I have heard DDS is an alternative to Phase Locked Loops (PLLs) for frequency synthesis, but I am not familiar with Direct Digital Synthesis Technology.  Does ADI offer any training or tutorial material that I can use to learn more about DDS?





Yes, ADI offers a Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) Tutorial Series.  This series consists of slide modules with an accompanying voice-over.  Links to the modules in this series are included below:

These modules are relatively high level, more mid-level depth modules may be developed depending upon the response to these.
