  • Hi,  Sorry just back from the holiday break.  It looks like that supply is better than the previous supply but is still inducing spurious content.  The ppd3003 specs indicate 3mvpp ripple.  However, the LT3045, or LT3042 can suppress supply ripple 50 to 100dB depending on the frequency offset.  This would put the supply ripple down to the single digit uVpp range (1000x improvement), which would improve the spurious content great.
