NORWOOD, Mass. -- June 4, 2013

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) today introduced three RF and microwave ICs
designed for high-performance transmitters and receivers used in
high-dynamic-range applications, such as wireless infrastructure, defense
systems, industrial, microwave point-to-point radios and more. The new
products offer breakthrough performance and expand ADI’s portfolio of more
than 1,000 high-performance RF ICs covering the entire signal chain, from
antenna to bits and back. Featured in Booth #2411 at the International
Microwave Symposium in Seattle, Wash., June 2-7, the new devices include:

  *Incorporating ADI’s leading high-performance broadband power detection
    technology, the ADL6010 microwave power detector offers unprecedented
    linearity and stability over temperature. Unlike alternative devices based
    on commonly used non-linear and non-temperature-stable Schottky diodes,
    the ADL6010 features a simple, proprietary linearization system that
    eliminates distortion due to source loading—an important benefit in
    applications where a low-ratio coupler is used to extract a sample of the
    primary signal. The ADL6010’s linearization system achieves leading
    accuracy and improves the temperature performance to ±0.5 dB over the
    range of -40°C to +85°C. The ADL6010 microwave detector is accurate from
    500 MHz to 40 GHz, has a 50-ohm input impedance and an input range of -30
    dBm to 15 dBm.
  *Designed for high performance digital pre-distortion (DPD) receivers, the
    ADRF6620 provides a full-featured solution in a compact form factor. The
    device integrates a 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz wideband synthesizer, an active
    mixer, a high-dynamic-range digital VGA, RF DSA, 4:1 RF input switch, RF
    balun and LDO. The ADRF6620 offers significant bill of material savings
    while maintaining low noise and high linearity performance. The 4:1 RF
    input switch makes the ADRF6620 ideal for DPD receivers in MIMO
    infrastructure applications. With an OIP3 of up to 44 dBm from RF input to
    DGA output, the ADRF6620 is well suited for high-performance UMTS, LTE-A
    and MC-GSM DPD applications.
  *Designed for new high-bandwidth microwave point-to-point receivers, the
    ADRF6518 is a high-dynamic-range, low-noise, dual-channel baseband VGA
    with dual 63 MHz programmable low-pass filters and dual power detectors.
    The device offers significant bill of materials savings by replacing
    discrete filters and amplifiers and replacing them with a highly
    integrated programmable bandwidth and gain device. The ADRF6518 features
    excellent channel-to-channel match and flexible gain control and can be
    used in receivers supporting up to 112-MHz channel bandwidth, as well as
    new E-Band receivers with up to 1-GHz of channel bandwidth. The new VGA is
    capable of rejecting large out-of-band interferers while amplifying the
    desired signal, reducing the bandwidth and dynamic range requirements of
    the ADC.
