AD8342 Single-Ended Output


Hi,

I need a single-ended 50 ohm IF output from AD8342. The IF impedance of AD8342 is 10K ohm.

After IF stage I have 50-ohm matched RF amplifier and rest of the system is also matched to 50-ohm impedance.

May I just use 2:1 impedance ratio transformer so that reflected impedance to the IF ports becomes 100 ohm.

Or,

Should I place a shunt 100 ohm resistor across IF ports and then use a center-tapped 2:1 transformer ?

Thank you.
