EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
OVERVIEW
RF OUTPUT
The EVAL-ADF4350EB2Z comes with a cable for connecting to
the USB port of a PC. The silk screen for the evaluation board is
shown in Figure 8. The board schematic is shown in Figure 5,
Figure 6, and Figure 7.
The EVAL-ADF4350EB2Z has four SMA output connectors
(dual differential output). The device is quite sensitive to
impedance unbalance. If only one port of a differential pair
is used, terminate the other with a 50 Ω load.
POWER SUPPLIES
LOOP FILTER
The EVAL-ADF4350EB2Z can be powered either from the
USB port or via dc power connectors (4 mm banana connectors). When feeding via banana connectors, 3.75 V to 11 V is
a suitable feeding voltage. The power supply circuitry allows
the user to use one, two, or three separate LDOs to feed the
ADF4350 (using fewer LDOs increases the risk of spur
contaminated dc feeds). Consult the board schematic in
Figure 5, Figure 6, and Figure 7 to determine a suitable jumper
setting on Header J7.
The loop filter schematic is included in the board schematic on
Figure 5. The loop filter component placements are clarified in
Figure 2.

An LED, D6, indicates when USB power is available, and
another LED, D5, indicates when the ADF4350 is powered.
Switch SW1 is used to power the ADF4350 from the USB port
and Switch SW2 is used to power the part from the external dc
connectors.

C15
In case the USB processor or clock causes spurs on the RF
output signal, the user may feed the evaluation board via the
dc connectors and unplug the USB cable, thereby removing
power from the USB interface circuitry. There is also a
grounded frame surrounding the USB interface circuitry
to allow mounting of a shielding box.
C14
Figure 2. Loop Filter Placement
REFERENCE SOURCE
The J8 to J13 connectors can be populated if the user wishes
to measure any spectral contamination on a specific dc voltage.
Otherwise, the voltages are also present on either Header J6 or
Header J7 for easy access and measurements.
The 10 MHz TCXO from Fox Electronics provides the necessary
reference signal. An external REFIN may be used if desired. In
this case, disable the on-board TCXO by removing R1 and R2.
R3 can be populated with 50 Ω to adjust impedance matching
of the evaluation board to the external reference source.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE
The control software for the EVAL-ADF4350 accompanies the
EVAL-ADF4350EB2Z on a CD. To install the software, use the
following steps:
1.
2.
3.
Click setup.exe.
The install wizard guides you through the installation
process. The software is installed in a default directory
called C:/Program Files/Analog Devices/ADF4350.
To run the software, click the .exe file.
The main interface window appears (see Figure 4). Confirm
that USB OK is displayed on the right side of the screen. Otherwise, the software has no connection to the evaluation board.
It is also possible to disconnect the USB by clicking the
Disconnect USB button. Should this happen, no data is sent
to the part. This function is to be used before disconnecting
the board from the USB connection. When the board is
connected again, click the USB connect button to enable the
programming of the part. This ensures the PC does not freeze
up when the USB cable is disconnected.
The Outputs section controls the charge pump current setting,
the output power setting, and the multiplexer output setting.
Use the Output Frequency section to control the output
frequency. You may specify two frequencies, and select which
one the device operates at. For some frequencies, the device can
operate in two modes: the low end of the VCO band or the high
end, plus an extra divide by two. To control which mode is used,
select Minimum Output Divider in the Options section.
The device can be set to toggle between the two set frequencies
by selecting Alternate in the Dynamic section. The time spent
on each frequency is set in the Approximate Delay field. To
stop, click Stop. It is also possible to sweep from f1 to f2 with
the channel spacing resolution with an approximate time delay
on each frequency.
It is also possible to select Low Spur Mode or Low Noise Mode
for the frac-N mode in the Options section. You can also set the
cycle slip reduction bit.
The Settings section displays selected settings. Click Registers to
display every bit of the register settings. To download these to
the device, click Update ALL.
08909-008
Use the Reference section to set the correct reference frequency
and reference frequency divider. The reference TCXO on the
evaluation board runs at 10 MHz. To force the device to operate
in integer-N mode, set the R divider so that the PFD frequency
(displayed in the Settings section) equals the channel spacing
(set in the Output Frequency section) and select the Integer-N
when possible check box (in the Options section).
