400 MHz TO 4000 MHz ½ Watt RF Driver Amplifier
The ADL5324 also delivers excellent ACPR vs. output power and bias voltage. The driver can deliver greater than 17 dBm of output power at 2140 MHz, while achieving an ACPR of −55 dBc at 5 V. If the bias is reduced to 3.3 V, the −55 dBc ACPR output power only minimally reduces to 15 dBm.

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
ADL5324-EVALZ is a fully populated, 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation, it requires a single 5 V/500 mA supply. The 5 V supply should be connected to the test loops labeled VSUP and GND. The RF input is applied to the SMA connector labeled RFIN. The RF output is available at the SMA connector labeled RFOUT. To facilitate tuning for different frequencies the RF input and RF output traces are free of solder mask and have index markings for ease of component placement. The evaluation board ships with tuning components that are optimized for operation from 2110 MHz to 2170 MHz. The ADL5324 datasheet provides recommended tuning components for other frequencies.
The AD-PZSDR2400TDD-EB is a 2.4GHz TDD analog module designed to work with the AD9361, a high performance, highly integrated RF transceiver intended for use in RF applications, such as 3G and 4G base station and test equipment applications, and software defined radios. The AD-PZSDR2400TDD-EB is affectionately dubbed the first 'RF personality card'. It plugs into the AES-PZSDRCC-FMC-G carrier card. 35mm U.FL coaxial cables connect the card to the PicoZed SDR Z7035/AD9361 SOM providing access to the transmit and receive inputs of the AD9361. Information on the card, how to use it, the design package that surrounds it, and the software which can make it work, can be found on the wiki page.
The purpose of the AD-PZSDR2400TDD-EB is to provide the user with a path to condition the transmit or receive signals of the AD9361. Selection of TX or RX path is achieved by the 200MHz to 2.7GHz SPDT switch HMC546 controlled by the FPGA and accompanying software. The transmit path consists of a 2.4GHz filter, half watt driver amplifier ADL5324 and 2 watt power amplifier HMC921. The receive path consists of the same 2.4GHz filter as well as a low loss LNA HMC669.
