Application notes for Analog Devices, Inc. analog-to-digital data converter models AD9445
This application note helps explain the use of Anarens multilayer BD0205F5050A00 balun, in conjunction with either the Analog Devices AD9445 or AD9446 14bit / 16bit high speed data converters, This implementation will contribute to both a higher Signal to Noise ratio and an improvement in SFDR. Anarens baluns offer superior part to part consistency through their proven fabrication technology based on multilayer organic substrates. This differentiation allows faultless operation and performance repeatability not available in a wire-wound equivalent. A reduced overall component count also comes through a single Anaren balun replacing multiple wire-wounds parts while maintain performance.
Application notes for Analog Devices, Inc. analog-to-digital data converter model AD9640
This application note explains the use of Anaren?s multilayer balun (BD0205F5050AHF) in conjunction with Analog Devices AD9640 integrated dual 14-bit, 80/105/125/150 MSPS analog to digital converter. The AD9640 ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) operates up to a 125 MSPS conversion rate and is optimized for use in diversity radio systems, smart antennas, multimode digital receivers, and software radio systems. This application note will show that use of Anarens BD0205F5050A00 balun will result in an improvement in SFDR (Spurious Free Dynamic Range) and gain flatness as compared to a traditional wirewound balun implementation. The BD0205F5050A00 is a new Anaren product that has been specifically designed for use in an ADC front end circuit.
Application note for Texas Instruments CC1100/CC1101 Transceiver
The tradeoff between repeatability, cost and time to market plus the drive for miniaturization and integration has intensified over recent years. Designers find themselves forced to make compromises in management of the bill of materials whilst delivering the repeatability and performance metrics their marketing and management teams demand. The expectation is that the design must be robust enough to achieve good yields, but also have the lowest possible bill of materials content. Cost not only depends on the number and types of parts, but also on the size of the PCB and enclosure. At Anaren the focus is always to develop solutions that address these design and manufacturing challenges, through the development of 100% RF tested components that increase yields and decrease product size and time to market. This application note demonstrates these objectives clearly as we present a small and simple single surface mounted balun solution optimized for use with Texas Instruments CC1101 transceiver.
Application note for Nordic Semiconductor nRF24L01 and nRF24L01+ transceiver designs
With the drive for miniaturization and integration intensifying in recent years, the challenges concerning the trade offs between small form-factors, repeatability, cost and time to market have continued to drive innovation. More recently we have seen an adoption of wireless technologies in non-traditional applications where the OEM has limited experience in Wireless and RF technology especially in high volume applications. These designs must be optimized to deliver consistent performance with the lowest possible bill of material cost. The total cost not only depends on the number and the types of components in the BOM, but also on the size of the PCB and mechanical enclosure. Anaren has been focused on developing products and solutions that address the trade offs between: minimum real estate whilst maintaining repeatability, cost and time to market. This objective is achieved through the integration of 100% RF tested components. The following application note demonstrates these objectives clearly as we present a small and simple balun solution optimized for use with Nordic Semiconductors nRF24L01 and nRF24L01+ chip. The nRF24L01 is a true single-chip 2.4 GHz Proprietary Ultra Low Power compliant RF transceiver chip, designed for low-power wireless applications. The reference design presented in this application note uses only two components for the impedance matching: a 1mm2 Anaren multilayer balun and an inductor for final impedance matching. This implementation results in, a design minimizing PCB real-estate and performs according to the specifications stated in the Nordic Semiconductor nRF24L01 and nRF24L01+ data sheets.
Anaren 0404 (BD2425N50ATI) balun optimized for Texas Instruments CC2500 Transceiver
Over the last few years, the drive for miniaturization and integration has intensified the challenges concerning the trade off between repeatability, cost and time to market. The design must be robust enough to achieve good yields, but also have the lowest possible bill of material cost. The total cost not only depends on the number and types of parts and their associated cost, but also on the size of the PCB and enclosure. At Anaren the focus is on developing products that address these trade-offs. Integrating 100% RF tested components increase yield and decreases size and time to market. The following application note demonstrates these objectives clearly as we present a small and simple balun solution optimized for use with Texas Instruments CC2500 transceiver. The CC2500 is a true single-chip 2.4 GHz ISM and SRD compliant RF transceiver, designed for low-power wireless applications. The same balun solution can also be used with CC2510, CC2511 and CC2550 since these parts uses the same RF front end as CC2500. The balun solution presented in this application note uses only three components: a 1mm square Anaren multilayer balun, a DC blocking capacitor and an inductor for impedance matching. This results in a solution that minimizes space and performs according to the specifications in the CC2500 data sheet.
