ad9739a-fmc-ebz external clock

Hello,


I would like to clock the AD9739A-FMC-EBZ with a high performance external 10 MHz OCXO. The AD9739A wiki page says "jumper CLOCK SOURCE (S1) must be moved [from the ADF4350 position] to the ADCLK914 position".


I'm assuming this means that the external clock option does not allow itself to feed into the ADF4350 for high frequency generation. So will I need to purchase some sort of clock synthesis PLL eval board so that I can generate a 1.6-2.5 GHz clock from my 10 MHz OCXO?

 

Are there any recommendations on devices which can be used for the greatest phase noise performance?

 

Thanks,
