I need to generate a sinusoidal signal sweep...

The ideal band from 300KHz to 20GHz - smooth & clean, low-power for a medical application.

The compromise band is 500MHz to 20GHz.

I think a step resolution of 25KHz would work..

 

Between the ADI and HMC pll/vco/dividers, and DSS options

I could use some direction in the RF design space.

Factors:

Power is paramount (portable device).

Simplicity.  Contiguous/unswitched op preferred.

Size/Space.
