AD9164_Max output frequency (CW 7.5GHz) setting

Dear team,

Our customer is reviewing the AD9164 and will purchade the AD9164FMCC-EVB to verify the performance.

She is aking for some questions.

1. Could we know how to configure for output frequency CW 7.5GHz? 

2. Is it mandatory to use 6GHz Wenzel for CLKIN to output CW 7.5GHz frequency?

3. Can we used the 100MHz reference frequency for output CW 7.5GHz frequency?

4. Is the ADS7-V2EBZ pattern generator mandatory for the AD9164FMCC-EVB? she need only CW signal.

We are looking foward to your advice.

Thank you.

Josh.

  • CW 7.5 GHz output can be obtained with NCO only mode,  either with FIR85 enabled or in mix mode. DDR(FIR85) will be easier to filter but it will consume more power. Due to higher roll off from AD9164 we recommend using AD9166 for 7.5 GHz operation 

    6GHz clock is recommended. ADS7 is not required for NCO only mode. JESD lanes are internally terminated so you can leave them floating.
