Evaluation board ADF4360-7 - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I intend to use Evaluation board ADF4360-7(from ANALOG) as a LO for a RF system. Does anyone has experience of using this board? Is it difficult to use?

ya its easy to use. Need to pick the external inductor value in order to set the centre frequency. Their software (Simpll i think its called??) helps you to do this.

Can I use only the bundled software to set the center frequency. I don't want to re-solder another inductor on it. Guest, it is only one way to assign the center freqency.

you're a very lazy man!
it comes with inductors already soldered for a particular centre frequency. if you want another frequency you need to replace the inductors.

you are right, i am lazy man. Besides that, this project is funded by school and I should choose every component carefully. In addition to this, my experience in RF is not enough. Thus, I need to make clean everything before we actually buy.
Anyway, thank you for your help.
