GENERAL DESCRIPTION
This evaluation board allows the user to evaluate the performance
of the ADF4113HV frequency synthesizer for phase-locked loops
(PLLs). Figure 1 shows the board, which contains the ADF4113HV
synthesizer, an edge-mounted SMA connector for the RF output
signal, power supply connectors, a temperature compensated
reference oscillator (TCXO) of 25 MHz frequency, and an SDP
connector. There is also a loop filter (50 kHz) and a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), the Mini-Circuits ROS-2260W+, on board.
The package contains Windows®-based software (XP or later) to
allow easy programming of the synthesizer.
This evaluation board requires an SDP-S board (shown in
Figure 1, but not supplied with the evaluation board kit). The
SDP-S allows software programming of the ADF4113HV device.

EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
The evaluation board requires the use of an SDP-S motherboard
to program the device. The SDP-S board is not included with
the evaluation board and must be purchased separately. The
EV-ADF4113HVSD1Z schematics are shown in Figure 21 to
Figure 23.
POWER SUPPLIES
The board is powered from external banana connectors and an
external 15 V source connected to the VP SMA connector. The
supply voltage on the banana connectors can vary between 6 V
and 12 V. The power supply circuit provides 3.0 V to VDD on the
board (which supplies the ADF4113HV AVDD and DVDD pins)
and allows the user to choose either 3.0 V or 5 V for the VCO
supply. The default settings are 3.0 V for the ADF4113HV VDD
and 5 V for the VCO supply. Note that VDD should never exceed
3.3 V because exceeding this voltage level may damage the device.
The supply pin, VP, must be driven externally via J10 with 15 V.
09150-002
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
The necessary reference input comes from an on-board temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) of 25 MHz frequency.
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
J5 edge-mount connector, 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 ADF4113HV.
Digital SPI signals are supplied through the SDP connector, J1.
Using the SDP-S board is recommended. The SDP-Blackfin
(SDP-B) board can also be used, but Resistor R57 must be removed
from the SDP-B board. Some additional spurious low frequencies
may appear if the SDP-B connector is used.
Figure 2. Evaluation Board Silkscreen
OUTPUT SIGNALS
All components necessary for local oscillator (LO) generation are
inserted on board. The PLL is made up of the ADF4113HV
synthesizer, a passive loop filter, and the VCO. This board is
supplied with a VCO ROS-2260W+ from Mini-Circuits, which
covers a frequency range from 1290 MHz to 2260 MHz. A lowpass filter of 50 kHz loop bandwidth is inserted between the
charge pump output and the VCO input. 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 a PC via a USB 2.0 high speed
port and provide a range of communication interfaces on a 120pin connector. The pinout for this connector is strictly defined.
A receptacle for this 120-pin connector is included 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.

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 ADI_Int-N_Setup.msi, both the
installer and .NET Framework can be installed from the
CD provided in the evaluation board kit.
Connect your SDP board to EV-ADF4113HVSD1Z and to
the USB port of the PC using the supplied USB cable. If you
are using Windows XP, follow the steps in the Windows XP
Driver Installation Guide section (see Figure 13 to Figure 16).
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, the drivers
install automatically.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE
Confirm that SDP board connected is displayed at the bottom
left of the window (see Figure 17). If this message is not displayed,
the software cannot connect to the evaluation board.
To run the software, click the ADI PLL Int-N file on the desktop or
from the Start menu.
Note that when the board is connected, there is about a 5 sec to
10 sec delay before the status label changes.
On the Select Device and Connection tab, choose the device
and connection method, and then click Connect.
From the File menu, the current settings can be saved to and
loaded from a text file.
09150-017
The control software for the EV-ADF4113HVSD1Z is provided on
a CD included in the evaluation board kit. To install the software,
see the Software Installation section.
Figure 17. Int-N PLL Software, Main Window—Select Device and Connection
Rev. A | Page 10 of 24
Evaluation Board User Guide
UG-165
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 frequency in this box is 10 MHz; it must be changed
to 25 MHz if the on-board reference oscillator is used.
Use the RF Settings section to control the output frequency.
You can type the desired output frequency in the RF VCO
Output Frequency text box (in megahertz).
In the Latches/Registers section at the bottom of the Main
Controls tab of the main 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 R Counter Latch, Write N Counter
Latch, Write Function Latch, or Write Initialization Latch to
write the value displayed to the device.
09150-018
In the Registers tab, you can manually input the desired value
to be written to the registers.
In the Sweep and Hop tab, you can make the device sweep a
range of frequencies or hop between two set frequencies.
