ADF41020 Maximum Frequency limit

Dear all,


For our research at Texas A&M, we need to use high purity 16GHz for ADC testing. The ADF41020 evaluation board has the proper PLL chip which can go up to 18GHz, but the VCO used on this board can only produce up to ~13GHz. My question is, is there any another evaluation board that has a better VCO which could produce up to 16GHz clean RF Source?


Thank you very much for your help.


Best Regards,

  • Hi Rbrennan,

    Thank you for your reply. Ayman and I are in the same group trying to figure this 16GHz source generator issue now. As for "get  a few samples of VCO", do you have any recommendations that could work up to 16GHz? I believe we have access to the heat gun and probably someone could rework the board. Just having a hard time finding the proper VCO...

    Thank you.
