Product Details

The evaluation board incorporates the ADMV4630, low dropout (LDO) regulators, and the EVAL-SDP-CS1Z (SDP-S) controller board to allow simplified, efficient evaluation of the ADMV4630. The SDP-S controller board allows the configuration of the ADMV4630 register map through the Analysis, Control, Evaluation (ACE) software. The LDO regulators allow the EVAL-ADMV4630Z to be powered by a 5 V single supply.

The ADMV4630 is a Ku-band upconverter optimized for various satellite communication (SATCOM) user terminals operating in the 14.0 GHz to 14.5 GHz frequency range. The ADMV4630 upconverter comes in a compact, thermally enhanced, 6 mm × 6 mm, 40-lead frame chip scale package (LFCSP). The ADMV4630 operates over the −40°C to +85°C case temperature range.

For full details on the ADMV4630, see the ADMV4630 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the EVAL-ADMV4630Z.
