Evaluation Board for ADF4360-6 Integrated PLL and VCO Frequency Synthesizer
FEATURES
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Self-contained board for generating RF frequencies
Flexibility for reference input, PFD frequency, and loop
bandwidth
Accompanying software allows complete control of
synthesizer functions from a PC
USB/battery-operated 9 V supplies
Typical phase noise performance of −141 dBc/Hz at 3 MHz offset
Typical spurious performance of −65 dBc at 200 kHz offset
(1.2 GHz output)
The ADF4360-6EBZ1 evaluation board is designed to allow the
user to evaluate the performance of the ADF4360-6 frequency
synthesizer consisting of an integrated PLL and VCO (see Figure 1).
It contains the ADF4360-6BCPZ, a USB connector, and SMA
connectors for the RF outputs. Unpopulated SMA footprints are
available for the power supplies, the chip enable (CE), and the
external reference input. The evaluation board also contains the
loop filter to complete the PLL. It can be modified as necessary for
the PLL requirements of the user. A USB cable is included with
the board to allow software programmability from a PC.
The package also contains a CD with Windows® software to allow
quick, user-friendly programming of the synthesizer. The CD
contains additional PLL data sheets, technical notes, articles, and
ADIsimPLL™ V3.4 (Analog Devices, Inc., PLL simulation
software). More information is available at www.analog.com/pll.

EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
The evaluation board comes with a cable to connect it to the
USB port of a PC. The silkscreen and cable diagram for the
evaluation board are shown in Figure 2. The board schematics
are shown in Figure 9 through Figure 11.
Users may provide their own power supplies using the J4 and J5
connectors, as shown in Figure 2. Hardware power-down using
the CE pin can be controlled by inserting an SMA connector
into J6 and removing R12.
The on-board filter is a third-order, passive, low-pass filter. The
filter contains three capacitors (C13, C14, and C15) plus two
resistors (R10 and R11). The footprint for R10 is located on the
underside of the board. The design parameters for the loop
filter are for a center frequency of 1200 MHz, a PFD frequency
of 200 kHz, and a low-pass filter bandwidth of 10 kHz. To design a
filter for different frequency setups, use the ADIsimPLL simulation
software.
RF OUTPUT STAGES
08889-002
The output stage of the board contains a tuned load for the
particular frequency of operation. The particular network inserted
in the board is optimized for 1200 MHz operation. This consists
of a 7.5 nH shunt inductor, a 10 pF series capacitor, and a 7.5 nH
series inductor. If in doubt, use a 50 Ω resistor instead of the
shunt inductor, a 100 pF bypass capacitor, and a series 0 Ω
resistor. It is important that the same components be placed
on the RFOUTA and RFOUTB lines. In addition, it is essential
that both outputs be terminated with 50 Ω loads. Otherwise,
the output power is not optimum, and in some cases, the part
may malfunction.
Figure 2. Evaluation Board Silkscreen—Top View
The board is powered from a single 9 V battery, or from the
USB supply, by changing the position of Switch SW1. All
components necessary for LO generation are catered for on-board.
A 10 MHz TCXO from Fox Electronics provides the necessary
reference input. Otherwise, an external reference signal can be
connected via J3. The TCXO can be disabled by removing the
R3 and R4 resistors. The PLL comprises the ADF4360-6BCPZ
and a passive loop filter. The VCO output from RFOUTA is
available through the standard SMA Connector J1 and the
complementary RFOUTB VCO output is available from J2.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE QUICK START PROCEDURES
It is vital to install the software before connecting the board
to the PC. The control software and USB drivers for EVALADF4360-6EBZ1 accompany the EVAL-ADF4360-6EBZ1
on a CD. To install the software, use the following steps:
If the installation is successful, the message in Figure 4 appears.
Open ADF4360_setup.msi.
The install wizard guides you through the installation
process. The software is installed in a default directory called
C:/Program Files/Analog Devices/ADF4360.
The software requires Microsoft’s .NET Framework Version 3.5
or later to be installed on your machine. The installer automatically downloads the framework from the Microsoft website if you
do not have this installed. If you do not have an Internet connection or have a slow connection on the PC, you can install the
.NET Framework directly from the CD. Do this by double-clicking
dotnetfx.exe. Once installed, run ADF4360_Setup.msi again.
WINDOWS XP OS
After you have installed the software, install the USB drivers.
To do so, use the following steps:
2.
Plug a USB cable into the USB connector on the evaluation
board. The Found New Hardware box opens. See Figure 3.
Choose Install from a list or specified location (Advanced).

WINDOWS VISTA OS AND WINDOWS 7 (32-BIT) OS
3.
For Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit), if the device drivers
do not install automatically, you will have to manually install
the drivers. To do so, use the following steps:
Find the new unknown device (the evaluation board)
in Device Manager and double-click it to open the
properties. The device should be Unknown device,
under Other devices (see Figure 5).

Windows 7 64-bit uses a different driver than 32-bit systems. To
install this driver:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Disconnect the USB evaluation board.
Open ADF4360_setup.msi.
The install wizard guides you through the installation
process. The software is installed in a default directory
called C:/Program Files/Analog Devices/ADF4360.
Connect your USB evaluation board. The driver should be
found automatically.
Note that installing this driver package disables older versions
of Analog Devices PLL software; therefore, only install if needed.
08889-006
2.
On the Update Driver Software dialog box, choose
Browse my computer for driver software.
Browse to C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\ADF4360.
Click OK or Next.
If prompted by Windows security, choose Install this
driver software anyway.
If the installation is successful, the message in Figure 7
appears.

USING THE EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE
The Settings section controls the charge pump current setting,
the output power setting, and the multiplexer output setting.
The control software for the EVAL-ADF4360-xEBZ1 accompanies the EVAL-ADF4360-xEBZ1 on a CD. To install the
software, see the Evaluation Board Software Quick Start
Procedures section.
To run the software, click the ADF4360.exe file on the desktop
or in the Start menu.
The main interface window appears (see Figure 8). Confirm
that Analog Devices RFG.L Eval Board connected is displayed
at the top of the window. Otherwise, the software has no connection to the evaluation board.
The evaluation board can be connected and disconnected while
the software is running. Note that when connecting the board,
it takes about 5 seconds for the status label to change.
Under the File menu, the current settings can be saved to, and
loaded from, a text file.
Use the REF IN Frequency text box to set the correct reference
frequency and the reference frequency divider. The reference
TCXO on the evaluation board runs at 10 MHz.
Use the Frequency Settings section to control the output
frequency. The user can input the desired output frequency
to the RF Output Frequency text box (in megahertz).
In the Registers tab, the user can manually input the desired
value to be written to the registers.
In the Sweep and hop tab, the user can make the device sweep
a range of frequencies, or hop between two set frequencies.
In the Latches to write 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, then the value displayed is
different to the value actually on the device. Click Write x Latch
to write that value to the device.
The F2, F3, and F4 keys switch between the three tabs. F12
increases the output frequency by one channel spacing and
writes it to the device. F11 decreases the output frequency by
one channel spacing.
