I have attached a brief introduction to generating a staircase shaped ramp with the ADF4159. This example outputs 12 steps of 5 MHz; each step is 10 ms long. However, all the frequency and timing parameters are very flexible. The PLL only needs to be programmed once and it will continuously output the waveform.
