I am using Genesys™ Virtex-5 FPGA Development Board from digilent. I want to design a frequency synthesizer utilizing  DAC board AD9739A FMC Card. I have seen the AD9739A Native FMC Card / Xilinx Reference Designs  given at http://wiki.analog.com/resources/fp. I have a few queries regrading the capability of the design configuration:

 

1) Can the setup be used for generating frequency sweeps of 100 MHz bandwidth?

2) I want the frequency sweep to be generated at a carrier of 1.5 GHz (100 MHz bandwidth). Is it possible to achieve the same using the said configuration?

 

Is there another alternative for the choice of DAC board.
