AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ Transmiter output waveform

I am using AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ and ZC706 with example FPGA design. when testing transmitter of AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ with the LINUX "ADI IIO Oscilloscope" software, it is working but the TX1A output waveform captured from a scope looks not so correct.


the setting is as following:


since the transmitter TX LO is set to 160Mhz, and the "DAC Buffer Setting" is loaded from an example file "10.txt", so the output should be a 160MHz sine wave, but it looks it is NOT.


the freq is correct, but the waveform looks is chopped from since wave or in wrong polarity or wrong format, why?


I tried to change the setting of filters and tried I tried FDD and TDD, but there is no difference.
