160-MHz Bandwidth Wireless Signal Tester Reference Design

TIDA-00988

Design files

Overview

This reference design implements an IF subsystem for a standard wireless signal tester with an active balun-amplifier (LMH5401), LC bandpass filter, 16-bit ADC (ADC31JB68) and clock cleaner and generator PLL (LMK04828). Measurements using modulated signals demonstrate reception of the signal with high constellation clarity and MER sufficient for testing a wide variety of standard signal types including 802.11ac (Wi-Fi), Bluetooth, Zigbee, and the common cellular standards like UMTS and LTE.

Features
  • Implements an IF Subsystem for Standard Wireless Signal Tester With 160-MHz Bandwidth
  • Support for Most Standard Wireless Signal Data Types

A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
