The SPI tune command interface is a standard SPI interface with Mode = 0 (CPOL = 0, CPHA = 0). Thereare always 8 data bits. Any bits that do not affect the frequency offset of thefilter should always be set to 0. The interface receives the data MSB first.

3.6 Timing Requirements

3.6.1 SPI Timing

The SPI tine command interface is a standard SPI interface with Mode = 0 (CPOL = 0, CPHA = 0). There are always 8 data bits. Any bits that do not affect the frequency offset of the filter should always be set to 0. The interface receives the data most significant bit first.

3.6.2 Parallel Interface Timing

The Parallel tune command interface is an 8-bit synchronous parallel interface. There are always 8 data bits. Any bits that do not affect the frequency offset of the filter should always be set to 0. A7 is the MSB and A0 is the LSB.

6.0 Tune Time

Tune times include internal processing of the tune command data and the 90% settled RF amplitude response time of the filter. This time excludes the time required to load the tune command into the filter. Low level signal measurements were utilized to show the receive tune time that can be expected. In addition, RF power in excess of +25 dBm is considered to be "hot switching" of the filter. It is recommended that RF is less than +20 dBm during a tune event. All of the tune times listed in Table 9. Typical RF Tune Times, were taken with the input RF power set to +10 dBm.

7.0 Application Information

7.1 Application Circuits

MINI-SMT 24

Note: For the standard product configuration, do not connect Pin 17. In an optional product configuration that must be specified when ordering, the filter may have its internal high voltage bias supply circuit disabled, and pin 17 provides input connection for an external +100V bias supply. This optional configuration is shown in the reference schematic, above.

MINI-SMT 25

Note: The standard configuration with pin 17 as a No Connect is shown in the serial control schematic above.
