Manual and help for the ADF4108 evaluation board

Dear all

 

For one of our projects we bought an evaluation board from Analog Devices, namely the ADF4108.

 

The manual available explains how to install the software

And also how to test the evaluation board

We would like to know if there is a more extended manual available than the one mentioned on your website?

Its not clear for us what all the combinations in the software can be, concerning the different selections that can be made in the different menu's.

Also the hardware wiring on the evaluation board and the expected voltage levels is not clear to us. Of course there is a schematic available, but nothing more...

 

For instance:

- What should be the voltage / current level that we can expect out of the charge pump?

- If we use an external active loopfilter and an external VCO, do we softwarematically need to activate the charge pump? If so, how can we do this?

 

Can you please provide us with an answer to these questions?

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards
