The ADI AD9986 4T2R Direct RF Transmitter and Observation Receiver is designed for 2-antenna and 4-antenna transmitter applications requiring a wide bandwidth observation receiver path for the digital predistortion. The AD9986 provides up to a 6GSPS complex transmit and receive data rate in single-channel mode. The device supports a maximum radio channel bandwidth of 1.2GHz and 2.4GHz for the transmit and receive paths, respectively (4T2R). The AD9986 features a 16 lane, 24.75Gbps JESD204C or 15.5Gbps JESD204B serial data port, an on-chip clock multiplier, and digital signal processing. These capabilities are targeted at multiband, direct-to-RF radio applications.
The AD9986 RF Transmitter and Observation Receiver is available in a 15mm × 15mm, 324-ball BGA with 0.8mm pitch.
