Analog Devices Press Release - February 15, 2011

Educational Webcast Shows Engineers How to Manage RF Interface Connections in Receive and Transmit Paths

- ADI’s Interfacing RF Components webcast to air February 16.

Visit Analog Devices

NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a world leader in semiconductors for high-performance signal processing applications, will air its Interfacing RF Components webcast on February 16, 2011, at 12:00 pm EST. The webcast, which is for engineers seeking design and system-level support, examines RF (radio frequency) interface design challenges and introduces best practices to help engineers get the most out of their RF circuits. Viewers will learn about the interfacing of stages within the RF receive and transmit paths and explores harmonics, attenuation, and other challenges that may arise when RF stages are not properly connected. The material is presented by Analog Devices applications engineer and RF design expert Ian Collins.

RF design support information discussed in the webcast includes the following:

  • ADIsimRF signal chain calculator design tool is easy to use. Cascaded gain, noise figure, IP3 and P1dB, as well as total power consumption are calculated. The number of stages can be varied up to a maximum of 15:
  • ADI’s Circuits from the Lab™ reference circuits include circuit designs for the complete implementation of the analog portion of a broadband direct conversion transmitter (analog baseband in, RF out):

Analog Devices offers the broadest portfolio of RF ICs covering the entire RF signal chain from industry-leading high-performance discrete RF function blocks to highly-integrated multi-functional single-chip RF solutions. These products are also supported by a wide range of free design tools, evaluation boards and other design resources to ease the development of RF systems.

Webcasts from Analog Devices ADI’s webcasts cover topics relating to relevant challenges in designing with semiconductors and provide engineers with access to online design materials on a variety of solutions-oriented issues. Each webcast is followed by a Q&A and with the opportunity to download the presentation. For more than 45 years, ADI has been an engineering resource to help make it easier for customers to get their jobs done. To access the complete archive of webcasts for engineers, please visit:
