ADF5901 calibration results

I am using the ADF5901 as part of our system, initializing it once and recalibrating it periodically.
Is there any way to get/read a calibration result after finishing the initialization / the re-calibration of the transmitter?
We want to use it to test our system integrity :
1. after manufacturing
2. on a regular basis
  • Results from the calibration routines such as the VCO bias level for one part at a fixed temperature is not repeatable so there is not much use in reading this back.

    There is no “calibration successful” flag that can be read back, as the calibration just runs based on the inputs and settings it is given.

    Ensuring there is enough of a delay left for the calibration to complete should be sufficient.
