Wireless Mic Circuit Downsizing

 

Receiver and Transmitter Architecture for Analog / Digital system

Technical Description

A wireless microphone system consists of a microphone-side transmitter and a receiver that receives the signal. It is the same configuration as the simultaneous interpretation system and the wireless guide system in factories or tourist areas. There are an analog type and a digital type.

About AK1562/AK1563/AK1574​

The AK1562 is a receiving LSI for this wireless microphone system and can be used for both analog and digital system of 470MHz to 960MHz. It contains an LNA, demodulator, fractional-N PLL frequency synthesizer and on-chip VCO.​

The AK1563 is a transmitter LSI used on the microphone side and can be used for the digital system of 470MHz to 960MHz. It contains a 12-bit DAC, quadrature modulator, variable driver amplifier, fractional-N PLL frequency synthesizer and on-chip VCO.​

The AK1574 can be used for the analog transmitter. It contains a 12-bit ADC, fractional-N PLL frequency synthesizer and on-chip VCO.​
