Integrated Integer-N Synthesizer and VCO - Output Frequency 1850 to 2170
The ADF4360-2 is a fully integrated integer-N synthesizer and voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO). The ADF4360-2 is designed for a center frequency of 2000 MHz. In addition, a divide-by-2 option is available, whereby the user gets an RF output of between 925 MHz and 1085 MHz.
Control of all the on-chip registers is through a simple 3-wire interface. The device operates with a power supply ranging from 3.0 V to 3.6 V and can be powered down when not in use.

At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
The ADF4360-2EBZ1 evaluation board is designed to allow the user to evaluate the performance of the ADF4360-2 frequency synthesizer consisting of an integrated PLL and VCO. It contains the ADF4360-2BCPZ, a USB connector, and SMA connectors for the RF outputs. Unpopulated SMA footprints are available for the power supplies, the chip enable (CE), and the external reference input. The evaluation board also contains the loop filter to complete the PLL. It can be modified as necessary for the PLL requirements of the user. A USB cable is included with the board to allow software programmability from a PC.
The package also contains a CD with Windows® software to allow quick, user-friendly programming of the synthesizer. The CD contains additional PLL data sheets, technical notes, articles, and ADIsimPLL™ V3.4 (Analog Devices, Inc., PLL simulation software). More information is available at www.analog.com/pll.
