Would like to know if EVAL-TPG-ZYNQ3 and the software libraries from ADI support both ADRV9008-1W/PCBZ and ADRV9008-2W/PCB simultaneously, to develop a full-duplex communications application.
No. EVAL-TPG-ZYNQ3 has only one HPC and you can test only anyone using one Zynq3 board.
Thanks very much for the clarification.
If the Tx and Rx signal frequencies are the same (i.e. it is not an “FDD” scenario) can we use ADRV9009 in full duplex mode (i.e. both Tx and Rx paths working together)? I guess my colleague saw a confirmation to that effect in your FAQ section, just wanted to reconfirm.
Yes you can. One point to note is RX and ORx share same digital path internally.
ORx path is required to run TX tracking calibrations. So you need to time share Orx and Rx to run.
If you are continuously using RX , Tx tracking cals cannot be run.
Thanks. Then it brings us, hopefully, to the last question. How often do we need to run the tracking calibration in ADRV9009 and how long does each instance last? For e.g. I believe AD9371 needs an overall time duration of 400ms (in multiples of 800µs slots) for calibration, every 2s (almost 1/5th of the available time).
