I would like to use AD9914 as fast frequency hopping,and now I want to change REF CLK alternant (for example 3.3GHz and 3.5GHz alternant) for some reson.Of course, FTW is changing as well. From the datesheet,we know DAC calibration occurs when the REF CLK or internal system clock is changed.But the length of time to calibrate the DAC clock is very long (about 100 μs),and I want the frequency hopping is fast(about 50ns),so I wouldn't calibration the DAC output when the REF CLK changs alternant.Is that OK? and what will happen if I don't calibration the DAC output?
