Setting up the AD9161

Questions about the AD9161 DAC:


1. I know what the SPI clock rate is because it is in the data sheet but what is the maximum input clock rate for the AD9161?  I am running 12G data into the DAC.


2.  How many registers do I have to program in the DAC?


3.  I want the most significant bit to go in first.  I think that is the default in register 0X000.  Is this a correct assumption?


3.  I only need one SERDES lane.  I wrote my code to the 0x201 register.  The data I input is hex 20180 to use SERDES lane 7.  Is this correct?


Please respond.
