1. If customer orders EKIT01-HMC6451 eval board, Is there HMC7010 and HMC7011
boards with die chipset , inside the EKIT01-HMC6451 eval kit?
2. Is the HMC6000 and HMC6001 pin to pin compatible with HMC6300BG ve
HMC6301BG. If they order EKIT01-HMC6451 and start the test, after can they
change the RF Front End chip boards (HMC7010 ve HMC7011 with HMC6300BG ve
HMC6301BG)  and still continue their tests?
3. If they order this eval board, can they get detailed support?
4. Is there any baseband or setup to test these chipsets.
 

 

1. If they order EKIT01-HMC6451 eval board. Is there HMC7010 and HMC7011 boards
with die chipset , inside the EKIT01-HMC6451 eval kit?

Yes the full EKIT01-HMC6451 includes the HMC7010 & HMC7011 (die epoxied onto
PCB, then wire bonded and covered by protective covers).  The upcoming
EKIT01-HMC8274 will include individual evaluation boards of the HMC6300BG46 and
HMC6301BG46 as well (SMT ball grid array based packaged parts soldered to
PCB).  We will be offering these boards individually as well for customers
equipped to test the individual RX and TX boards.

2. If the HMC6000 and HMC6001 are pin to pin compatible with HMC6300BG ve
HMC6301BG. If they order EKIT01-HMC6451 and start the test. After can they
change the RF Front End chip boards (HMC7010 ve HMC7011 with HMC6300BG ve
HMC6301BG)  and still continue their tests?

This is independent design with BGA chipset as mentioned in 1 and hence
non-interchangeable.


3. If the order this eval board, can they get detailed support?

Yes but as a strong recommendation from our side it may be better for customer
to wait for the new EKIT01-HMC8274 in September'2015 as that is what we will be
supporting going forward - if they can wait that long. 
4. Is there any baseband or setup to test these chipsets.

Below is a suggested configuration to test these parts that our team can walk
through if customer decided in evaluating the parts For the setup, please find
the presentation attached.
