Analog Devices ADF5902 24GHz Radar Transmitter is a Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) with an on-chip, 24GHz voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO). The VCO features a fractional N-frequency synthesizer with waveform generation capability, a programmable grid array (PGA), and dual transmitter channels for radar systems. The on-chip VCO generates the 24GHz signal for the two transmitter channels and the local oscillator (LO) output. Each transmitter channel contains a power control circuit. There is also an on-chip temperature sensor.
Control of all the on-chip registers is through a simple, 4-wire serial peripheral interface (SPI).
The ADF5902 is offered in a compact, 32-lead, 5mm × 5mm LFCSP package.
