EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
The evaluation board requires the use of an SDP-S motherboard
to program the device. This is not included and must be
purchased separately. The EV-ADF4153SD1Z schematics are
shown in Figure 21, Figure 22, and Figure 23.
POWER SUPPLIES
The board is powered from external banana connectors. The
voltage can vary between 6 V and 12 V. The power supply
circuit provides 3.0 V to VDD on the board (which supplies the
ADF4153 AVDD and DVDD pins) and allows the user to choose
either 3.0 V or 5 V for the ADF4153 VP. The default settings are
3.0 V for the ADF4153 VDD and 5 V for the ADF4153 VP. Note
that VDD should never exceed 3.3 V. This can damage the device.
External power supplies can be used to directly drive the device.
In this case, the user must insert SMA connectors as shown in
Figure 2.
INPUT SIGNALS
Alternatively, this can be sourced from an external generator. In
this case, remove R16 and R14 to disconnect the TCXO from
the supply and from the reference path, insert Connector J11 or
the edge mount connector, J5, and connect the external generator to the connector. A low noise, high slew rate reference
source is best for achieving the stated performance of the
ADF4153.
Digital SPI signals are supplied through the SDP connector, J1.
Using the SDP-S platform is recommended. The SDP-B can
also be used, but Resistor R57 must be removed on the SDP-B
board. Some additional spurious low frequencies may appear if
the SDP-B connector is used.
09157-002
The necessary reference input comes from an on-board temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) of 25 MHz
frequency.
Figure 2. Evaluation Board Silkscreen
OUTPUT SIGNALS
All components necessary for LO generation are inserted on
board. The PLL is made up of the ADF4153 synthesizer, a
passive loop filter, and the VCO. This board is supplied with a
VCO ROS1800+ from Mini-Circuits, which covers a frequency
range from 1700 MHz to 1800 MHz. A low-pass filter of 50 kHz
loop bandwidth is inserted between the charge pump output
and the VCO input. The 2.5 mA charge pump current setting
is used. The VCO output is available at RFOUT through a
standard SMA connector, J2. The MUXOUT signal can be
monitored at Test Point T8 or at SMA Connector J3.

SYSTEM DEMONSTRATION PLATFORM (SDP)
The system demonstration platform (SDP) is a series of controller boards, interposer boards, and daughter boards that can be
used for easy low cost evaluation of Analog Devices, Inc.,
components and reference circuits. It is a reusable platform
whereby a single controller board can be reused in various
daughter board evaluation systems.
Controller boards connect to the PC via USB 2.0 and provide a
range of communication interfaces on a 120-pin connector.
The pinout for this connector is strictly defined. This 120-pin
connector’s receptacle is on all SDP daughter boards, component evaluation boards, and Circuits from the Lab™ reference
circuit boards. There are two controller boards in the platform:
the SDP-B, which is based on the Blackfin® ADSP-BF527, and
the SDP-S, which is a serial interface only controller board.
The SDP-S has a subset of the SDP-B functionality.
Interposer boards route signals between the SDP 120-pin connector and a second connector. When the second connector is
also a 120-pin connector, the interposer can be used for signal
monitoring of the 120-pin connector signals. Alternatively, the
second connector allows SDP platform elements to be integrated
into a second platform, for example, the BeMicro SDK. More
information on the SDP can be found at www.analog.com/sdp.

EVALUATION BOARD SETUP PROCEDURE
Windows XP Software Installation Guide
SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
2.
3.
Install the SDP drivers by double-clicking SDPDrivers.exe
and following the relevant installation instructions. See the
UG-291 for further instructions on installation of the SDP-S
platform or the UG-277 if the SDP-B platform is used.
Install the Analog Devices ADF4153-4-6-7 software by
double-clicking ADF4153-4-6-7_Setup.msi.
If you are using Windows XP, follow the instructions in
the Windows XP Software Installation Guide section (see
Figure 3 to Figure 7).
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, follow the
instructions in the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Software
Installation Guide section (see Figure 8 to Figure 12).
Note that the software requires Microsoft Windows
Installer and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (or higher).
The installer connects to the Internet and downloads
Microsoft .NET Framework automatically. Alternatively,
before running the ADF4153-4-6-7_Setup.msi, both the
installer and .NET Framework can be installed from the
CD provided.
Connect your SDP board (black) or USB adapter board
(green) by USB. If you are using an SDP board, the drivers
install automatically, and you are ready to run the software.
If you are using a USB adapter board on Windows XP,
follow the steps in the Windows XP Driver Installation
Guide section (see Figure 13 to Figure 16).
On Windows Vista or Windows 7, the drivers install
automatically.

The Main Controls tab controls the PLL settings (see Figure 18).
Use the Reference Frequency text box to set the correct reference frequency and the reference frequency divider. The default
reference on the software window is at 10 MHz; it must be
changed to 25 MHz if the on-board reference oscillator is used.
In the Sweep and Hop tab, you can make the device sweep a
range of frequencies or hop between two set frequencies.
In the Latches/Registers section at the bottom of the window,
the values to be written to each register are displayed. If the
background on the text box is green, the value displayed is
different from the value actually on the device. Click Write Rx
(where x = 0 to 3) to write that value to the device.
