Hi

Yes, I think the dither would just be a minor routine running on what ever you use to discipline the rubidium. Other than a disciplined environment I don't see a lot of  need for sub 7x10^-13 steps.

It's not like there is a flashy GUI for the PIC to keep up with. A little 8 pin PIC should pull it off with not too high effort.
