i am a little bit in trouble with the HMCAD1511 evaluation board. I am using this board connected to my Zedboard and i want to generate the 1GHz sampling clock on board.
Since the Zedboard i have is not capable of creating such signal, i want to solder the PLL chip on the HMCAD1511 board. I searched on the Hardware User Guide of the board
(here is the link to the document: https://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/evaluation-documentation/hardware-users-guide-140-00036-00-15xx.pdf)
and in the part list is only referred as "do not mount" component.
Does anyone have the complete part list for the board? it will really save me time.
Thanks for the help.
Thank you very much for your post, your answer is quiet helpful, I'm looking for the on board 1GHz clock solution as well, the crystal PCB footprint for the CDCE421A on the Eval01-HMCAD1511 board is quiet unusual, I think I should find a 31.25MHz passive crystal, but still unable to find a suitable component that could fit in the board. Are you able to find the correct component type and vendor? Thanks!
Hi ! pangzegui
I had the same problem. I wasnt' able to find the correct 31.25 MHz crystal to fit the footprint on the PCB.
Thankfully i had this board connected to an FPGA from which i generated a 31.25 MHz signal and routed it to the HMCAD1511 board feeding the Ti chip.
