LTC6953 as clock divider

I use ltc6953,Config all channel for Mode 0,Srqen set 0,ddely adely also set 0,as datasheet it is free running,only set divider,but no outputs,register 0xb set 0,during config ltc6953,I set sd_ to be 1 all,does it need to config sync operation?anyone can give me a free running config for me,thanks.

And register 0 has field vcook and vcook_,when sd_ set 1,vcook is 1,vcook_ is 0,otherwise vcook is 0,vcook_ is 1;when sd_ is 1,even if no signal in ltc6953's clk in port,vcook also is 1,what means does field vcook?

    I've attached some registers settings for a free running config.  I set all the dividers to two.  The txt file is a list of registers and settings.  The .zip file includes the LTC6952Wizard setup file that can be used with the eval board.  If you are using the eval board and the LTC6952Wizard, you can output all your GUI settings to a text file by selecting File-->Export Register Values.  Our you can use the LTC6952Wizard in simulation mode (without an eval board) to create your register file that way.  You can download the LTC6952Wizard from the LTC6953 product page (https://www.analog.com/media/en/evaluation-boards-kits/evaluation-software/LTC6952_LTC6953_Wizard_Eval_SW.zip )

    VCOOK = 1 when an input signal is applied to the IN+/- pins.  VCOOK = 0 when there is not an input signal applied.  The !VCOOK will display the opposite.  For whatever reason, VCOOK stands for VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) is OK.  In a lot of cases VCOs are attached to the input of our parts, but any input signal will be fine.  That really should be a INOK bit (input ok).
