HMC3716 loop filter recommendation

Dear Sir

Please could you recommend an op amp and loop filter for an HMC3716 with a VCO operating near the maximum frequency of 1.3GHz, tuned for best integrated phase noise? Phase noise of the VCO is approximately:








The reference is very good so I think it is possible to ignore the phase noise contribution from the reference. The integration frequency range of interest is 40Hz to 40MHz.


Have you ever made a PLL with the HMC3716 operating at 1.3GHz?


Many thanks
