     Dear All


I am using AD9789 interfaced with AD9516.

Schematic is almost similar to Evaluation Board AD9789-EBZ


We are using Single Channel, 32 bit Access, 16 Bit Data,  Complex mode ,



Fdac frequency is  2.340Ghz

Centre Frequency is 767.143Mhz



Calculated FTW is 0x3E7F4D

Calculated BPF centre Frequency (FC)  is 0x53E3


SUM SCALE is 0x1d

input Scalar is 0x40

Ch 0 Gain register  0xC5



Desired signal Amplitude is very high as we expected.

however, there are spurious signal comming at multiple of 16Mhz from  centre frequency,

We checked Parity and Satuaration counter but there was no issue there.


We are like stuck for 1 month .


Any ideas, suggestion are welcome.
