Features and Benefits
- Full featured evaluation board for the or ADL6316
- SPI control via SDP-S board
- 5.0 V single-supply operation
The ADL6316 transmit variable gain amplifier (TxVGA) provides an interface for radio frequency (RF) digital-to-analog converters (DACs), transceivers, and systems on a chip (SoC) to power amplifiers (PAs). Integrated balun and hybrid couplers allow high performance RF capability over a frequency range of 0.5 GHz to 1.0 GHz.
To optimize performance vs. power level, the ADL6316 includes a voltage variable attenuator (VVA), high linearity amplifiers, and a digital step attenuator (DSA). The devices integrated into the ADL6316 are programmable via a 4-wire serial port interface (SPI).
This user guide describes the evaluation board and software for the ADL6316. For full details, see the ADL6316 data sheet, which must be consulted when using the evaluation board. The ADL6316-EVALZ evaluation board is fabricated with FR-370HR, Rogers 4350B in four layers.
