ADF5509 Evaluation Board

Product Detail

There are 6 distinct evaluation boards, each of which is designed to allow the user to evaluate the performance of each member of the ADF55xx family of microwave GaAs VCOs. Each board contains the particular ADF55xx VCO, SMA connectors for the RF outputs, SMA connector for VTUNE and banana connectors for power supply. There is an ADP7104 low noise regulator providing the power supply for the ADF55xx. To phase lock the VCO, each board can be connected up to an external frequency synthesizer PLL board such as the integer-N, EV-ADF4108EB2Z, or fractional-N, EV-ADF4159EB2Z.
