Eval board should require no more than 500mA. Something like 200 - 300 mA is typical
Also, note that there will be a delay for each frequency step due to the time taken for the SPI writes for the new frequency
On top of what is mentioned in the datasheet, in the ramps and shift keying tab of the ADF4159 software GUI (free download from here) you can see the controls that change the ramp timings. The PFD frequency will change the actual period that the CLK1…
Let me know if you've questions afterwards…
im studying electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen. Right now im doing my master thesis at the Chair of High Frequency Electronics.For my thesis I'm going to develop a radar system which will be used for tracking purposes.At the moment im trying…
The customer thinks the frequency chirping and hopping. For example, chirp 5.5GHz <=> 5.6GHz, hop 5.6GHz to 5.7GHz and chirp 5.7GHz <=> 5.8GHz by triangular mode. However, he is beginning to find it difficult to achieve with the…
Yes there is a way to set the ABP in some of the reserved registers. I will email you some bits to try
Could you help me?
What registers do I need to set to use ADF4159 to generate continuous triangular ramps, and how to deal with unused registers, should I also write them into the program?
What is the supported reference crystal input waveform for ADF4159？？
Is there any recommended 100MHz crystal type？
