We have purchased an FMCOMMS5 board and working on replacing with the current FMCOMMS4 boards on Kintex KC705.
As per the site AD-FMCOMMS5-EBZ Hardware [Analog Devices Wiki] it is mentioned that the ADF5355 chip may not function correctly unless we do the workaround as suggested.
But it is observed that in the board we received, this chip itself is not populated! Is this expected or could it be due to some mistake?
What could be the effects due to this? Please suggest.
