Overview

Features and Benefits

  • Allows control of PLL evaluation boards via USB
  • Compatible with Windows XP & Vista
  • Powered directly from USB port

Product Details

The EVAL-ADF4XXX is a USB to parallel port adaptor board which allows control of older PLL evaluation boards using a standard USB port.

The evaluation board kit comes with a USB cable and the adaptor PCB board. The board contains a USB microcontroller which converts the USB data to lower speed serial data which can be used to control the PLL boards directly. The board also has a USB connector and 25-pin D-connector. The parallel port cable that ships with the older PLL evaluation boards should be connected to the 25-pin D-connector. The USB port should be connected to your pc using the USB cable provided. USB drivers for the board are provided on the standard PLL evaluation board CD.

Please install the ADI evaluation board software before plugging in the USB board.

Design Tools

ADIsimPLL™

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

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.

Design Resources

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.
