The ADF4150 allows implementation of fractional-N or integer-N phase-locked loop (PLL) frequency synthesizers if used with an external voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), loop filter, and external reference frequency.
The ADF4150 is for use with external VCO parts and is software compatible with the ADF4350. The VCO frequency can be divided by 1/2/4/8/16 to allow the user to generate RF output frequencies as low as 31.25 MHz. For applications that require isolation the RF output stage can be muted. The mute function is both pin and software controllable.
Control of all the on-chip registers is through a simple 3-wire interface. The device operates with a power supply ranging from 3.0 V to 3.6 V and can be powered down when not in use.
The ADF4150 is available in a 4 mm × 4 mm package.

Tools & Simulations
ADIsimPLL enables the rapid and reliable evaluation of new high performance PLL products from ADI. It is the most comprehensive PLL Synthesizer design and simulation tool available today. Simulations performed include all key non-linear effects that are significant in affecting PLL performance. ADIsimPLL removes at least one iteration from the design process, thereby speeding the design- to-market.
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
