Re: Very Late Start - Type 2


Well as a matter of fact you can get them on ebay cheap(relatively). Item 183406561654. But you better hurry, there's only one left ;-)

Uh Clifford,
The eval board for AD9959 is $430 at Digikey.. Can you get those on
ebay for cheap?

Si5351 board is about $7.

You might as well go buy a used HP or something, no?
I think I have about $25 in my PHSNA total out the door...

If you want higher frequencies, you should consider adapting PHSNA
to use the AD9959. You get four channels with a 500MHz core, so can
generate up to 200MHz sine waves. I've published driver code for it:

I'm using this in a new full multi-port VNA design which requires two
coherent channels (digitally phase locked, but sweeping on different
frequencies). I'll let you know how that progresses.
