10-bit, 7.5Msps, Ultra-Low-Power Analog Front-End

Product Details

The MAX19705 is an ultra-low-power, mixed-signal analog front-end (AFE) designed for power-sensitive communication equipment. Optimized for high dynamic performance at ultra-low power, the device integrates a dual 10-bit, 7.5Msps receive (Rx) ADC; dual 10-bit, 7.5Msps transmit (Tx) DAC; three fast-settling 12-bit aux-DAC channels for ancillary RF front-end control; and a 10-bit, 333ksps housekeeping aux-ADC. The typical operating power in Tx-Rx FAST mode is 28.2mW at a 7.5MHz clock frequency.

The Rx ADCs feature 55.1dB SNR and 73.4dBc SFDR at a 1.875MHz input frequency with a 7.5MHz clock frequency. The analog I/Q input amplifiers are fully differential and accept 1.024VP-P full-scale signals. Typical I/Q channel matching is ±0.01° phase and ±0.02dB gain.

The Tx DACs feature 77.2dBc SFDR at fOUT = 620kHz and fCLK = 7.5MHz. The analog I/Q full-scale output voltage is ±400mV differential. The Tx DAC commonmode DC level is programmable from 0.9V to 1.35V. The I/Q channel offset is adjustable. The typical I/Q channel matching is ±0.03dB gain and ±0.08° phase.

The Rx ADC and Tx DAC share a single, 10-bit parallel, high-speed digital bus allowing half-duplex operation for time-division duplex (TDD) applications. A 3-wire serial interface controls power-management modes, the aux-DAC channels, and the aux-ADC channels.

The MAX19705 operates on a single +2.7V to +3.3V analog supply and +1.8V to +3.3V digital I/O supply. The MAX19705 is specified for the extended (-40°C to +85°C) temperature range and is available in a 48-pin, thin QFN package. See a parametric table of the complete family of pin-compatible AFEs.

    Description

    The MAX19705–MAX19708 evaluation systems (EV systems) consist of a MAX19705–MAX19708 evaluation kits (EV kits), a companion Maxim command module (CMOD232 or CMODUSB) interface board, and software. Order the complete EV system (see the Ordering Information) for comprehensive evaluation of the MAX19705–MAX19708 using a personal computer. Order the EV kit if the command module has already been purchased with a previous Maxim EV system, or for custom use in other microcontroller-based (µC) systems.

    The MAX19705–MAX19708 EV kits are fully assembled and tested circuit boards that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX19705–MAX19708 analog front-ends (AFEs). The MAX19705–MAX19708 integrate a dual-receive analog-to-digital converter (Rx ADC), a dual-transmit digital-to-analog converter (Tx DAC), a 1.024V internal voltage reference, three low-speed serial DACs, and one low-speed serial ADC. The EV kit boards accept AC- or DC-coupled, differential or single-ended analog inputs for the Rx ADC and include circuitry that converts the Tx DAC differential output signals to single-ended analog outputs. The EV kits include circuitry that generates a clock signal from an AC sine-wave input signal. The EV kits operate from a +3.0V analog power supply, a +1.8V digital power supply, a +3.0V clock power supply, and ±5V bipolar power supplies.

    The Maxim command module interface board (CMOD232 or CMODUSB) allows a PC to use its serial or USB port to emulate an SPI 3-wire interface. Windows® 98/2000/XP-compatible software, which can be downloaded from www.maximintegrated.com, provides a user-friendly interface to exercise the features of the MAX19705–MAX19708. The program is menu driven and offers a graphical user interface (GUI) with control buttons and a status display.
