We have a broadband communication system working in 2.3-2.4 GHz range with AD9352 in the front end. Since AD9352 has a narrow band and is close to obsolence, we decided to migrate to AD9361. I am looking for the following clarifications.
1) Can we straight away replace ad9352 with AD9361 in the design, without too many changes in the Baseband hardware ?
2) AD9361 provides much more options than AD9352, So by configuring AD9361 in DDR mode, and following the signal map below
SYNCVALID TXFRAME / RXFRAME in LEVEL Mode
Can we acheive the exact funcitonality ? (assuming SPI is taken care of)
Please correct me if I wrongly understood or forgot anything.
