Q. ADAR1000 IC test setup

Hello.

Videos related to ADAR1000 are posted on the ADI website.

The attached picture is a video capture of the ADI homepage.

(Video name: Stingray: X/Ku Band Phased Array Protyping System by ADI)

I would like to know all the information related to the test setup for that picture.

I am trying to test by configuring a test setup like the picture below.

I would appreciate it if you could give me specific information.

I look forward to your quick response.

    The intent behind this slide was to show that building a demonstration with the ADAR1000 evaluation board(s) was very difficult and is not recommended.

    But if you would like to know, the basic hardware setup of this demonstration was:

    • RF Signal Generator operating at 10 GHz,
    • A 1-to-2 power splitter
    • SMA cables
    • 2 ADAR1000 eval boards and 8 sma cables
    • 1 16x1 antenna board (using 8 antennas)
    • 1 SDP-S (to program the ADAR1000's)
