AD9361 TX power collapse

hi everyone

 

I work on FMCOMMS2 board with my own XILINX V6-FPGA.

 

TEST environment:

FDD, TXLO: 2.45GHz, BBPLL:983.04MHz, BBBW:5MHz, test signal: 100kHz cos and sin to be I and Q without attenuation.

During my test, a power collapse occurred when the TX channel had opened for about 3sec. The collapse is observed in a frequency spectrum analyzer and the operation current falls down from 0.19A to 0.12A.

But when the data ports(here is P1) are set to all zeros, a stable carrier signal(2.45GHz) can be observed in the spectrum analyzer.

 

What may cause the power collapse ?

Thx all.
