GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The EVAL-CN0285-EB1Z is the evaluation board described in
the Circuits From the Lab™ Circuit Note CN-0285, Broadband
Low EVM Direct Conversion Transmitter. A photo of the board
is shown in Figure 1. It contains the ADF4351 synthesizer, the
ADL5375 wideband transmit modulator, and ultralow noise
LDOs. The board can be controlled using the ADF4351
programming software. A USB cable is included with the board
to connect to a PC USB port.
Additional information, including other PLL data sheets,
technical notes, articles, and ADIsimPLL™ PLL simulation
software from Analog Devices, Inc., is available at

EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
POWER SUPPLIES
The user must apply 5.5 V to the VSUPPLY power connectors
(4 mm banana connectors). An LED, D6, indicates when USB
power is available, and another LED, D5, indicates when the
main board is powered. Switch SW-EXT is used to switch in the
5.5 V supply.
The default loop filter is set to 70 kHz. Using a charge pump
setting of 2.5 mA is recommended.
IQ INPUTS
The ADL5375 has four differential IQ inputs. These are accessible from the SMA connectors and should be connected to an
appropriate analog baseband IQ source such as the Rhode &
Schwarz AMIQ. Set the dc bias voltage for the IQ inputs at 0.5 V.
The ADL5375 RF output is ac-coupled out to the RFOUT SMA.
There are also two LO output SMA connectors that can be used
to view the filtered ADF4351 RF outputs on a spectrum analyzer.
When connecting to an analyzer, terminate the unused LO
output with a 50 Ω termination. When measuring EVM or
adjacent channel leakage current (ACLR), disconnect these LO
outputs by removing Capacitors C72 and C73 to prevent
loading the circuit.

RF/LO OUTPUTS

REFERENCE SOURCE
The 25 MHz TCXO from Rakon provides the necessary
reference signal. An external REFIN can be used if desired.
In this case, disable the on-board TCXO by removing R59.
R9 can be populated with 50 Ω to match the impedance of the
evaluation board to the external reference source.
The loop filter schematic is included in the evaluation board
and can be found at www.analog.com/CN0285-DesignSupport.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE QUICK START PROCEDURES
The control software for EVAL-CN0285-EB1Z uses the
standard ADF4351 programming software. For more details on
the installation of this software, consult UG-435, Evaluation
Board for the ADF4351 Fractional-N PLL Frequency Synthesizer.
Program the RF output frequency in the Main Controls tab of
the software front panel.
11267-003
After installing the software, run the software by clicking the
ADI ADF435x file on the desktop or in the Start menu. The
software front panel opens (see Figure 3).
Confirm that Analog Devices RFG.L Eval Board connected is
displayed in the bottom left corner of the window. Otherwise,
the software has no connection to the evaluation board. In this
case, check that the cable connection and USB drivers are
correctly installed.
