AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ: reference design, external clock and RF power

Question asked by Imin on Mar 26, 2016

I'm interested to use 1 or 2 AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ card to make MIMO 2x2 or 4x4. FPGA board is KC705.

Q1. If 2 AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ cards are plugged into KC705 and driven by same external clock, will this setup work for MIMO 4x4? or I have to use   AD-FMCOMMS5-EBZ to make MIMO 4x4?

Q2. The datasheet says the max TX power is 7dBm at 5GHz. What can be dowe to increase it to 23dBm?

Q3. Please confirm: External clock goes to J105 and is selected by a MUX.

Q4. Please point to the link to the reference design of AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ. is there a reference design for HDL only (no CPU/LINUX) for AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ on KC705 FPGA board.

Thanks a lot
