  • v1.2.1: Bug fix in register dump feature.
  • v1.1.10: Added detail to ADF4355-3 frequency update sequence event log.
  • v1.1.9: Bug fixes in initialization and frequency update sequences.
  • v1.1.7: Bug fix - rounding error.
  • v1.1.6: Bug fixes and changes to ADF5356 default register values.
  • v1.1.4: Added ADF5356 prescaler warning (8/9 must be used for frequencies > 6500 MHz)
  • v1.1.3: Added "ADF5356" to application title.
  • v1.1.2: Added ADF5356 and bug fixes.
  • v1.0.10: Added ADF4356.
  • v0.55.10: Bug fixes to RF calculations for very fine resolutions.
  • v0.55.9: Added repeat sweep feature.
  • v0.55.8: Enabled R10 autoset by default for ADF4355 and ADF4355-2.
  • v0.55.7: Corrected R6[10] to match ADF4355, ADF4355-2, ADF4355-3 datasheet. (Bit doesn't matter because it's not connected to anything).
  • v0.55.6: Bug fix to R10 for ADF4355 and ADF4355-2.
  • v0.55.5: Multiple fixes to the ADF4355-3.

  • v0.55.3: Unreleased.
  • v0.55.2: Added ADF4355-3 control for release.
  • v0.54.0: Changed ADF4355-3 default settings. Minor change to R12 for all parts - set Phase Resync Clock Divider value to 1 to match datasheets.
  • v0.53.3: Improved Manual mode with bug fixes. Added an R6 write to the Frequency Update Sequence because changing the N value changes the optimum negative bleed setting.
  • v0.53.2: Bug fixes
  • v0.53.0: Added new Frequency Update Write Sequence as in Rev. A datasheets.
  • v0.52.0: Housekeeping.
  • v0.51.0: Not released.
  • v0.50.4: Bug fixes in INT, FRAC, MOD calculations.
  • v0.50.3: Fixed minor bug in ADC Clock autoset algorithm.
  • v0.49.0: Housekeeping
  • v0.48.0: Unreleased.
  • v0.47.2: Tweaked charge pump currents to match datasheet. Removed Spectrum Analyzer demo tab. Fixed bug in VCO Band Div algorithm.
  • v0.46.1: Initial release.
