Re: [softrock40] Low-jitter oscillator generates any frequency from 1 0 MHz to 1.4 GHz
The setup programming (and driving an LCD) could always be taken care of with a small PIC but I would be interested in the spurs it generats. I ought to drive by the place to see what size company it is or if they are importers.

same thing to a radio, the radio requires way better specifications
than a CPU or a shift register receiving serial data.
I'm sure before long several people will look into it, we are all
interested in a reasonable quality LO to give us mobility with the
SoftRock while not breaking the bank.
Also be aware that this part requires a CPU to program it every time
you turn the power on or want to change the frequency, so the
increase in price will be way more than the present cost of a SoftRock.
