Product Details

The ADF4157 is a 6 GHz fractional-N frequency synthesizer with a 25-bit fixed modulus, allowing subhertz frequency resolution at 6 GHz. It consists of a low noise digital phase frequency detector (PFD), a precision charge pump, and a programmable reference divider. There is a Σ-Δ based fractional interpolator to allow programmable fractional-N division. The INT and FRAC values define an overall N divider, N = INT + (FRAC/225). The ADF4157 features cycle slip reduction circuitry, which leads to faster lock times without the need for modifications to the loop filter.

Control of all on-chip registers is via a simple 3-wire interface. The device operates with a power supply ranging from 2.7 V to 3.3 V and can be powered down when not in use.

Applications

  • Satellite communications terminals, radar equipment
  • Instrumentation equipment
  • Personal mobile radio (PMR)
  • Base stations for mobile radio
  • Wireless handsets

Tools & Simulations

Design Tools

ADIsimPLL™

ADIsimPLL enables the rapid and reliable evaluation of new high performance PLL products from ADI. It is the most comprehensive PLL Synthesizer design and simulation tool available today. Simulations performed include all key non-linear effects that are significant in affecting PLL performance. ADIsimPLL removes at least one iteration from the design process, thereby speeding the design- to-market.

ADIsimRF

ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
