Vtune out-of-spec of HMC733

Category: Hardware
Product Number: HMC733

Hi, all. We're developing a frequency synthesizer using HMC733 and ADF41513.

HMC733 datasheet promise around Vtune of 18V for output of 20 GHz. But we observed 21.2 V for output of 20 GHz.

(we measure Vtune and output freq. as dot in the illustration above)

Does out-of-spec Vtune affect output power? The output power is -8.2 dBm after power splitter(EP2k-19+) and dc-block cap.

We would also like to check if this is caused by device aging. The lot number is HV64.
