ADRV9026 & ADRV9029 Prototyping Platform User Guide

The EVAL-ADRV9026/ADRV9029, are FMC radio cards for the ADRV9026 respectively ADRV9029, highly integrated, radio frequency (RF) agile transceivers offering four independently controlled transmitters, dedicated observation receiver inputs for monitoring each transmitter channel, four independently controlled receivers, integrated synthesizers, and digital signal processing functions providing complete transceiver solutions. The devices provide the performance demanded by cellular infrastructure applications, such as small cell base station radios, macro 3G/4G/5G systems, and massive multiple in/multiple out (MIMO) base stations.

The EVAL-ADRV9026/ADRV9029 radio cards designed to showcase the ADRV9026 (quad-channel wideband RF transceiver) and ADRV9029 (quad-channel wideband RF transceiver with integrated DPD & CFR). The radio cards provide a 4×4 transceiver platform for device evaluation. All peripherals necessary for the radio card to operate include a separate high efficiency power circuit board, and a high-performance clocking solution included on the radio board. Connecting one of the radio cards with the FPGA motherboard ADS9-V2EBZ through the FMC connector form a complete evaluation platform for ADRV9026 and ADRV9029. The ADRV9026 evaluation kit can also be used to evaluate the performance of the ADRV9010.

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.
