Multiple ADRV9009-ZU11EG’s can be synchronized together enabling a complete solution for complex multi-stream applications ensuring end-to-end deterministic latency. The ADRV9009 Transceivers include integrated LO and phase synchronization. Overall system frequency & phase synchronization is maintained with a clock tree structure using ADI high performance low jitter HMC7044 devices, making it ideal for applications requiring RF phase alignment with a large number of channels.

The ADRV9009-ZU11EG has extensive I/O capability. Combined with the ADRV2CRR-FMC evaluation carrier board a variety of high speed I/O can be used, including USB3, USB2, PCIe 3.0 x8, QSFP+, SFP+, 1Gb Ethernet x2, and CPRI capability. An additional High Pin Count FMC Daughter Board can be plugged into the carrier board with a further two ADRV9009 Transceivers increasing to a total of Eight Tx and Rx channels. A design can easily be evaluated and then integrated seamlessly into a custom carrier for further prototyping, or a final product greatly accelerating time to market.

  • Platform development environment support includes Industry standard Linux Industrial I/O (IIO) Applications, MATLAB®, Simulink®, and GNU Radio, and streaming interfaces for custom C, C++, python, and C# applications
  • HDL reference designs and drivers to allow zero day development
