ADF 4350

David <david.g6feo@...>
 

Hello All,

Having read the messages about ADF 4351 I decided to have a dabble, but
I did not need the LF frequencies, I'm after something at 4.2GHz.

Hence I bought an ADF 435X evaluation board from China, it's fitted
with an ADF 4350, it arrived today. It cost me just under £15.

The soldering is not pretty, but it looks functional.

Can anybody point me in the right direction to find data sheets for the
board and a method of setting the frequency.

Thank you,

David.
G6FEO.


FREE test equipment

Dave G8KHU
 

Hi all

Further to my earlier list I've been working through the surplus test equipment to check that things are good enough to be saleable. The following items are not and so are offered FREE to anyone interested for spares, repair or general salvage.


2 off Fireberd 6000 BER test sets - I can't remember how to drive them so I'm unable to test


1 off HP7035B X-Y Plotter - noisy pots


2 off Philips PM3585 Logic Analysers with pods etc - wobbly crt displays and iffy keys


1 off HP8662A 1280MHz signal generator - multiple non-responsive keys and sometimes randomly rests but may be OK if driven via GPIB, I haven't tried


Collection from Newbury (10 mins from M4 Jcn 13) or I can take to Crawley

If anyone wants any or all of the above please respond diectly to my email

Regards
Dave

Re: Réf. : Re: Re: 5.7 GHz PAs

Just to confirm some numbers, with the SMAs changed and at 5.750 GHz
21.4 dBm in gives 36 dBm out or 140 mW in for 4 watts out and only slightly compressed.
So perhaps an out board wilkinson  combiner/splitter  for some more power using two of these.

After a few minutes at over 4 Watts 100% dutu cycle mine dropped power suddenly by about 3dB, but after turning off then allowing to cool, full power was restored.   The LED / PSU was fine.

So it down look as if the advised levels of 3 Watts continuous and 4.5Watts max should be adhered to.

Did you try it after cooling down ?    The SMPSU chip may have an over-temperature cutout.

Now I have lost outout, and the red LED on the heatsink side of the pcb is no longer lit.

Will remove the can and have a look later...

24GHz gear at Crawley

STEPHEN COOKE
 

Due to a change in circumstances , there will be one possibly two 24GHz
transverters for sale at Crawley .

Both are 432 MHz I.F. , based on the Alcatel " white box " modules
and fully working ..... 500mW output if I remember correctly ... I will
check the paperwork .

Looks like there will be lots of goodies for sale on Sunday !

Hi Wolfgang

 

Interesting  the reason I asked the question  is I have two 76 Ghz transceivers that I need to re Xtal

I am also looking for a local oscillator chine to use at 135Ghz

 

So from your note 76,032,1   is not preferred and I have been told the UK have moved from

76,032,1  to 75.967,1  have I got this correct

Re: LM2596S-ADJ Ebay modules

Andy G4JNT
 

I wasn't concerned with RF suppression from the module - that was dealt with elsewhere in the beacon source.

Its not noise from the 19V PSU source you need to concern yourself with, its making sure there is a low enough dynamic source impedance to cope with the  LM2596 on period.   Output C then defines the output ripple.    

The input C is by far the more important in boost converters - those that step a voltage up - as it has to supply the energy to be stored in the L during the on cycle.    Buck converters like these - ie. step down, are rather more benign as teh current through the output  L is essentially continuous so current spikes aren't so big.   

Lots of small low EST caps are better than one big one.

Just had a look at the ON Semiconductors data sheet. It recommends 100u on the input and 220-470u on the output. Did you add any small 10n caps to stop any HF on the output?

 

I am using one to power a Rubiduim 10MHz reference at 15V from a computer 19V PSU. I have included lots of L and C on the input as I reckoned the computer PSU would be quite noisy.

 

I will change the input and output caps for some Lo ESR types at work tomorrow, and add some L on the output of the module.

 

Thanks for your comments. Rich

I stuck more C on the output and more C on the input.   They don't have enough input or output C even according to the data sheet recommendations.   Some input and output L and further RF decoupling  might help if you get radiated interference issues, but that wasn't a problem here.

I saw that Andy G4JNT used one of these modules in a recent project but said they needed  a few mods to improve the performance. Looking on the ’net suggests an additional coil and capacitor low pass filter on the output.
