Trigger out and In using ZC706 and FMCOMMS3

Category: Hardware
Product Number: ZC706 and FMCOMMS3
Software Version: Vivado 2015.4 and matlab R2021a


I am trying to build a transceiver including a signal generator and signal analyzer using ZC706 and FMCOMMS3. I wrote most of the codes in matlab for signal generation and signal analysis. 

What I want to do next, is that:

  • To generate a external trigger output which is an rising edge at the start time of the signal generation
  • To allow a trigger input to enable signal capture in signal analysis

The question is: 

  • For the trigger output, is there any signal that can indicate the transmission start in AD9361/FMCOMMS3?
  • For the trigger input, can I use the J57/58 in ZC706 routed to ENSM?

Thanks a lot,
