GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The AD9867 is a mixed-signal front-end (MxFE) IC for
transceiver applications requiring Tx and Rx path functionality
with data rates up to 75 MSPS. Its flexible digital interface,
power-saving modes, and high Tx-to-Rx isolation make the
part well suited for half-duplex and full-duplex applications.
The digital interface is extremely flexible allowing simple
interfaces to digital back ends. Power-saving modes can reduce
power consumption of individual functional blocks or can
power down unused blocks in half-duplex applications. A serial
port interface (SPI®) allows software programming of the
various functional blocks. An on-chip PLL clock multiplier and
synthesizer provide all the required internal clocks, as well as
two external clocks from a single crystal or clock source.
The receive path consists of a programmable amplifier
(RxPGA), a tunable low-pass filter (LPF), and a 10-bit analogto-digital converter (ADC). The low noise RxPGA has a
programmable gain range of −12 dB to +48 dB in 1 dB steps.
Its input referred noise is less than 3.6 nV/√Hz for gain settings
beyond 36 dB. An optional attenuator provides an additional
6 dB (or more) of attenuation (when combined with external
series resistors). The receive path LPF cutoff frequency can
either be set over a 22 MHz to 38 MHz range or simply
bypassed. The 10-bit ADC achieves excellent dynamic
performance over a 5 MSPS to 75 MSPS span. Both the RxPGA
and the ADC offer scalable power consumption allowing
power/performance optimization.
The Tx signal path consists of a bypassable 2×/4× low-pass
interpolation filter and a 10-bit, 250 MSPS TxDAC. The
transmit path signal bandwidth can be as high as 33.6 MHz at
an input data rate of 75 MSPS. The TxDAC provides differential
current outputs that can be steered directly to a differential or
single-ended external load. Tx power can be digitally controlled
over a 7.5 dB range in 0.5 dB steps.
The AD9867 provides a highly integrated solution for
broadband modems. It is available in a space-saving, 64-lead
LFCSP and is specified over the commercial (−40°C to +85°C)
temperature range.
