The AD607 provides most of the active circuitry required to realize a complete low power, single-conversion superheterodyne receiver, or most of a double-conversion receiver, at input frequencies up to 500 MHz, and with an IF of from 400 kHz to 12 MHz. The internal I/Q demodulators, and their associated phase locked-loop, which can provide carrier recovery from the IF, support a wide variety of modulation modes, including nPSK, n-QAM, and AM. A single positive supply voltage of 3 V is required (2.7 V minimum, 5.5 V maximum) at a typical supply current of 8.5 mA at midgain. In the following discussion, VP will be used to denote the power supply voltage, which will be assumed to be 3 V.

Figure 33 shows the main sections of the AD607. It consists of a variable-gain UHF mixer and linear four-stage IF strip, which together provide a voltage controlled gain range of more than 90 dB; followed by dual demodulators, each comprising a multiplier followed by a 2-pole, 2 MHz low-pass filter; and driven by a phase-locked loop providing the inphase and quadrature clocks. An internal AGC detector is included, and the temperature stable gain control system provides an accurate RSSI capability. A biasing system with CMOS compatible power-down completes the AD607.

The UHF mixer is an improved Gilbert cell design, and can operate from low frequencies (it is internally dcoupled) up to an RF input of 500 MHz. The dynamic range at the input of the mixer is determined, at the upper end, by the maximum input signal level of ± 56 mV between RFHI and RFLO up to which the mixer remains linear, and, at the lower end, by the noise level. It is customary to define the linearity of a mixer in terms of the 1 dB gain-compression point and third-order intercept, which for the AD607 are –15 dBm and –8 dBm, respectively, in a 50 Ω system.
