What is the maximum time rate at which the tuning voltage can be swept for proper functionality of HMC388LP4.
The sweep time will depend on any source resistance, tune port series resistance/capacitance. These parameters are different to various operating conditions, we could not provide the maximum time rate.
Thank you so much for the reply. I would also like to the know VCO response time, for any change in the tuning voltage.
The VCO response time is related to the modulation bandwidth, which is going to be on the order of 100 to 200MHz. You need to first determine the source impedance and add it to Vtune port schematic, then run an AC analysis of the tune board to determine 3dB cutoff frequency.
