Jumper Setting Functions Evaluate: MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 Evaluation Kits The disks included with the MAX3514/MAX3516/ MAX3517 EV kits contain four files each. Table 2 lists these files and their appropriate usage. If your PC has Windows 95/98 installed, run MAX3514.EXE. The software can also be found on the Maxim website. Gain Adjustment The valid gain code ranges from 0 to 127 (decimal). The nominal change in gain is 0.5dB per gain code. Gain codes are set exclusively by programming the SDI. Refer to the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 data sheet for details. High Power and Low Noise High-power (HP) mode and low-noise (LN) mode may only be controlled via the PC interface. Manual control of the jumpers for the EV kits’ boards is not possible. For DOCSIS applications, HP mode should be used for output levels above 42dBmV. This corresponds to gain code 87. LN mode should be used below this output level. This corresponds to gain code 115. A transition from HP mode, gain code 87, to LN mode, gain code 117, will result in a -1dB step. Shutdown and Transmit Enable Jumpers JU1 through JU4 determine how the shutdown and transmit-enable features are controlled. Pin 2 of JU2 and pin 2 of JU4 are connected directly to the device. If an external source (such as a modulator chip or microprocessor) is used to control these features, make the connections to pin 2 of JU2 and pin 2 of JU4. Pads are provided on the board (R18 and R19, respectively) for placement of termination resistors, if needed. If manual control of shutdown and transmit enable is desired, shunt pins 2 and 3 of jumper JU1 and pins 2 and 3 of jumper JU3. This will allow SHDN and TXEN to be controlled by JU2 and JU4, respectively. JU2 and JU4 are used to place either VCC or ground at SHDN or TXEN. Pin 3 of JU2 and pin 3 of JU4 are ground, and pin 1 is VCC. To control the SHDN and TXEN features using the software, shunt pin 1 and pin 2 of JU1 and JU3. Manual Control of Serial Data Interface If using a source other than a PC to drive the serial data interface of the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 EV kits (such as a digital pattern generator or microprocessor), remove the shunts on jumpers JU5, JU6, and JU7. Access to the serial data interface is available through these jumpers. Termination pads are provided (R2, R3, R4). Solder an appropriate resistor to these pads, if desired. Refer to the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 data sheet for a description of the serial data interface. 4 To control the SDI using the software, shunt pin 1 and pin 2 of JU5, JU6, and JU7. Input Circuit The input circuits of the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 EV kits are configured with a 1:1 transformer (T1) and a 49.9Ω input resistor. This allows the input to be driven with single-ended 50Ω test equipment. The transformer (T1) is used to generate a differential signal, as rated performance is specified with a differential input drive (typically from a differential lowpass filter). If the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 are to be driven single ended, the input transformer (T1) must be removed and the undriven input connected to ground through a 0.1µF blocking capacitor. Output Circuit The MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 have differential outputs. This architecture aids in suppressing secondorder distortion (harmonics). To convert to a singleended output, a 2:1 voltage ratio transformer (T2) is used. Since most test equipment is supplied with a 50Ω termination impedance, a minimum-loss pad is provided on the output of the transformer to increase the load impedance to a nominal 75Ω. This places the proper load on the device, but will also reduce the measured output voltage level by 7.5dB. It is essential to consider this when making any measurements with the EV kit; 7.5dB must be added to all measurements of voltage gain and output voltage level (including noise) to arrive at the correct value for a 75Ω system. Use 75Ω test equipment, if available, and take the following steps: 1) Remove the 50Ω output SMA connector and replace it with a 75Ω connector. 2) Remove R5 and replace it with a 0Ω resistor or some other type of shunt. 3) Remove R21. 4) Be sure to use a 75Ω cable. Analysis Harmonic Distortion A filter will be needed to reject the harmonics generated by the signal source. For this example, a lowpass filter with approximately a 25MHz to 35MHz cutoff frequency will be required. This filter will need to reject at least 20dB of signal at 40MHz. Set the 50Ω signal source for 20MHz and -13dBm. Adjust the amplitude to account for the insertion loss in the filter. Verify with the spectrum analyzer that the second and third harmonics generated by the source are suppressed by at least 70dBc. _______________________________________________________________________________________ MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 Evaluation Kits Connect a spectrum analyzer to OUTPUT. Set the center frequency for 40MHz and the span for 50MHz or more. Adjust the reference level so that the fundamental (20MHz tone) is within 10dB to 20dB of the reference level. If the fundamental is less than 10dB below the reference level, the harmonic distortion of the spectrum analyzer may prevent accurate measurement of the distortion. Set the gain code to 125, D7 = 1 (approximately 27dB of gain). Measure the level of the fundamental, second, and third harmonics on the spectrum analyzer. These readings have units of dBm. To convert from dBm to dBmV in a 50Ω system, use the following equation: X (dBmV) = Y(dBm) + 47dB (50Ω system) Add 7.5dB to this value to account for the attenuation of the minimum-loss pad, in dBmV, for a 75Ω load. The gain can now be calculated in dB, and the harmonic distortion can be calculated in dBc. Switching Transients To measure the transmit-enable and transmit-disable transients, the TXEN pin will be driven from an external source. No input signal is applied, and the output is viewed on an oscilloscope. Connect OUTPUT to the oscilloscope’s 50Ω input. Set the scope’s time base to 5µs/div and the vertical scale to 5mV/div. Set the pulse generator as follows: • Amplitude: 5V • Duty cycle: 50% • Rise/fall-time: 100ns • Pulse width: 25µs • Offset: 2.5V Output Noise To measure output noise, a spectrum analyzer is used. A postamplifier with less than 10dB noise figure and greater than 40dB gain within the band of interest is needed. With the power supply off, place a 50Ω termination on the input of the EV kit. Turn on the powers supply to the MAX3514/MAX3516/ MAX3517 EV kits. Using the software, set the device to transmit mode with a gain code of 119, D7 = 1 (approximately 24dB of gain, MAX3514). Connect the output of the postamplifier to the spectrum analyzer and the input to OUTPUT on the EV kit. Set the spectrum analyzer as follows: • Center frequency: 35MHz • Span: 60MHz • Reference: -50dBm • Scale: 10dB/div • IF bandwidth: 1kHz Power up the postamplifier. If the spectrum analyzer being used has a noise marker function, enable it. The output noise can now be read directly from the spectrum analyzer. Move this marker to 42MHz. Read the value of the noise density from the spectrum analyzer. This noise value is a combination of the output noise of the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517, the gain of the postamplifier, and the noise figure of the postamplifier. With the specified noise figure of 10dB, the noise contribution of the postamplifier may be ignored. The minimum-loss pad reduces the actual measured value by 7.5dB. Use the following equation to arrive at the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517s’ output noise in a 160kHz bandwidth: VNOISE = PNOISE + 47dB + 7.5dB + 10 ✕ log (160,000) - GAMP where: Take care not to drive the MAX3514/MAX3516/ MAX3517 TXEN pin below 0 or above +5V. Turn on the power supply. Remove the shunt from jumper JU3 (TXEN), and connect the output of the pulse generator to pin 2 of this jumper. Trigger the oscilloscope from the pulse generator using a convenient method. Set the gain code to 125, D7 = 1. A rising- and falling-edge transient should appear on the scope’s CRT. The amplitude of this transient should be less than 40mVp-p. Multiply the value of the measured transient by 2.37 to account for the presence of the minimum-loss pad. The gain may now be changed to show the output transient’s dependence on gain. VNOISE = MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 output noise in dBmV measured in a 160kHz bandwidth PNOISE = Noise density in dBm/Hz read from the spectrum analyzer GAMP = Gain of the postamplifier in dB If the spectrum analyzer being used does not have a noise marker function, corrections must be made to account for the IF bandwidth used to make the measurement. Consult the user’s manual for your spectrum analyzer for details. Once the correction is made, the value read from the spectrum analyzer can be converted to a noise density (dBm/Hz), and the above formula can be used. _______________________________________________________________________________________ 5 Evaluate: MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 Connect the filter between INPUT of the EV kit and the output of the signal source, making sure the proper terminations are being used for this particular filter. Evaluate: MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 Evaluation Kits Noise can now be measured at various gains. Output noise in transmit-disable mode is insignificant. Component Suppliers SUPPLIER AVX M/A-COM Murata TOKO Layout Considerations The MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 evaluation board can serve as a guide for your board layout. Particular attention should be paid to thermal design and to the output network. The MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 package exposed paddle (EP) conducts heat out of the part and also provides a low-impedance electrical connection. The EP must be attached to the PC board ground plane with a low thermal and electrical impedance contact. Ideally, this would be provided by soldering the backside package contact directly to a top metal ground plane on the PC board. Alternatively, the EP could be connected to a ground plane using an array of plated vias directly below EP.

In addition, the capacitance of this path should be kept low to minimize gain rolloff at high frequencies.
