband transceiver within its RadioVerse design and technology ecosystem. The ADRV9026 is created to support base station applications comprising single and multi-standard 3G/4G/5G macrocell base stations, massive MIMO and small cell systems. The device, the company's fourth-generation wideband RF transceiver, provides quad-channel integration with the smallest size, lowest power, common-platform solution. The new software-defined transceiver supports both FDD and TDD standards, simplifying design and decreasing system size, power, weight and costs for 3G/4G/5G applications.
The RadioVerse design and technology ecosystem provides a one-stop radio design environment aimed at simplifying the radio development process for a broad array of markets and applications. The ecosystem comprises chip-level evaluation systems, rapid prototyping platforms, simulation tools and development kits and a global partnership network that offers multiple levels of design support.
