I am using ADF4360-8 in one of my designs, and I am finding it difficult to meet the -9dBm output power specs. As I am only using one of the outputs, I have terminated the other one, but given that I can not get the desired power I think maybe I misinterpreted your guidance. So, in order to get everything right, my question is the following:
- As I only intend to use one of the outputs, which configuration provides the higher output power on that output? Is it better to terminate one of them and use the other, or to combine them two using a balun?
Thanks in advance for your answer.
