Analog Devices Inc. RadioVerse™

Analog Devices Inc. RadioVerse™ technology and design ecosystem accelerates time-to-market by providing integrated RF transceivers, software API, and design support packages. Get access to robust documentation, to ADI’s EngineerZone® online technical support community, and more. RadioVerse provides integrated wideband RF transceiver evaluation boards that connect to an FPGA development platform. This allows for chip-level performance evaluation and rapid prototyping of complete wireless scenarios using a single hardware platform. The boards are supported by a toolkit that includes HDL, Linux drivers, software API, a GUI, and design files necessary to kick-start designs.

RadioVerse offers a one-stop radio design environment focused on simplifying the radio development process for a wide range of markets and applications. Get the latest innovations to market fast by leveraging:

• Rapid Prototyping Platforms
• Chip-level Evaluation Systems
• Software Simulation Tools
• Development Toolkits with Software API
• Robust Documentation
• Training and Education

Transceiver Technologies

Integrated wideband RF transceivers are system-on-chip radio solutions that replace as many as 20 high-performance discrete components and offer:

• Carrier-grade performance (zero IF and high linearity)
• Reduced Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)
• Ease of use (complete API, on-chip tracking self-calibration)
• Versatile platform for multiple designs and standards

Introducing RadioVerse
Applications For Radioverse Solutions

Wideband Solutions

RadioVerse SDR transceiver technologies offer several evaluation options, including prototyping platforms, full evaluation systems, software simulation tools, device drivers, and more.

Evaluation Software

This system is a software package consisting of a powerful Windows GUI, API source code, DLL, and Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). Additionally, the system includes a TCP/IP server to write in C#, MATLAB, LabView, and Python to interface the eval board. From there the system runs automated testing. The OS- and platform-independent API will integrate into the software, eliminating the need to write device-specific code.

Two download options are available. One option is the full package, including the GUI, HAL, DLL, API binary, etc. used with the evaluation hardware. The other option, intended to be integrated into a system, includes only API source code and the ARM firmware. Both are available via the download link.

Prototyping Software

This software package is available in binary and a publically-maintained source (in github, for complete transparency and revision control). It includes a powerful multi-platform GUI (Windows, Linux, OS X), HDL for Xilinx, and Altera SoC and fabric-only devices. Also provided is Linux kernel device driver code (in the Linux Industrial Input/Output [IIO] framework) and multi-platform (Windows, Linux, OS X) library support with multiple back ends (local, network, USB, etc.). In addition are multiple language/framework bindings (C, C++, C#, MATLAB, Simulink, Python, GNURadio) to interface to the eval board for waveform development and automated testing. Integrate any part of the prototyping platform (HDL, driver, or library) into systems with permissive licenses. The prototype is extensible to accept custom IP (physical layers, or full modems for end systems). The system includes a Board Support Package (BSP) for MathWorks HDL Workflow Advisor.

No O/S Software Driver

This software consists of generic device drivers purely written in generic/ANSI-C (compatible for most ANSI-C compilers that meet the iso9899:1990 specification) for a bare-metal, No-OS environment. These drivers can be ported to many different environments and run on many different types of processors, from generic 16-bit MCU to 64-bit processors. The No-OS drivers are designed to run on the Analog Devices HDL reference design but can also be run on processors that are either separated from the FPGA or integrated (hard or soft) in an SoC (FPGA + CPU) device. By using the No-OS drivers, writing device-specific code can be eliminated and directly integrated into end product software.
