Features and Benefits
- Self contained board, including the ADF5902 24 GHz VCO PGA, with integrated 2-channel PA output and fractional-N frequency synthesizer with ramp generation
- Windows-based software allows control of the ADF5902 functions from a PC
- Externally powered by a 5 V power supply
The EV-ADF5902SD1Z evaluation board allows the user to evaluate the performance of the ADF5902 24 GHz voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) programmable gain amplifier (PGA) with a 2-channel PA output and ramping phase-locked loop (PLL). Figure 1 shows the EV-ADF5902SD1Z evaluation board, which contains the ADF5902, three high frequency K type subminiature version A (SMA) connectors for the local oscillator (LO) output, two transceiver (TX) outputs, banana connectors for the power supply, and a connector for the serial interface.
The EV-ADF5902SD1Z evaluation board requires an EVAL-SDP-CS1Z system demonstration platform serial (SDP-S) controller board, which the kit does not include. The EVAL-SDP-CS1Z SDP S allows software programming of the ADF5902 device.
The Windows®-based PLL Software provides easy programming of the synthesizer.
