Analog Devices Extends Portfolio of Wireless Transceiver Systems; New Single-Chip RFIC Builds on Existing Suite of Transceiver Systems Designed to Enable Affordable Wireless Connectivity.

NORWOOD, Mass. -- Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today announced it has extended its portfolio of leading RF ICs with the ADF7020-1 transceiver. Designed to address the SRD (short range device) wireless connectivity applications in home and building automation, wireless video and audio, AMR (Automatic Wireless Metering) and security applications, the ADF7020-1 is a single-chip, transceiver solution for the 135 to 650MHz frequency range with good co-channel and adjacent channel rejection.

This new RF IC will be displayed in Analog Devices' booth #408B/410A at European Microwave Week, October 3-7, 2005 in Paris, France.

"The introduction of the ADF7020-1 serves as a proof point to our strategy of offering customers innovative solutions designed to increase availability of low-cost wireless links," said Christian Kermarrec, vice president, RF and wireless systems, Analog Devices, Inc. "This device joins a strong portfolio of RF ICs, which when coupled with our suite of development tools, ease the design process for our customers and enable products to reach market faster."

About the ADF7020-1

The ADF7020-1 is a low-power, highly integrated UHF/VHF transceiver IC with a range of 135 MHz to 650 MHz operating frequency, which includes the popular 315 and 433 MHz bands. The transceiver supports data rates of 0.15 to 200 kbits/s FSK (frequency shift keying) and 0.15 to 64 kbits/s ASK (amplitude shift keying). The device operates on a +2.3 V to +3.6 V power supply with programmable output power from -16 dBm to +13 dBm in 0.3 dBm steps. Its receiver sensitivity is -119 dBm at 1 kbits/s FSK, -112 dBm at 9.6 kbits/s FSK, and -106.5 dBm at 9.6 kbits/s ASK. Current consumption is 18 mA in receive mode and 27 mA in transmit mode (+10 dBm output). Other features include on-chip VCO (voltage controlled oscillator), fractional-N PLL, on-chip 7-bit analog-to-digital converter, digital received signal strength indication (RSSI) and an integrated T/R switch. Its leakage current is < 1 microamp in power down mode.

When used in conjunction with the ADIismLINK Protocol software provided for free with the evaluations boards, a user can quickly design and optimize a new radio link and improve time to market.
