I'm going to experiment this weekend. I thought you could do it. Set the phase offset register to the same number. And leave them, don't alter again, unless you make a huge frequency change e. In any case, the SiLabs documentation recommends even integer divider for the MultiSynth stage for lowest output jitter phase noise.
Therefore it's a good idea to do it this way, anyway - even if you aren't looking for a quadrature LO. Only do a Reset when you change the MultiSynth Divider. Here, the reset is absolutely required in order to set up the initial phase relationship correctly between the two outputs. But you do NOT need a PLL Reset subsequently when you change the frequency, even when you change the frequency by a substantial amount.
It also generates clicks albeit lesser ones. It is a bad solution to the problem of clicks, because it does not tackle the real problem unnecessary PLL Reset commandsit only masks the problem slightly. As long as you heed my advice in 2 above you will never need to temporarily switch off SiA outputs. Unfortunately there was no easy way, due to the poor SiLabs documentation.
And we appreciate the care you have taken to document this and your other products. I'm curious, have you measured the increase in jitter when going to a fractional output msynth on the si? Not clear to me whether or not this is a significant consideration for the uBitx. Another issue, the uBitx uses all three clocks out of the si, and with only two PLL's available in the si it's at least bothersome if not impractical to keep all three output msynth's in integer mode.
I agree that you must be in integer mode to use the phase shift feature to get quadrature clocks, but that is not a requirement on the uBitx. Very nice to know that the vco can work well beyond the mhz spec, thanks! We could, however, use PLLA on clk2 as you suggest, with an integer output msynth. Choose the PLLB frequency based on the required mostly fixed frequency of clk1 into the second mixer, so this could also have an integer output msynth.
But this would complicate the sibx routines considerably, also increase the amount of flash used. Unless jitter is known to be an issue on the uBitx, I am inclined not to bother.
Open Source PCB for Ararinha QRP
A better fix might be to build a Raduino that uses the lower jitter and lower crosstalk si, especially for those wishing to extend the uBitx for use as a VHF rig. But with that single pll, the output msynths are done accurately enough that jitter is better than can be done on the si using integer output msynths. Also, you do realize that the uBitx uses only one of the two PLL's inside the si? The si has two pll's but the second pll is not used.Not a member?
