Product Details

The EVAL-ADF4158EB1Z evaluates the performance of the ADF4158 frequency synthesizer for phase locked loops (PLL). The board contains the ADF4158 synthesizer, a PC connector, SMA connectors for the power supplies, and an RF output. There is also a low pass loop filter (20 kHz) and a VCO (Z Communications, Inc., VCO940ME03 5.8 GHz) on board. The evaluation board is set up for a 10 MHz PFD comparison frequency. An on-board TCXO provides the 10 MHz reference frequency. A USB cable is included with the board to connect to a PC USB port. 


The package also contains Windows® software (XP, Vista, and 7 compatible) to allow easy programming of the synthesizer.
