Thanks very much for this information. According to the datasheet you
mentioned in the link below , the supported oscillating frequency by
CVHD-950 is 50 MHz to 130 MHz. The PN specs are provided for some center
frequencies in this range.
However, I am interested in the HF band for which the LFTX/LFRX support
center frequencies up to 30 MHz. For requested center frequencies in (DC,
30 MHz], do you digitally down-sample the center frequency of CVHD-950? Is
there any description on how exactly you do that? and what effect does this
may have on the phase noise of CVHD-950?
I am working on an ocean-based HF radar. Basically, the system measures the
Doppler frequency of ocean waves for different sea states. It is important
that I characterize my system to know its limits and capabilities.
Thanks for your help.
