EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
The EVAL-ADF4150HVEB1Z schematics are shown in Figure 9,
Figure 10, Figure 11, and Figure 12. The silkscreen of the
evaluation board is shown in Figure 2.
POWER SUPPLIES
There are two separate supply voltages required for the
evaluation board.
•
•
Banana connectors should be supplied with 30 V. This
powers the LM317LDG regulator, which provides a
regulated 29 V to VP (the charge pump supply of the
ADF4150HV) and 12 V for the DCYS100200-12 VCO
supply (VVCO).
The test point labeled +5V must be supplied with 5 V, as
shown in Figure 8. This powers high precision, low noise
ADP150AUJZ-3.3 linear regulators to provide 3.3 V to VDD
on the board (which supplies the ADF4150HV AVDD, DVDD,
and SDVDD pins), to VOUT (which supplies the ADF4150HV
RF outputs pull-up), and to the ADL5541 buffer, which
improves phase frequency detector (PFD) spur levels at the
VCO output.
from the VCO output, the ADL5541 is not needed and can be
bypassed.
The device is quite sensitive to impedance unbalance. If only
one port of the differential pair is used, the other should be
terminated with a 50 Ω load. The external VCO output should
also be terminated in a 50 Ω load.
DEFAULT OPERATION SETTINGS
This board is shipped with a TCXO that provides a reference
frequency of 25 MHz, a fourth-order low-pass filter with 20 kHz
bandwidth at ICP = 300 μA, and an octave range VCO with a
1 GHz to 2 GHz frequency range. To test the performance of
the part for a different frequency range and a different loop filter,
the relevant components on the board must be changed.
Note that the Synergy Microwave Corp. VCO tuning sensitivity
decreases as the tuning voltage increases (see Figure 3). To
maintain a constant loop filter bandwidth, increase the charge
pump value to the maximum of 400 µA for frequencies greater
than approximately 1.8 GHz.
The D3 LED indicates when the ADF4150HV is powered.
INPUT SIGNALS
The reference signal is necessary for proper operation of the
synthesizer. It can be sourced from a provided TCXO or from
an external generator, which can be connected to the REFIN
edge mount connector. To use an external reference generator, it
is necessary to remove R101 and R100 to disconnect the TCXO
from the reference input and from the supply. R102 can be populated with a 50 Ω resistor to adjust the impedance matching of
the evaluation board to the external reference source.
Digital SPI signals are supplied from the Cypress microcontroller, U6, which is used for communication with the USB port
of the PC.
All components necessary for local oscillator (LO) generation are
inserted on the board. The PLL is made up of the ADF4150HV
synthesizer, a fourth-order passive loop filter, and the octave range
VCO. The loop filter is inserted between the charge pump output
and the VCO input, as shown in Figure 12. If replacing the VCO, a
VCO in a T-package (or similar) must be used. The VCO output is
available at the edge mount SMA connector, VCO_I/O, and the
differential RF output of the part is connected to the RFOUT+
and RFOUT− edge mount SMA connectors.
A buffer, the ADL5541, is placed between the VCO output and
the ADF4150HV RFIN+ pin, which significantly lowers the PFD
spur levels seen at the VCO output below −110 dBc. If the PFD
spur level measured on the VCO output without a buffer is
sufficient (approximately −80 dBc) or if the output signal is
taken only from the RF output pins of the ADF4150HV and not

Prescaler for Microwave VCO
65
The board contains the ADF5001, an 18 GHz divide-by-4
prescaler for users who want to interface a high frequency
microwave VCO to the ADF4150HV. For example, using a
12 GHz external VCO, use the VTUNE SMA as described in
the External VCO Option section, but, in this case, connect the
VCO output to the PRE_IN SMA connector. The prescaler
must be enabled by moving Jumper LK1 into Position B. The
ADF4150HV should be programmed to accept a 12 GHz ÷ 4
frequency, or 3 GHz. Isolate the VCO tracks from the output of
the prescaler by removing C37. It is recommended to interface
the prescaler differentially for best performance; therefore, swap
C38 (100 pF) into the space provided for C35. R33 can be removed
as shown in Figure 4. Note that the loop filter should be redesigned
when changing the VCO and/or reference frequencies.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS
PHASE NOISE MEASUREMENT
The VVCO connector can be used as a test point to measure the
supply voltage of the VCO in its default configuration. It can
also be used to provide an external supply for the on-board
VCO; however, if an external supply for VCO is used, Resistor R31
must be removed to disconnect the connector from the output
of the on-board voltage regulator.
With the default settings, in-band phase noise of close to
−101 dBc/Hz can be measured. This translates to a normalized
phase noise floor of −211 dBc/Hz. To measure the ADF4150HV
normalized phase noise specification of −213 dBc/Hz, increase
the loop bandwidth to 50 kHz or greater. The simplest way to
do this is to change the RSET resistor (R4) to 3.3 kΩ. This
increases the charge pump current from 400 µA to 618 µA
with a corresponding increase in loop bandwidth. With the
wider loop bandwidth, a phase noise of −103 dBc/Hz can be
measured:
External VCO Option
PN = −213 + 10 log(25 MHz) + 20 log(1500/25) =
−103 dBc/Hz
The variation of phase noise vs. PLL loop bandwidth can be
modeled in ADIsimPLL.
10676-004
Optionally, an external VCO can be used. In this case, it is
necessary to remove R32 and insert a 0 Ω link at R46 to form a
connection between the loop filter output and the VTUNE
SMA edge mount connector. Remove R31 to disconnect the onboard VCO from the power supply. Remove Resistor R26 to
disconnect the output of the on-board VCO from the RF signal
path, and replace Resistors R27 and R28 with 0 Ω links to
ensure operation of the VCO_I/O connector as an input from
an external VCO.

10676-023
2.
If using a different VCO and loop filter than provided on
the board, ensure that a VCO and loop filter are properly
inserted on the board. If a microwave VCO is going to be
used together with the ADF5001 prescaler, move Jumper LK1
into Position B to power up the prescaler. Use ADIsimPLL
to generate the loop filter component values.
Install the Analog Devices ADF4150 family software.
Connect the evaluation board to a PC using the supplied
USB cable. Follow the hardware driver installation procedure
when it appears.
If the on-board crystal oscillator is used, skip this step.
If an external reference is necessary, connect a reference
signal to the REFIN edge mount connector.
Connect the power supply to the board.
Connect a spectrum analyzer to Connector VCO_I/O.
Run the ADF4150 family software.
In the software window, set the RF frequency (Figure 7
shows a screenshot of the signal source analyzer operating
in phase noise mode, taken at a frequency of 1.4 GHz). Set
the PFD frequency as defined in ADIsimPLL, and program
the reference frequency to 25 MHz if the on-board TCXO
is used or to the frequency that has been supplied to the
REFIN connector. See Figure 8 for the suggested setup.
Measure the output spectrum. Figure 7 shows a
1.4 GHz output.
