Removing SMA Connector (Tx_Mon1_A) on AD-FMCOMMS5-EBZ

Category: Hardware
Product Number: AD9361

We are using AD-FMCOMMS5-EBZ (4 Channel, Dual AD9361) on ZCU102 Ultrascale.

However, while plugging the board into FMC Connectors, an SMA connector (Tx_Mon1_A, J101) is bumping into the Inductor on the FPGA Board.

Thus, we are unable to plug it. So, we were thinking that we should remove the SMA Connector from the Eval Board.

Do we need to add termination for Tx_Mon1_A?

We have also checked the AD9361 DataSheet and the description of the PIN says, to tie it to the ground if unused.

Kindly guide me in this regard.
