How to Trigger ADF4151 to sweep up in 800us and down in 200us

Category: Software
Product Number: ADF4151
Software Version: ADF4151 Eval Software

ADF4151 is capable of sweeping 7-8GHz, but I have not been able to figure out how to trigger the sweep via TX data, or to set the sweep time below 1ms. Are these limitations of the GUI, the chip, or the operator? Thanks in advance, Dan

  • ADF41513 officially does not support ramping, it's not a tested parameter. We reserved the ramp generation registers as there were some issues with the ramp engine so we decided to cut ramp generation support on this part prior to release.

    The ADF4159 is the part I'd recommend, even though its performance is not as good as the ADF41513 unfortunately
