Vector signal transceiver (VST)

Block diagram


High-speed digitizers, ultra-low jitter programmable clocking system, high-frequency signal chain and low-noise power enable wide bandwidth and higher dynamic range systems needed for vector signal transceiver (VST) designs. Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you design modern high-performance VSTs.

Design requirements

    Next-generation VST designs often require:

  • Direct RF sampling ADCs to achieve high bandwidth and dynamic range.
  • RF DACs that enable IQ modulation with high bandwidth and dynamic range.
  • Ultra-low phase noise RF PLL synthesizer generates JESD204B-compliant clocks.
  • Low-noise power to achieve high sensitivity and dynamic range.
