AD9958 PLL parameters and discrepancy between datasheet and Eval Board Schematic.

Hi all,

I noticed that the AD9958 datasheet recommends a loop filter with R=0, C=680pF tied to AVDD.

The Evaluation Board schematic shows R=680ohm, C=680pF tied to GND

(Eval board values seem to be correct as an R = 0ohm would result in severely under-damped loop characteristic).

Which values would be correct?


or a better question:

What is the PLL's VCO sensitivity in MHz/V?

(This value should change with frequency and a chart or tabulated data would be needed).


It would be nice if ADI would integrate the AD9958 PLL parameters into the ADIsimPLL for simulation.
