Product Details

The EV-ADF5356SD1Z evaluates the performance of the ADF5356 frequency synthesizer with integrated VCO for phase-locked loops (PLLs). The evaluation board contains the ADF5356 synthesizer with integrated VCO, a differential 122.88 MHz reference TCXO, a loop filter, a USB interface, power supply connectors, and subminiature Version A (SMA) connectors. A USB cable is included to connect the board to a PC USB port.

For easy programming of the synthesizer, download the Windows®-based software from www.analog.com/ADF5356.

This board requires an SDP-S controller board that is not supplied with the kit. The SDP-S controller board allows software programming of the ADF5356 device.

For full details on the ADF5356, see the ADF5356 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with UG-1087 when using this evaluation board.
