I need to build a fine tunable local oscillator.
- Output frequency range: 10GHz to 12GHz
- Channel spacing: 1kHz
I would need help to select the appropriate PLL, and if there is an evaluation board that can implement my LO with limited change, that would be perfect.
From what I read, I need a fractional PLL. The EV-ADF41513SD2Z evaluation board seems to implement what I need. Do I need to make any hardware change on that board to reach that channel spacing at those frequencies?
Is there a more obvious choice of evaluation board for my requirements?
Thank you very much.
