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-ADF4156SD1Z schematics are
shown in Figure 21 to 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
ADF4156 AVDD and DVDD pins) and allows the user to choose
either 3.0 V or 5 V for the ADF4156 VP. The default settings are
3.0 V for the ADF4156 VDD and 5 V for the ADF4156 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. A
low noise, high slew rate reference source is best for achieving
the stated performance of the ADF4156. This can be connected
to Connector J11. If preferred, the edge mount connector, J5,
can be inserted and used instead. To use this option, it is
necessary to remove R16 and insert a 51 Ω resistor in R17.
Digital SPI signals are supplied through the SDP connector, J1.
SDP-S is the preferred platform to be used. The SDP-B can also
be used but Resistor R57 must be removed on the SDP-B board.
Some additional low frequency spurious may appear if the SDP-B
connector is used.
09173-002
The necessary reference input comes from the on-board TCXO.
Figure 2. Evaluation Board Silkscreen
OUTPUT SIGNALS
All components necessary for LO generation are on board. The
PLL is made up of the ADF4156 synthesizer, a passive loop filter,
and the VCO. A 5.8 GHz VCO from Z-Comm is supplied with
the evaluation board. A 20 kHz low-pass filter is inserted
between the charge pump output and the VCO input. The
0.31 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.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT 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.

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 PLL 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/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 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.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE
The control software for the EV-ADF4156SD1Z accompanies
the EV-ADF4156SD1Z on a CD. To install the software, see the
Software Installation section.
To run the software, click the ADI ADF4153-4-6-7 file on the
desktop or in the Start menu.
Note that, when connecting the board, it takes about 5 sec to
10 sec for the status label to change.
Under the File menu, the current settings can be saved to and
loaded from, a text file.
09173-017
On the Select Device and Connection tab, choose your device,
your connection method, and click Connect.
Confirm that SDP board connected, ADF4xxx USB Adapter
Board connected, or Analog Devices RFG.L Eval Board
connected is displayed at the bottom left of the window.
Otherwise, the software has no connection to the evaluation board.

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.
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 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 4) to write that value to the device.
09173-018
In the Registers tab, you can manually input the desired value
to be written to the registers.
