Is AD9517 suitable to be used as sysref generator for JESD204B?

I'm working on JESD204B research, with ADI AD9250 data converter evaluation board as my development kit. I'm looking on what are the options to enable external sysref generation, and notice that although the evaluation board has a AD9517 clock generator, it does not specifically state it does provide a sysref pulse. As I try to google more, it comes to my understanding that AD9525 does generate sysref and it would be a more suitable clock generator part.


Am I right with the above? If yes, what are my options considering external sysref generation is not possible on the AD9250 board?


Appreciate your inputs and help here.
