HMC832A RF output interface

Question asked by cosmolittle on Aug 9, 2018

I want to use the HMC832A in a new product where the output drives an external divider to generate quadrature outputs. What is the best way to interface the output to CMOS logic running off 3.3V? The maximum output frequency of the HMC832A will be 200MHz.

    Is the RF output similar to an ECL output? Or LVDS?  Should I use the differential outputs with a balun?

 

If possible please supply the schematic of the RF output

 

best regards
