Evalboards use DAC "N" output and the datasheet uses the DAC "P" output. Which is correct?

All your eval boards for the AD9129 (AD9129-EBZ, AD9129-MIX-EBZ and
AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ connect the “N” output of the DAC to the signal which is the
opposite output to that shown in the datasheet which uses the “P” output as per
Figure 152 and 154?
Are the Evalboards(non-inverting) or the schematic correct(inverting)?


It doesn’t matter which way you hook it up, since it is going
differential-to-single-ended. We did it this way for convenience of layout. The
data sheet and the schematic are both correct implementations.
