- Self contained evaluation board containing the ADF5709 wideband, MMIC VCO
- Externally powered by a single 5 V supply
The EV-ADF5709 evaluates the performance of the ADF5709 wideband, voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). Figure 1, found in the user guide, shows a photograph of the EV-ADF5709. The EV-ADF5709 contains the ADF5709, external supply headers, supply decoupling capacitors, a VTUNE Subminiature Version A (SMA) connector, and a 2.92 mm, RF output K connector. No software interface is required to control the ADF5709 while the device is operating as a standalone VCO in open-loop mode.
For full details on the ADF5709, see the ADF5709 data sheet, which must be consulted in conjunction with the user guide when using the EV-ADF5709.
