EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
The evaluation board comes with a cable to connect to the USB
port of a PC. The silkscreen for the evaluation board is shown
in Figure 2. The board schematics are shown in Figure 11,
Figure 12, and Figure 13.
RF OUTPUT STAGE
The RF output stage of the board allows the user to insert a
tuned load for a particular frequency. The particular network
inserted in the board is optimized for 120 MHz operation. For
different frequencies, the output stage needs different component
values. Consult the ADF4360-8 data sheet for further information.
If in doubt, use a 50 Ω resistor instead of the shunt inductor and
a 100 pF bypass capacitor and a 0 Ω resistor instead of the series
inductor.
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
optimal, and, in some cases, the part may malfunction.
In applications that only use the divider, both RF outputs are
best terminated with a shunt 50 Ω resistor to AVDD, a series
100 pF dc bypass capacitor, and a 50 Ω load to GND.
EXTERNAL INDUCTOR OPTIONS
08892-002
The ADF4360-8 uses external inductors (L1 and L2) to set up the
LC tank circuit of the VCO. The evaluation board has a footprint
for the placement of these. A value of 220 nH is inserted on the
board giving a VCO center frequency of 120 MHz. Insert two
470 Ω resistors (R25 and R26) parallel to ground for both L1 and L2
(see Figure 3).
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 PLL comprises the ADF4360-8BCPZ 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.
Users can 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.
08892-003
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 120 MHz, a PFD frequency of
1 MHz, and a low-pass filter bandwidth of 40 kHz. To design a
filter for different frequency setups, use the ADIsimPLL simulation
software.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE QUICK START PROCEDURES
The control software and USB drivers for EV-ADF4360-8EB1Z
accompany the EV-ADF4360-8EB1Z on a CD.
To install the software, use the following steps:
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
WINDOWS VISTA OS AND WINDOWS 7 (32-BIT) OS
1.
Plug a USB cable into the USB connector on the evaluation
board. The Found New Hardware box opens. See Figure 5.
Choose Install from a list or specified location
(Advanced).
08892-005

Figure 6. Successful Installation
For Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit), you must manually
install the drivers. To do so, use the following steps:
After you have installed the software, install the USB drivers.
To do so, use the following steps:
1.
08892-006
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.

If the installation is successful, the message in Figure 9
appears.
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.

USING THE EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE
The control software for the EV-ADF4360-8EB1Z accompanies
the EV-ADF4360-8EB1Z on a CD. To install the software, see
the Evaluation Board Software Quick Start Procedures section.
Use the Frequency Settings section to control the output
frequency. You can input the desired output frequency
in the RF Output Frequency text box (in megahertz).
To run the software, double-click the ADF4360.exe file on the
desktop or from the Start menu.
In the Registers tab, you can manually input the desired value
to be written to the registers.
The main interface window opens (see Figure 10). 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.
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 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, the value displayed is
different from the value actually on the device. Click Write N
counter Latch or Write R counter Latch to write that value to
the device.
Press the F2, F3, and F4 keys to 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.
The Settings section controls the charge pump current setting,
the output power setting, and the multiplexer output setting.
