Can the HMC767LP6CE evaluation board generate a triangular modulation triggered
by an external trigger?

 

According to our HMC767LP6CE Engineer, this device should be able to perform
triggered sweeps using an external trigger on the eval board. Here are the
steps to do this:
1)Remove jumper J3 on eval board and connect trigger source to the side that is
tied to pin 36 on HMC767LP6CE.
2) Set REG06[9] to enable EXT. TRIGGER (vs via SPI interface).
3) Setup ramp – refer to pages 17-21 in attached operating guide.
4) Trigger will need to go to logic high to start the ramp(then logic low to be
ready for next trigger event).
5) Ramp should take place. Trigger again to repeat
