Four-Channel Programmable Digital Downconverter Evaluation Board


The ISL5216EVAL1 evaluation board is used to evaluate the ISL5216 four-channel programmable digital downconverter.

The ISL5216 quad programmable digital downconverter (QPDC) is designed for high dynamic range applications such as cellular basestations where multiple channel processing is required in a small physical space. The QPDC combines into a single package a set of four channels which include: digital mixers, a quadrature carrier NCO, digital filters, a resampling filter, a Cartesian-to-polar coordinate converter and an AGC loop.
