Product Details

The EVAL-ADMV4640Z evaluation board incorporates the ADMV4640, low dropout (LDO) regulators, and the EVAL-SDPCS1Z (SDP-S) controller board to allow simplified, efficient evaluation of the ADMV4640. The SDP-S controller board allows the configuration of the ADMV4640 register map through the Analysis, Control, Evaluation (ACE) software. The LDO regulators allow the EVAL-ADMV4640Z to be powered by a 5 V single supply.

The ADMV4640 is a microwave downconverter optimized for various satellite communication (SATCOM) user terminals operating in the 10.7 GHz to 12.7 GHz frequency range.

The ADMV4640 downconverter comes in a compact, thermally enhanced, 6 mm × 6 mm, 40-lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP). The ADMV4640 operates over the −40°C to +85°C case temperature range.

For full details on the ADMV4640, see the ADMV4640 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the EVAL-ADMV4640Z.
