Features and Benefits
- Fully featured evaluation board for the ADMV8913
- On-board SDP-S connector for the SPI
- Evaluation using on-board LDO regulators powered by the USB ACE software interface for SPI control
The ADMV8913-EVALZ is available for evaluating the ADMV8913 digitally tunable, high-pass filter (HPF) and low-pass filter (LPF). The ADMV8913-EVALZ incorporates the ADMV8913 chip, as well as a negative voltage generator, low dropout (LDO) regulators, and an interface to the EVAL-SDP-CS1Z (SDP-S) system demonstration platform (SDP) to allow simple and efficient evaluation. The negative voltage generator and LDO regulators allow the ADMV8913 to be powered by either the 5 V USB supply voltage from the PC via the SDP-S or by using two external power supplies.
The ADMV8913 is a fully monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) that features a digitally selectable frequency of operation. The chip has an integrated HPF followed by an integrated LPF that allows a pass-band response within the X band frequency range. The chip can be programmed using either the parallel logic interface or a 4-wire serial port interface (SPI). The SDP-S controller allows the user to interface with the ADMV8913 SPI through the Analog Devices, Inc., Analysis | Control | Evaluation (ACE) software.
For full details on the ADMV8913, see the ADMV8913 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using the ADMV8913-EVALZ.
