soldering another VCO to EV-ADF4159EBxZ

Hello,

For measurement purposes we need to generate a frequency chirp from 9 to 9.55 GHz.

to do this we thought of using EV-ADF4159EBxZ board together with HMC510 or HMC734 VCO. If I understood correctly their packaging is similar to the original VCO that can be soldered to the board (MAOC-009269).

1. Can those  VCO's be soldered to the board in place of the original VCO?

2. Can I buy the board with one of the VCO's already assembled?

3. If not, Should I use EB1Z (and just solder it) or EB3Z (remove the original vco and the solder it)

4. Will the functionality be hindered? (voltage levels, matching, output power, etc)

 

Thank you

Jakob
