The ADRV9002NP/W1/PCBZ (low band, 30MHz – 3GHz) and ADRV9002NP/W2/PCBZ (high band, 3GHz – 6GHz) are FMC radio cards for the ADRV9002 highly integrated RF transceiver, offering dual channel
transmitters and dual channel receivers, integrated synthesizers, and
digital signal processing functions. The IC delivers a versatile
combination of high performance and low power consumption required by
battery powered radio equipment and can operate in both FDD and TDD modes.
The ADRV9002 operates from 30 MHz to 6000 MHz covering the VHF, licensed
and unlicensed cellular bands, and ISM bands. The IC is capable of
supporting both narrowband and wideband standards up to 40MHz bandwidth on
both receive and transmit.
While the complete chip level design package can be found on the ADI web site, information on the card and how to use it, the design package that surrounds it, and the software which can make it work can be found here.
People who follow the flow that is outlined, have a much better experience with things. However, like many things, documentation is never as complete as it should be. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

All the products described on this page include ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive devices. Electrostatic charges as high as 4000V readily accumulate on the human body or test equipment and can discharge without detection.
Although the boards feature ESD protection circuitry, permanent damage may occur on devices subjected to high-energy electrostatic discharges. Therefore, proper ESD precautions are recommended to avoid performance degradation or loss of functionality. This includes removing static charge on external equipment, cables, or antennas before connecting to the device.
