May 11, 2020 – Mouser Electronics, a distributor of Electronic components focused on introducing new products and offering extensive inventory, is now stocking Analog Devices, Inc.’s ADRV9026 quad-channel wideband RF transceiver. This compact, low-power 4T4R solution is suitable for cellular Base Transceiver Station (BTS) Remote Radio Units (RRU), compliant with cellular systems such as Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (mMIMO), small cells and large 3G/4G/5G systems High performance requirements for infrastructure applications.
The Analog Devices ADRV9026 transceiver, available from Mouser Electronics, features a highly integrated design with a smaller footprint that increases form factor flexibility for radio design projects. The ADRV9026 transceiver supports up to 200 MHz of receive bandwidth, covering frequencies from 650 MHz to 6 GHz. The device features four independently controlled differential 450 MHz transmitters and four independently controlled receivers, and integrates synthesizers, filters and digital signal processing to create advanced transceiver solutions.
Compared to previous generations, the transceiver consumes 50% less power, increases radio density to support more antennas, and supports Open Radio Access Networks (ORAN) at lower cost and system power small cell design. The transceiver uses a common platform design for 3G/4G/5G systems to help reduce cost and complexity in many applications, and its flexible design also supports a modular architecture for scalable radio solutions.
To facilitate development, Mouser also stocks a complete ADRV9026 evaluation system that includes the ADS9-V2EBZ FPGA carrier board and ADRV9026-HB/PCBZ (2.8 GHz to 6 GHz) and ADRV9026-MB/PCBZ (650 MHz to 2.8 GHz) radio cards . The radio cards provide a 4×4 transceiver platform for device evaluation that contains all peripherals required for each radio card to operate, including a separate high-efficiency circuit board. The system comes with compatible evaluation software available for download, including API libraries, Windows GUI, and binary images for FPGA configuration.
