Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AFE7950
I was curious as to whether or not the matching network on both the ADC input and TX output of the AFE7950EVM is optimized across it's entire frequency band that it specifies, namely (600MHz - 12GHz for TX) and (600MHz-12GHz for RX)?
I'm trying to make the circuitry around the AFE7950 as broadband as possible. Ideally, I would like to use the values used on the evaluation board on my board as to transmit and/or receive at whichever band across 600MHz - 12GHz.
The matching network in question is to the left of the baluns T7, T8, T9, and T10 for the TX and the matching network to the right of the baluns T1,T2,T3,T4,T5, and T6 for the RX on the AFE7950EVM.
I also noticed that RXA_IN has a slightly different matching network compared to RXB_IN, why is this?
I look forward to hearing from you.
