2.1. Parallel Loopback Design Examples

The parallel loopback design examples demonstrate simplex and duplex channel modes with and without external VCXO.
Note: For parallel loopback duplex designs, do not share the TX PLL reference clock with the RX transceiver reference clock. The design logic tunes the TX PLL clock to match the RX recovered clock frequency.
