I am working on a project where I duplicate the FMCDAQ2 eval board but adding the filters and RF pathes (RX/TX) on the same PCB.
On the FMCDAQ2, I noticed that the DAC/ADC and Clock/FMC connector are not on the same layer.
- Did you do it to improve the isolation?
- Did you glue the large bottom components (ADC/DAC)?
- 2 reflows? Then do you know a simple way to estimate if the component can fall or not regarding the paste area?
Thank you very much for your help.
