AD9361 Tx FWD and REV Power Monitoring using only Tx mode

Hi,

We are planning to use AD9361 for only single channel TX mode and using TX1 alone and we are not using RX1 & RX2 ports.

We want to monitor the Transmitter final output FWD and REV powers using coupler and fed to TX_MON1 & TX_MON2 respectively.

1. Is it possible use both TX_MON1 & TX_MON2 by using only one Transmitter TX1 without enabling TX2?

2. Is it possible to monitor both TX_MON1 & TX_MON2 during Transmission? Our transmission is burst mode transmission not continuous mode.

Please confirm AD9361 will meet our requirement?

Regards,

Sugumar K

    It should be possible to use TXMON1 and TXMON2  with TX1. You can test using our latest drivers and check the same. Hope you are not disabling RX2 path as TX monitor uses RX path.

    It should be possible. Make sure that there is some offset between TX and RX LO.
