The EV9830 Evaluation Kit allows evaluation of the CMX983 Baseband
Interface for Digital Radio.
For evaluation of the Fractional-N synthesisers, a 900MHz VCO is
fitted with connections to synthesiser 1 and a 2.1GHz VCO is fitted
with connections to synthesiser 2. Test pads are also provided for
connection to an external VCO.
An instrumentation interface with single-ended signal connections
to differential baseband I/Q connections on the CMX983 is provided
to allow easy connection of proprietary test equipment.
The board also incorporates all of the necessary power supply
regulation facilities for operation from a dual +/6Vsupply.
The board is fitted with a C-BUS connector allowing the EV9830 to
be operated by connection to either of the two C-BUS ports on a CML
PE0003 interface card used with the associated PC GUI software. A
separate ‘host’ header is provided with both C-BUS and fast serial
Design Support Information
Q. The EV9830 works intermittently with a PE0003 kit. Is there a
A. The EV9830 and PE0003 has a hardware reset that should be
toggled by the host. This pin is not accessible to the PE0003 so we
recommend that C11 is replaced to extend the time that the hardware
reset is held low during power up. Guidance for the location and
replacement of C11 is given in the latest EV9830 User Manual. This
replacement is only required on early EV9830 kits.
