I read following post: https://ez.analog.com/wide-band-rf-transceivers/design-support-adrv9008-1-adrv9008-2-adrv9009/f/q-a/105981/two-adrv9009-eval-boards-on-zcu102
But when I am targeting two completely independent boards (or more), the boards will have it's own FPGA (multiple ZCU102 boards). How can I manage that the platforms are time and phase coherent?
Beside the suggestion from previous post ( "skip the second AD9528 and take out sysref and devclk"), what else should I do? Make an extra connection to the other FPGA boards driving the FPGA_REF_CLK and FPGA_SYSREF? But how can I solve the signals towards the AD9528? CLK_SYSREF_REQUEST and the SYSREF_CLK_IN?
I still have a few questions:
if you see issues at system level then you may need to address them accordingly. you may need to conider performance vs cost as well.
To clean up clock you may have to go with additional jitter cleaner with delay adjustment option like AD9528.
Vinod said:The MCS function needs to be called for multichip synchronization. There is a new SW release coming positively by 6th Feb, 2019 which has improved the MCS functionality. Please refer the corresponding section in user guide for details on functionality of MCS.
Filter wizard, new API, and user guide have been handed over to the web team. Should be released by next week.
