I am building a mmWave system evaluation platform. I will be using V|E-band transceivers with analog BB/IF differential IQ ports interfacing the DAC/ADC boards. In order to generate and capture 1 to 2 GHz bandwidth signals (i.e. from Matlab in the early project stages) I was planning to use the following TI evaluation boards configuration:
- 2x TSW14J56EVM + 2x ADC12J4000EVM (Each I and Q RX path includes a single-channel multi-GSPS ADC solution, since I am not aware that there is any TI FMC multi-channel multi-GSPS ADC solution compatible with the TSW_EVM pattern generation/data capture boards).
Since it is important for the I and Q RX paths to be properly synchronized and triggered I was thinking of using the configuration shown in the High Speed TI design “Synchronizing Multiple JESD204B Analog to Digital Converters for Emitter Position Location” (ACTIVE TIDA-00467).
Will the previous synchronization configuration work for GHz-bandwidth RX signals like those used in mmWave communications?
Thank you very much for your help and BR.
