Is the IDT 8V97051 pin compatible with any of the other manufacturer’s RF PLLs?

The 8V97051 is pin compatible with the Analog Devices ADF4350 and ADF4351, the Texas Instruments LMX2581 (when using the internal VCO), and the Maxim MAX2870 and MAX2871. In addition, the IDT 8V97051 is also software compatible with the Analog Devices ADF4350 and ADF4351 (when not programing the extended registers).

The pin compatibility with the LMX2581 has some minor exceptions: it assumes that the internal VCO is used, the Pin 11 (Fin), which can be used to receive an external VCO signal, is connected to Ground (not used); Pin 25 (LD – Lock Detect) has more options that are not used); and the EPAD is not required on the LMX2581.
