The 3.5GHz RF OUT of our Eval_HMC836LP6CE is only -5.5dBm measured by Signal Analyzers(RSA5100B). This power is far below 6dBm in the HMC836 datasheet. I hope engineers can help us to solve the problem. Thank you very much.
Besides the mismatch of the HMC836 bias network and values with the eval board, can it be the wrong(or inproper ) PLL Eval Software's settings that makes the output power weak?
