Please note that the use of signed magnitude data for the dynamic slicer is allowed in both MSB and LSB formats. However, two’s complement data can only be used when the data is at the LSB. Additionally, the dynamic slicer can be used in 12-bit operation modes. The user can refer to ‘Dynamic Slicer Bit Location’ section in the ADRV9026 Dynamic Slicer user guide available on RadioVerse for additional details.
Note that each segment is transmitted on both I and Q data samples. Also, since the dynamic slicer packet is transmitted over multiple samples, sometime is taken to transmit the entire word. In the case above, the data rate is 245.76 MSPS. This data rate requires 114 ns to transmit the entire dynamic slicer packet.
As this is hardware restriction we cannot change this transmission such that zeroes are transmitted first followed by slicer bits. The user is expected to use this format and extract the slicer bits accordingly.
