Product Details

The ADRF6821-EVALZ evaluates the performance of the ADRF6821. The evaluation board contains the ADRF6821, a connector suited for the SDP-S controller board, power supply connectors, regulators, and subminiature Version A (SMA) connectors. The ADRF6821-EVALZ requires an SDP-S controller board to program the ADRF6821. The ADRF6821-EVALZ is a 4-layer Rogers printed circuit board (PCB).

The ADRF6821 is a high performance, wideband demodulator solution that supports input radio frequencies (RF) ranging from 450 MHz to 2800 MHz. Highly integrated, the device consists of a 2:1 input RF switch; integrated RF balun; quadrature demodulator, integrated phase-locked loop (PLL)/voltage controlled oscillator (VCO); and integrated intermediate frequency (IF) amplifiers and analog-to-digital (ADC) drivers. The device supports input/output bandwidths up to 500 MHz and includes 15 dB of programmable attenuation. The integrated PLL/VCO within the ADRF6821 provides a 2× local oscillator (LO) signal for a range of 900 MHz to 5600 MHz.

The ADRF6821 data sheet provides additional information and should be consulted when using the evaluation board.
