HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
The evaluation board comes with a USB adapter board and cables
for connecting the evaluation board to the USB port of a PC.
The silkscreen and cable diagram for the evaluation board are
shown in Figure 2 and Figure 3, and the board schematics are
shown in Figure 8 and Figure 9.

To use alternative power supplies for the 5 V power rail and
the demodulator, use Connectors J18 and J19, respectively. In
addition, J21, J23, J24, and J25 can be used to connect external
supplies to the ADF9010, which may result in improved VCO
phase noise. The on-board filter is a third-order, passive lowpass filter that contains three capacitors (C61, C62, and C63)
and two resistors (R19 and R20).
08009-002
The design parameters for the loop filter are for a center frequency
of 900 MHz, a channel spacing of 250 kHz, and a low-pass filter
bandwidth of 7 kHz. To design a filter for different frequency
setups, use ADIsimPLL Version 3.1 or higher.
Figure 2. Evaluation Board Silkscreen—Top View
The evaluation board is powered from a single 6 V supply. All
components necessary for the Tx upconversion of baseband
signals and for the Rx downconversion and filtering of Rx signals
are included on board. An external reference signal is necessary
for PLL operation via J9. The PLL comprises the ADF9010 and
a passive loop filter. Depending on the LO output options selected,
the combined LO outputs or one LO output is available at J12.
To measure this signal, the LO must be rerouted from the demodulator by desoldering R29 and inserting a 0 Ω link into R31.
The latest revision of the board has been modified to allow the
ADL5382 to be used in place of a different demodulator. Unlike
the previous version, pull-up resistors on the baseband outputs
are not required, so the regulator and the link to the 5 V supply
voltage have been removed. The board schematics may indicate
connections to a pull-up supply, but the pull-up supply is not used.
In addition, the schematics show all possible connections for
the operation of the part, but not all components are populated.
The bill of materials (Table 1) provides an accurate summary of
the values and components used.
The rms detector (ADL5501) measures the power level of the
RF signal connected to J2.

LO OUTPUT OPTIONS
Two options exist for connecting the LO output from the
ADF9010 to the ADL5382 demodulator. Due to the differential
nature of the ADF9010 VCO circuit, the differential outputs can be
connected through a Series L (or 0 Ω) resistor, a Shunt L (~9 nH)
inductor, and a dc bypass capacitor (100 pF); the relevant components are shown in red in Figure 4. Components shown in
black in Figure 4 should be omitted.

If the user prefers to use a balun to drive one of the demodulator
LO inputs, the two LO outputs from the ADF9010 can be
combined as shown in Figure 5. The unused input to the ADF9010
is ac-coupled to ground using C6 and R57. Recommended circuit
values for the balun are 0 Ω resistors for the Series L (L18, L19),
7.5 nH for the balun inductors (L21, L22), 47 nH for the RF choke
at L20, and 3.3 pF for the balun capacitors. Capacitor C77 is
a dc-blocking capacitor and should have a value of 100 pF.
Resistor R29 requires a 0 Ω resistor to complete the circuit.

SOFTWARE DESCRIPTION
Optimizing Operation
INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE
The control software for EVAL-ADF9010EBZ1 is provided
on the CD included in the evaluation board kit. To set up the
software, use the following steps:
1. Click ADF9010_Setup.msi.
2. The installation wizard appears. Follow the on-screen
instructions.
3. The software is installed in a default directory called
C:/Program Files/Analog Devices/ADF9010.
It may be necessary to adjust the Tx output power level and the
LO output power level to optimize operation. These settings are
displayed in the Main Controls tab (see Figure 7).
To optimize the evaluation board operation,
1.
USING THE SOFTWARE
To run the software,
2.
3.
From the Start menu, navigate to the ADF9010 item in
the Analog Devices folder and double-click ADF9010.
In the first window, select ADF9010 and USB board
(green); then click Connect (see Figure 6).
Click the Main Controls tab to view the main controls. The
default values are set to lock the VCO to 900 MHz with a reference frequency of 10 MHz and a PFD frequency of 250 kHz.
2.
3.
The part should now be set up, allowing you to modify other
features. As stated in the ADF9010 data sheet, the correct sequence
of register writes is as follows: R1, R5, R0, R2, and R3.
08009-106
1.
Ensure that the Rx filters are operating correctly. To
accomplish this, the filter calibration must be set correctly,
which involves setting the Rx calibration divider to divide
the PLL reference (REFIN) to exactly 2 MHz and setting
the correct timeout period for the high-pass filter boost.
For more information, refer to the ADF9010 data sheet.
Select the desired Rx filter bandwidth and gain.
Ensure that all registers are programmed by clicking each
update button at the bottom of the window. Follow the
recommended sequence of buttons: Update R1, Update R5,
Update R0, Update R2, and finally Update R3.
