The EV-ADF4153ASD1Z is an evaluation kit designed to allow the user to evaluate the performance of the ADF4153A frequency synthesizer for phase locked loops (PLLs). The ADF4153A implements local oscillators in the upconversion and downconversion sections of wireless receivers and transmitters. The evaluation board contains the ADF4153A synthesizer, an edge mounted SMA connector for the RF output signal, power supply connectors, a temperature compensated reference oscillator (TCXO) of 25MHz frequency and an SDP connector. There is also a loop filter (50KHz) and a VCO (Mini Circuits ROS-1800+) on board. This evaluation board requires an SDP controller board for connection to the PC. The SDP controller board connects to the PC via USB 2.0. The evaluation board will connect to the SDP controller board. The evaluation board cannot be connected directly to the PC. The evaluation software running on the PC will communicate through the SDP board to the evaluation board.
