Frequently Asked Question

My applications are RF, not for clocking data converters. Can ADI's 951X ICs be used for RF applications?

Yes, in many cases they can. However, our clock parts only cover frequencies up to 1600 MHz or so, depending on the part. The phase noise of the clock parts is very low, comparable to some of the best LO sources. If a sinusoidal output is desired a low-pass filter will convert the square wave output to a sinusoid.
