With the further development of massive MIMO applications, it brings greater challenging requirement for power consumption, inter channel matching and isolation of the system.

  ADRV9026 is the fourth generation broadband RF transceiver of ADI. It adopts the latest 28nm process. Compared with the previous generation product (ADRV9009), it improves the integration twice under the same power consumption, then improve the radio density to support more antennas. At the same time, it also improves the isolation of chip ports.

  ADRV9026 supports frequency division duplex (FDD) and time division duplex (TDD) standards, which can help simplify the design of 3G / 4G / 5G applications while reducing system power, size, weight and cost. ADRV9026 can be used to support base station applications, including single standard and multi standard 3G / 4G / 5G macro cell base stations, massive MIMO (M-MIMO) and small cell systems.

  As a partner of ADI, Xiamen Hejiaxing (HJX) have launched HJX-ADRV9026-SDR in combination with RadioVerseTM technology, which will help customers develop systems with more powerful features and functions than before.

Product Details



  HJX-ADRV9026-SDR is highly customizable. It can provide wide bandwidth and tuning range for various applications. It includes one ADRV9026 Quad-channel transceiver and one Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale plus MPSOC XCZU11EG. It makes the whole platform obtain powerful data processing ability. Meanwhile, it has a 1GB DDR4 equipped for SoC programming system and has a 512MB DDR4 equipped for SOC programming logic part. It provides great flexibility for the development of custom applications. Besides, it provides 32GB EMMC flash memory for data storage and a Nor Flash 64MB as user flash, and also reserves additional options to start the system via SD card.

  For the clock circuit of HJX-ADRV9026-SDR, it select AD9545 as the main clock chip, plus clock buffer to expand the number of clock channels. Please kindly note that AD954X series chips support synchronous source input, such as GPS second pulse, IEEE1588 etc.

  RF front end of HJX-ADRV9026-SDR provides hardware support for ADRV9026 RX QEC, TX QEC and LO Leakage calibration. At the same time, this board provides front LNA to ensure better receiver performance, and also provides gain block at the transmitter to ensure high output signal power. Since the ADRV9026 chip reserved external LO input pin ( but API does not support the external Lo function at this stage), HJX-ADRV9026-SDR also reserves the hardware circuit of external LO. If in the future the API of ADI can support the function of external LO, the user can develop this part of function by himself.

  HJX-ADRV9026-SDR has a wide range of I / O functions and can use various high-speed I / O, including QSFP, TF card, USB2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, power switch, Mini USB downloader and debug port. A 40G QSFP interface was reserved on the hardware board for the customer to further develop high-speed transmission interface for data transportation in the future. Besides, 36 channel- GPIO pins are introduced from HD Bank of FPGA for communication with external modules. Xilinx FPGA Downloader is also integrated, which can easily realize FPGA program download and serial port communication.

  Meanwhile, HJX-ADRV9026-SDR is compatible with ADRV9029 in hardware design. If change the ADRV9026 to ADRV9029, then we can realize DPD function by just opening the related API on software, and can greatly improve the linearity and efficiency of the power amplifier.

  HJX-ADRV9026-SDR’s circuit design idea and programming logic makes it easy for customers to evaluate and design. Then it is integrated into the customized carrier seamlessly for further prototype design and shortening the time to market of the final product.
