FMCOMMS1 GSM Sample Rates

Hi all,


Just wondering if anyone out there has configured this device to work for GSM sample rates.  The default ADC clock is set to 245.76MHz which has an irrational relationship to the GSM symbol rate of 270.8333333' KHz.    A sample rate of 260MHz would be better but this is beyond the ADC9643 250MHz limit. 


I suppose a value of 36*6.5MHz or 234MHz might work.    At this stage I don't know if 234MHz can be synthesized using the AD9523-1.


so we have the following potential decimation / interpolation values


234MHz/30 = 7.8MHz *10 = 78MHz / 12 = 6.5MHz


Note the 6.5MHz needs to be decimated by 6 to give 1.0833333'MHz which is 4 times the GSM symbol rate.


I note the Wiki mentions "

." An anti-alias filter is used to remove harmonics and other out of band signals before the signal is digitized with the AD9643."  Do you have details for this filter as we need to determine if it will have sufficient image rejection at the lower sample rate.
