Source for 1GC1-4210 Chip for E4436B FRAC-N Board

After determining that the loss of phase lock of my E4436B is due to a defective 1GC1-4210 SSOP chip on the FRAC-N board, I am now looking for a replacement chip. Does Agilent still stock this chip? If so, is it possible for me to purchase just the chip from Agilent, or do I have to send my board into Agilent to have them replace the chip?

If Agilent no longer stocks this chip, does anyone know of a reliable source for them? I have been in contact with a number of chip suppliers (all of whom seem to be in China), but am concerned about the likelihood of getting a usable, in-spec chip, given that I have no familiarity with any of these companies and therefore have no basis upon which to pick any one supplier over any other.
