Wideband IF Receiver Chip provides wide dynamic range.

November 20, 2014

IF subsystem-on-a-chip, AD6676, uses programmable continuous-time bandpass sigma delta ADC technology to digitize IF signals from 70–450 MHz. Single-chip solution can reduce complexity of receiver designs while promoting frequency planning flexibility and optimal instantaneous dynamic range. Implementation in deep sub-micron CMOS allows oversampling by providing digitized bandwidth of up to 160 MHz, and combination of features enables reconfigurable radio architectures. Read More
