Part Number: LMX2571
The frequency that the customer needs to receive is 326M ~ 396M, and the frequency that the customer needs to send is 400 ~ 470M. However, after the register is configured, the transmit locking range is only 400-466M, and the receive frequency is only 326-392M. The register configuration has been modified EXTVCO_CP_GAIN，EXTVCO_CP_IUP and EXTVCO_CP_IDN and so on, but no matter how to change, the result is the same, there are several MHz can not be locked.
The external VCO is used. Some hardware information is as follows:
CV voltage range 0-5V (corresponding to receiving frequency 310M-410M, corresponding to transmitting frequency 390-485M), we need frequency corresponding to voltage 1-4V
Feedback loop Fin = -40dbm.
Best Regards, Amy Luo
Fin = -40dBm, isn't it a typo?
What is the Vtune voltage at 326MHz, 392MHz, 400MHz, 466MHz?
What is the supply voltage at VcpExt pin?
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Noel Fung:
Thank you for your reply. The problem has been found. It's a hardware problem. It has nothing to do with LMX2571
