One of the things we are interested in is using each AD9361's two Rx channels separately for two different bands. I understand that both the Rx chains's mixers are supplied by the same Rx LO signal. Is it advisable to make one of the chains superheterodyne by adding mixers and filters external to the RFIC and keep the signal within the ADC's sampling range? What does such a design entail?
Thank you for your time!
