I would like to use the AD9517-3 with a 10MHz input clock, tune the VCO to 2.0GHz and drive the LVPECL outputs at 2.0GHz.
I realize that the datasheet limits the LVPECL to 1.6GHz when the output is created from the VCO. However, is this something
that is still do-able? (i.e. with reduced output amplitude or perhaps by hand-selecting parts)
Also, I could not find a clock generator chip that would allow LVPECL outputs to get up to 2.0GHz when running the those
outputs from an internal PLL/VCO. Are there any devices in the works that anyone knows of that could have that capability?
