AFE7769 quad-channel RF transceiver evaluation module
The AFE7769 evaluation module (EVM) is a board used to evaluate the AFE77xx family of integrated RF transceivers. AFE77xx devices support up to four-transmit, four-receive, and two feedback channels (4T4R2F) and integrate phase-locked loops (PLLs) and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) for generation of data-converter clocks and LO, with LO frequency tunable from 600 MHz to 6 GHz.
This standard EVM incorporates RF baluns to specifically support 600 MHz to 2700 MHz. The AFE77xx device integrates eight JESD204B/C-compatible serializer/deserializer (SerDes) transceivers capable of running up to 29.5 Gbps to transmit and receive digital data through the onboard FMC connector.
AFE7769EVM includes the LMK04828 clock generator for providing reference clocks and sysref to the AFE and capture card (FPGA). The EVM works off a single 6-V input and includes complete power management. External clocking options include support for feeding the reference clock (for on-chip PLL) or the channel frequency (at 2x LO).
The design interfaces with TI pattern/capture card solutions (TSW14J56EVM and TSW14J57EVM, sold separately), as well as many FPGA development kits.
