My setup is as folows:
AD9172 Eval board and ADS7-V2EB7
The DAC board has been modified so a external clk can be provided directly to the DAC.
I have attached the vector and cso file I am using.
In DPG I have JESD Mode 8 in dual link selected.
My question is, why do the link 0 and link 1 never stabilize?
For some reason I cannot upload files. Here is a link: https://gofile.io/?c=7gxrcz
For the external clock, the on-board HMC7044 ref clock must be synced with the external clock source. otherwise, the link isn't stable.
Thank you for your reply. This was the problem.
