How narrow can I make the loop bandwidth with a traditional analog filter
using reasonable parts? Do people build GPSDO style digital filters?
Is there a reasonable formula for the spurs from a DDS? That sounds like a
place where guaranteed-by-design would be appropriate.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
