AD9371: simultaneous & synchronous control of both Tx's and both ObsRx's

Question asked by andrew.feldman on Dec 7, 2016

I have the ADRV9371-W/PCBZ Mykonos evaluation board, which is connected to a Zynq (ZC706) FPGA board. The Zynq FPGA board is connected to my PC via ethernet, and I am using AdiCmdServerClient.dll and MATLAB to communicate with the Eval Board. Using MATLAB, I am able to do basic things such as turn the transceiver outputs ON and OFF and change the TX PLL frequency.


So here is my question: Mykonos has two Tx's and two ObsRx's. I would like to simultaneously transmit a different signal via each Tx, and simultaneously receive from both ObsRx's. Is it possible to configure the Eval Board to do this? If so, how?


To be clear, it would not be sufficient to transmit first from Tx1, and then from Tx2 - I need to be able to transmit unique signals from both Tx's simultaneously, and the two Tx's need to be synchronized. Same applies to the ObsRx's.



Any help with this is appreciated. Thanks!
