AD9517 LVPECL output interface to a fanout buffer

Hello everyone:


I am using one AD9517-0 LVPECL output to drive a fanout buffer to convert the signal to two LDVS signals.

In the AD9517-0 datasheet I can see this figure to interface LVPECL stages:



On the other hand, in the datasheet of the fanout buffer, I can see this other configuration:



My dessign follows the AD recomendation (first schematic) and incorporates R1 to R4 of the second schematic.



Question: Should I keep the 100 Ohn resistor at the imput of the receiver (as proposed in the AD schematic)?


Thanks in advance
