Hello! I have a question about HMC7043 RFSYNCIN pin. For example, i have 2 HMC7043. Each HMC7043 has its own input clock sourse of the same frequency (3 GHz). i want the outputs to be synchronized. For synchronization i need only to send just one pulse simultaneously on RFSYNCIN pins of the devices? Correct me if i'm wrong.

What width of pulse should be? Could it be more than one period of input signal(3 GHz)? I want to connect rfsyncin to the fpga. is it ok? Also i have a question about additive jitter. Datasheet says that it is less then 15 fs. Will analog delay using increase jitter?
