Description for the AFE7950

The AFE7950 is a high performance, wide bandwidth multi-channel transceiver, integrating four RF sampling transmitter chains, four RF sampling receiver chains and two RF sampling feedback chains (six RF sampling ADCs total). With operation up to 12 GHz, this device enables direct RF sampling in the L, S, C and X-band frequency ranges without the need for additional frequency conversions stages. This improvement in density and flexibility enables high-channel-count, multi-mission systems.

The TX signal paths support interpolation and digital up conversion options that deliver up to 1200 MHz of signal bandwidth for four TX or 2400 MHz for two TX. The output of the DUCs drives a 12-GSPS DAC (digital to analog converter) with a mixed mode output option to enhance 2nd Nyquist operation. The DAC output includes a variable gain amplifier (TX DSA) with 40-dB range and 1-dB analog and 0.125-dB digital steps.
