I'm using the AD9739 DAC device and according to its datasheet, the best way to
drive its clock is by using the ADCLK914 (HVDS) driver. Can I use the ADF4350
to drive the ADCLK914? What is the best way to interface between the RF output
of the ADF4350 and the digital input of the ADCLK914


One can drive the AD9739 directly from the ADF4350 since it has the same CML
output structure as the ADCLK914 and provides a "square-wave" like output with
sufficient voltage swing when output bias is set to 5.5 dbm output power.
