The RF transceiver is built on the Digital RF Processor (DRP) technology. The ADPLL-based transmitter uses a polar architecture with all-digital PM-FM and AM paths. The receiver uses a discrete-time architecture in which the RF signal is directly sampled and processed using analog and DSP techniques. A 26 MHz digitally controlled crystal oscillator (DCXO) generates frequency reference (FREF) and has a means of high-frequency dithering to minimize the effects of coupling from digitally controlled PA driver (DPA) to DCXO by de-sensitizing its slicing buffer.
