Evaluation Kits (1)
ADL5386-EVALZ is 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation, it requires a 5 V/300 mA power supply and the 5 V power supply should be connected to the clip leads labeled VPOS and GND. The LO and baseband inputs (which should be biased at 0.5 V) are applied to edge-mounted SMA-type RF connectors (labeled LO, IP, IN, QP, and QN). The IQ modulator output can be configured to drive the ADL5386's VVA block. Alternatively, the IQ modulator's output can be accessed directly at the SMA connector labeled VMOD. An AGC mode can be implemented using the on-board log detector/controller. DC voltage proportional to die temperature is available at the clip leads labeled TEMP.
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.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
