Now, I am using HMC830 to generate a 2.4GHz clock signal to clock a high speed DAC:AD9129, As there is no description about the HMC830 differential output, Can the hmc830 output directly link to ad9129?
The connection requires DC block capacitors and an external 100 Ohm differential termination resistor because the AD9129 input Z is 10 kOhms. See page 50 in the AD9129 datasheet.
Output power levels from the HMC830 are shown in Figures 9 & 10 on page 6 of the HMC830 datasheet. These power levels are as observed on each output leg into a 50 Ohm termination. From this, you can calculate the effective differential peak-to-peak output voltage into a 100 Ohm termination. The output power level of the HMC830 can be adjusted under software register control (4 programmable levels).
