Evaluating the ADF4377 Microware Wideband Synthesizer with Integrated VCO

The EV-ADF4377SD1Z evaluates the pefromance of theADF4377 frequency synthesizer with an integrated voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) for phase-locked loops (PLLs).

The evaluation board contains the ADF4377 frequency synthesizer with an integrated VCO, a USB interface, power supply connectors, and subminiature Version A (SMA) connectors.

This board requires an SDP-S board (not supplied with the kit). The SDP-S allows software programming of the EV-ADF4377SD1Z board with ACE software.
