ADF4350 & simPLL

How accurate is the lock time simulation results when using simPLL?  I noticed during a design that I couldn't get anything below 80us for a lock time, no matter what the loop filter was doing.  I was using a very high PFD to minimize the effect of the band select function, and should be under 1us for the band select.  I also noticed in the data sheet that we mentioned 50us lock times, so I'm guessing the limitation is in the software?


I guess the next question would be, what's about the fastest lock time one can expect using this device?  My application involves 1MHz frequency steps, using Frac mode, with a 10MHz ref and 10MHz PFD.
