I am trying to interface the AD9361 transceiver and I have seen that its digital data interface is composed by 12 pins for input and another 12 pins for output data. What I do not know is what type of data it has to receive. I am sending QPSK data so I was thinking about sending I and Q signals composed by 12 bit samples. Is this right or what data format do I have to send?
Another doubt is whether or not the transceiver has any dedicated circuitry to synchronize with the incoming modulated signal or it has to be done by software.
Also, is there any more detailed datasheet that explains more deeply what each internal block does?
