Evaluation Board for the AD5930 Frequency
Sweep/Burst Waveform Generator
EVAL-AD5930EB
FEATURES
AD5930 DEVICE DESCRIPTION
Full-featured evaluation board for the AD5930
USB cable for PC connection
Can be powered entirely from USB port
Various linking options
PC software for control of the AD5930
On-board patchwork area
The AD5930 is a waveform generator that allows a user to
generate synthesized analog or digital frequency-stepped
waveforms. Because frequency profiles are preprogrammed,
continuous write cycles are eliminated, which frees up valuable
DSP/μcontroller resources. Waveforms start from a known
phase and increment phase continuously allowing phase shifts
to be easily determined. The part can be operated with clock
frequencies up to 50 MHz.
EVALUATION BOARD DESCRIPTION
This data sheet describes the evaluation board for the AD5930
programmable frequency sweep and burst waveform generator.
The evaluation board interfaces to the USB port of a PC. It is
possible to power the entire board off the USB port. Software is
available with the evaluation board, which allows the user to
easily program the AD5930.
Complete specifications for the AD5930 are available in the
AD5930 data sheet available from Analog Devices, Inc., and
should be consulted in conjunction with this data sheet when
using the evaluation board.
The AD5930 evaluation board includes a 50 MHz oscillator that
provides the MCLK for the AD5930. The user can remove this
oscillator, if required, and drive the AD5930 with a different clock
oscillator or an external clock source via a BNC connector.

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
POWER SUPPLIES
The AD5930 device has two analog power supply inputs: AVDD
(Analog VDD) and AGND (Analog GND). There are also two
digital supplies on the part, DVDD (Digital VDD) and DGND
(Digital GND). Both of these supplies are independent of each
other and can be powered from 2.3 V to 5.5 V.
As well as supplying the digital supply for the AD5930, DVDD
is used to provide the supply for the 50 MHz oscillator and the
ADG774 quad 2:1 mux.
There are two options available to power the AD5930
evaluation board:
•
The USB port of a computer
•
A power supply
The default option for powering the board is from the USB port
(LK1 and LK8 are in Position B). Alternatively, 2-pin terminal
blocks are available to the user for use with an external power
supply.
The 5 V from the USB port is regulated to 3.3 V, which provides
power for the CY7C68013 USB controller and related USB
circuitry. The USB port also provides the GND connections for
the board.
When LK1 is in Position B, DVDD is supplied with 3.3 V from
the regulator. When LK8 is in Position B, AVDD is powered
from DVDD through ferrite bead L1 (600 Ω @ 100 MHz).
When LK1 and LK8 are in Position A, the terminal blocks are
used to provide power to the board. Note that if you need to
operate the part at a different supply than up to 3.3 V, the
terminal blocks should be used. In addition, to abide by the
maximum ratings of the AD5930, the board should be used as a
standalone board if operating at a voltage less than 3 V.
Therefore, SCLK, SDATA, FSYNC, CTRL, INTERRUPT, and
STANDBY must be externally supplied by the user.
DGND and AGND are connected under the AD5930.
Therefore, it is recommended not to connect AGND and
DGND elsewhere in the system. AVDD and DVDD are
decoupled to the relevant ground plane using 10 μF and 0.1 μF
ceramic capacitors at their source and again at the AD5930.

EVALUATION BOARD SOFTWARE
The AD5930EB evaluation kit is shipped with a CD-ROM that
includes self-installing software. The PC is connected to the
evaluation board using the supplied cable. The evaluation
software should be installed before connecting the evaluation
board to the PC’s USB port. This ensures that the evaluation
board is correctly recognized when connected to the PC.
The software is compatible with Windows® 2000 and Windows XP.
INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE
To install the software:
Start the Windows operating system and insert the CD.
The installation software should launch automatically. If it
does not, use Windows Explorer to locate the file setup.exe
on the CD. Double-click this file to start the installation
procedure.
2.
At the prompt, select a destination directory. By default,
this is C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\AD5930.
Once the directory is selected, the installation procedure
copies the files into the relevant directories on the hard
drive. The installation program creates a program group
called Analog Devices with subgroup AD5930 in the Start
menu of the taskbar.
3.
Once the installation procedure is complete, power up the
AD5930 evaluation board as described in the Hardware
Description section. Then, connect it to the USB port of
the PC using the supplied cable.
4.
Double-click the AD5930 icon to start the program. The
evaluation board is then automatically detected.

Figure 2. First Window in Wizard
Figure 2 displays the first window in the wizard. The first series
of questions relate to the required write to the control register.
Follow the wizard prompts by selecting the desired answers and
click Next to proceed to the next screen. The text box labeled
Control register write is a read-only text box and cannot be
changed. It is intended to show the effect your selections have
on the control register write.
Both continuous and burst modes of operation are offered with
the evaluation board. In addition, both internal and external
options for frequency incrementing are offered. More details on
all of these options can be found in the AD5930 data sheet.
To launch the software, click Start > All Programs > Analog
Devices > AD5930 > AD5930 Evaluation Software. The
software for the AD5930 board is presented in wizard format.
Note that no download of data to the evaluation board takes
place until you click the Write to Part command button in the
last screen (see Figure 6). This means that it is possible to use
the software to help calculate the required write sequence
without having the board attached to the computer.
05723-003
USING THE SOFTWARE
Figure 3. Internal/External Increment Options
After completing the control register write section, you are
required to enter the frequency of MCLK. This value is then
used to calculate all frequency and time values throughout the
software.
Rev. 0 | Page 5 of 12
EVAL-AD5930EB
The final screen (Figure 6) displays the required write sequence
in hexadecimal, which is calculated based on the responses of
the earlier questions. Now click Write to Part, which is the first
communication with the board. This write programs the AD5930
registers. However, it is necessary to click Pulse CTRL Pin in
order to start the frequency sweep.
05723-004
05723-006
The next steps in the wizard require you to enter the values for
the numeric registers: the start frequency (FSTART), frequency
increments (Δf), number of increments (NINCR), time interval
(TINT), and burst interval (TBURST). Figure 4 shows the first screen
of this wizard where FSTART, Δf, and NINCR are entered. This can
be done by entering the hexadecimal value directly or by entering
the values in MHz (the software then calculates the corresponding
hexadecimal value). Click Next to enter TINT and TBURST.

05723-005
The SYNC and MSB outputs are also available from the
AD5930 evaluation board. The MSB output can be enabled in
the first window of the wizard, while both options for the
SYNCOP are available, as shown in Figure 5.

ESD CAUTION
ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive device. Electrostatic charges as high as 4000 V readily accumulate on
the human body and test equipment and can discharge without detection. Although this product features
proprietary ESD protection circuitry, permanent damage may occur on devices subjected to high energy
electrostatic discharges. Therefore, proper ESD precautions are recommended to avoid performance degradation or loss of functionality.
