The user guide describes the EVAL-ADGM1001SDZ evaluation board for the ADGM1001, a dual-chip, RF switching solution containing a single-pole, two-throw (SPDT), microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switch, and a control chip copackaged in a compact, 5.00 mm × 4.00 mm × 0.90 mm, LGA package.
The SPDT switch uses Analog Devices, Inc., MEMS switch technology, providing optimum performance in terms of bandwidth, power handling capability, and linearity for RF applications. The control chip generates the high voltage signals needed for the MEMS switch and allows the user to control its operation through a simple and flexible complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-/low voltage transistor-transistor logic (LVTTL)-compliant parallel interface as well as via a serial peripheral interface (SPI). It is possible to daisy-chain multiple ADGM1001 devices together to enable the configuration of multiple devices with a minimal number of digital lines.
For SPI, the EVAL-ADGM1001SDZ connects to the USB port of a PC via the SDP board. The EVAL-SDP-CB1Z board (SDP-B controller board) is available to order at via the Analog Devices website at www.analog.com/SDP-B.
The EVAL-ADGM1001SDZ comes fitted with connectors for RF and control signals as well as links to control the operation of the switch and evaluate its performance.
For full details on the ADGM1001, see the ADGM1001 data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using the EVAL-ADGM1001SDZ evaluation board.
