Features and Benefits

  • Fully featured evaluation board for the ADMV4801
  • On-board SDP-S connector for SPI control
  • 5 V operation through LDO regulators
  • ACE software interface for SPI control

Product Details

The ADMV4801-EVALZ evaluation board incorporates the ADMV4801 silicon germanium (SiGe), 24 GHz to 29.5 GHz, 5G beamformer with low dropout (LDO) regulators, level shifters, and an EVAL-SDP-CS1Z (SDP-S) controller board to allow the simplified and efficient evaluation of the ADMV4801. The RF IC is highly integrated and contains 16 independent transmitter and receiver channels. The chip can be programmed using a 4‑wire serial port interface (SPI). The SDP-S controller allows the user to interface with the ADMV4801 SPI through the Analog Devices, Inc., Analysis, Control Evaluation (ACE) software. The level shifters translate the 1.8 V chip logic level to the 3.3 V SDP-S logic level. The LDO regulators allow the ADMV4801 to be powered on by a single supply.

For full details on the ADMV4801, see the ADMV4801 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using the ADMV4801-EVALZ.
