Product DetailsThe ADF4360-9 is an integrated integer-N synthesizer and voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). The ADF4360-9 center frequency is set by external inductors. This allows a VCO frequency range of between 65 MHz and 400 MHz.
An additional divider stage allows division of the VCO signal. The CMOS level output is equivalent to the VCO signal divided by integer value between 2 and 31. This divided signal can be further divided by two if desired.
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.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The EV-ADF4360-9EB1Z board is designed to allow the user to evaluate the performance of the ADF4360-9 frequency synthesizer consisting of an integrated PLL and VCO. It contains the ADF4360-9BCPZ, a USB connector, and SMA connectors for the RF outputs. Unpopulated SMA footprints are available for the power supplies, lock detect, and the external reference input. The evaluation board also contains the loop filter to complete the PLL. It can be modified as necessary for the user’s PLL requirements. A USB cable is included with the board to allow software programmability.
The package also contains a CD with Windows® software to allow quick, user-friendly programming of the synthesizer. The CD contains numerous other PLL data sheets, technical notes, articles, and ADIsimPLL™ V3.4, Analog Devices, Inc., PLL simulation software. More information is available at www.analog.com/pll.

Tools & Simulations
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.
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.
