I have some problems about ADRF 6655 and ADF4360-7.
Q1. About ADRF6655 evaluation board
Q1.1 : about conversion gain
Q1.2 : about IF frequency

Q1.1
I measured ADRF6655 output signal through spectrum analyzer
But measured conversion gain is about - 6 dB in the spectrum analyzer.
(voltage conversion gain : 6 dB in datasheet)
Is this voltage conversion gain of 6 dB ? Is that correct ??
 Our measurement set-up and software set-up are shown in Page 4~7
 Could you check these pages ? I don’t know what is problem. Why is the measured
conversion gain of -6 dB ? (voltage conversion gain : 6 dB in datasheet)
Q1.2 When I measured the ADRF6655 as up-converter using internal LO frequency.
Some frequency don’t normally operate.
RF input frequency: 470~ 698 MHz our target IF frequency is 1220 MHz
But another IF frequencies occurred at some RF input frequencies.
RF: 490 MHz, LO: 1710 MHz  measured IF : 1380 MHz ( target IF: 1220 MHz)
