Title: Frequency Synthesis, Part 2: Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS)

This month we conclude our two-part series on
frequency synthesis, with an introduction to Direct Digital Synthesis. We will
give a basic review of how a direct digital synthesis system works, touching on
the inner workings of the DDS engine at a relatively high level. We will also
discuss the tradeoffs between PLL and DDS technology as a base choice for
frequency synthesis needs.

Who should attend?
Students and engineers new to the
field of RF and instrumentation design, as well as those more experienced
engineers looking for a refresher on this topic.
