I am having trouble getting a signal out of the AD9544/PCBZ board. I successfully updated the EEPROM so that the ACE software recognizes the unit as a AD9544 instead of a AD9545 and have been able to successfully lock everything; see image:
But when I probe the outputs I get nothing, and I am not sure why. From the user guide they are supposed to be single-end AC coupled correct? '10 ac-coupled single-ended (differential signal recombined via a balun) output SMA connectors, with user-configurable output termination for HCSL, CML, or LVDS-compatible (default)' In ACE I configured OUT0A to be HCSL, 15 mA, SE, however I get noting out on the scope.
Also, some other things to note... In the DPLL0, APLL0, and System Clock PLL, the DPD, PFD, and PFD all have 'Output Signal = 0 Hz', respectively. Not sure if that is a clue.
It is likely there is some setting that I am missing and hopefully someone here can help point it out to me. I appreciate the support.
