One mode is conversion from and/or to single-ended or complex intermediate frequency (IF) signals, which then pass through an on-chip 90° IF hybrid, known as IF mode. The other mode is a direct conversion from and/or to differential baseband in-phase/quadrature (I/Q) inputs and outputs, known as baseband mode. The I/Q baseband output common-mode voltage is programmable between 0.7 V and 1.5 V. Read more
