Wow! Great guys!!
Can I expect to see the spectra of the frequency counter output with and without the servo?
RA: I think the SBP-70 is a bad idea. It limits the capture range. So does the SHP-25. You should instead just use a DC-block; the SR620 should work from 1-200 MHz with no problems.
Also, we have to figure out a better solution for the DAC at the ends: we cannot steal the QPD gain slider in the long run and the 4116 DAC at the ends has all 8 channels used up. Should we get the purple box for testing or should we try to use the fast DAC in the EX IO chassis as the actuator?
