we understand from the device literature that adrv9008-1/2 support fast frequency hopping. Please indicate if if the chip will be performing calibrations whenever the frequency is changed.If so, how much time it takes.
It depends on the performance levels that you are looking for and the hop frequencies.
For ADRV9009 Typical hop time will be ~ 70uSec . (VCO Calibration + lock time) , You can run tracking calibrations for QEC and LOL during hopping. With this you should achieve close to -60dBc for image and LoL.
