    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Evaluation board ADF4360-7 - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi all,

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.
