The AD6432 IF IC provides the complete transmit and receive IF signal processing, including I/Q modulation and demodulation, necessary to implement a digital wireless transceiver such as a GSM handset. The AD6432 may also be used for other wireless TDMA standards using I/Q modulation. The AD6432's receive signal path is based on the proven architecture of the AD607 and the AD6459. It consists of a mixer, gain-controlled amplifiers, integrated roofing filter and I/Q demodulators based on a PLL. The low noise, high-intercept variable-gain mixer is a doubly-balanced Gilbert-cell type. It has a nominal 13 dBm input-referred 1 dB compression point and a 0 dBm input-referred third-order intercept.
