Enhanced design tool adds support for 29 new RF ICs and data converters
ADIsimRF Version 1.6 adds support for 29 new RF ICs and data converters as well as functional enhancements. The ADIsimRF design tool provides calculations for the most important parameters within an RF signal chain, including cascaded gain, noise figure, IP3, P1dB, and total power consumption. The ADIsimRF tool also contains embedded data from many of ADI’s RF ICs and data converters, which designers can easily access using pull-down menus. Device tables assist in component selection.
Support for ADI’s newest high-performance RF ICs and data converters include additional input fields and system level calculations such as input Rx sensitivity; integrated output noise floor in dBm and input field for minimum SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) for demodulation.
Using a combination of design skills, systems understanding and process technologies, Analog Devices RF ICs and world-leading data converters cover the entire RF signal chain and include industry-leading high-performance discrete RF function blocks as well as 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.
