Richardson RFPD Introduces New Integrated Wideband RF Receiver and Transmitter from Analog Devices

ADRV9008-1 and ADRV9008-2 part of ADI’s RadioVerse™ technology and design ecosystem

June 26, 2018 – Geneva, Ill.: Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for a new multi-function RF receiver and multi-function RF transmitter from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI).

The ADRV9008-1 is a highly-integrated, dual RF, agile receiver offering integrated synthesizers and digital signal processing functions. The device delivers a versatile combination of the high performance and low power consumption required by 3G/4G/5G macrocell, frequency division duplex (FDD), base station applications.

The ADRV9008-2 is a highly-integrated, RF agile transmit subsystem offering dual channel transmitters, observation path receiver, integrated synthesizers, and digital signal processing functions. Its performance and low power consumption make it ideal for 2G/3G/4G/5G macro cell base stations and active antenna applications.
