Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DAC3484, CDCE62005, CDCP1803, THS3217, TRF3705
1) In the EVM OSTR is generated from the CDCE62005 which is capable of generating LVPECL signals. However OSTR generated from CDCE is not connected to the DAC3484 directly but instead through a 1:3 LVPECL buffer CDCP1803. What is the reason for doing it this way?
2) How can I modify the transformer circuit (DAC output) to take out single ended DC coupled output (to be fed to an external IQ modulator that takes in single ended inputs).
Thanks for your help,
