Hi,

I want to apply :

http://www.google.com/patents/US7155190

So, I am generating sweeping frequency using DDS (AD9910 evaluation board) with very high accuracy (200MHz to 250MHz with 4nS stepping)
the output signal I want to feed it to PLL or synthesizer  such (ADF5355 evaluation board) .
This PLL or synthesizer is intended to act as frequency multiplier and output a signal in range of (3 - 4GHz, or so)
Is it applicable?
IS there any consideration or special configuration I should do?

What about lock time?

Many thanks

Regards
