- ACE software interface for SPI control
TThe ADMV1013-EVALZ evaluation board incorporates the ADMV1013 with a microcontroller, low dropout (LDO) regulators, and the AD5601 nanoDAC® to allow the quick and easy evaluation of the ADMV1013. The microcontroller allows the user to configure the ADMV1013 register map through the Analysis, Control, Evaluation (ACE) software. The LDO regulators allow the ADMV1013 to be powered on by a single supply, and offer power supply ripple rejection. The AD5601 nanoDAC allows the user to attenuate the radio frequency (RF) power from the mixer of the ADMV1013 without using an external power supply.
The ADMV1013 is a silicon germanium (SiGe) design, wideband, microwave upconverter optimized for point to point microwave radio designs operating in a frequency range of 24 GHz to 44 GHz.
The ADMV1013 comes in a compact, thermally enhanced, 6 mm × 6 mm LGA package, and operates over a temperature range of −40°C to +85°C. For full details on the ADMV1013, see the ADMV1013 data sheet. Consult the data sheet in conjunction with this user guide when using the ADMV1013-EVALZ evaluation board.
