HMC Dualchip synthesizer software V1030

I want to use the chip HMC983LP5E Fractional Divider as a Stand-Alone Part,and I want to use the software of HMC Dualchip synthesizer software V1030 to  control and monitor this chip. but when I installed and opened this software,I  found that I had to select  HMC983LP5E for divider  and HMC984 for PFD in the GUI interface to get to the next step. So,I wonder if the software of HMC Dualchip synthesizer software V1030 could just  be used for HMC983LP5E?

there is  another question for using this software .A USB interface Board will be used for connecting the chip and the PC. But I don't know where to buy it if I don't buy the total development kits. Is this  USB interface Board coutumed universial or specific? I search the website and find the USB-SDP-CABLEZ .could  this be used for the  USB interface Board in connecting the chip and PC?

    The Dualchip synthesizer software requires both HMC983 and HMC984 on the SPI bus.   You will need to develop your own software to control just the HMC983.  The USB interface board (p/n HMC6356) can be ordered as a stand alone product.   This board performs a similar function to the USB-SDP-CABLEZ cable (USB to SPI conversion) but the two are not compatible due to the different pinouts on the SPI connector.
