Hi,Kevin.G ,kevintompsett ,KevinL and kevin.liu,


MY project is using FPGA to control DDS via SPI .


I already sovled the problem with the communication between FPGA and DDS within the help of kevin.G , thank you again!


But there is another tough issue.


No matter in the mode of PC control through USB  or in the mode of mannul CONtrol VIA SPI, (refrence clock @ 200Mhz,I aware of the configure of the clock!)  the output of the singal has an obvious distortion just >=5 Mhz (It just have a excellent performance @<=1 MHz).


I THINK that's terrible! Because My  project want to generate a sin singal between 4Mhz to 6Mhz ,at a high precision(1 HZ) and at a Frequency hopping ( about 770KHZ ),and more inportantly,the output singal should be Random rather than linear.


So I guess ti's the problem with the power supply? I power the TB1 &TB2 just from the FPGA board (the 3.3V output pins and 1.8 v output pins ). 


Further more, could you give me some Feasible suggestions about my project?


Looking forward to your reply timely and comprehensive.


THANK YOU very much!!
