I am currently working with the AD-FMCOMMS4-EBZ and I am having an issue tuning the RX LO frequency to within an acceptable accuracy. Before I go any further let me give you a quick overview of my setup.


I am running a AD-FMCOMMS4-EBZ with a ZedBoard (Zynq SDR-II Eval.).

I have setup all the Xilinx tools to use the No-OS API for the AD-FMCOMMS2-EBZ which is the AD9361 chip. I know that the FMCOMMS4 has the AD9364 chip, but the wiki pages for this card redirect you to the AD9361 SW and HDL pages. A quick glance looks like all the registers are the same for either chip and on boot of the No-OS API software I get a successful initialization message.


The issue I am having is that when the board comes up and the RX LO is tuned, I have seen the LO off by ~2kHz at 750MHz and ~4kHz at 2400MHz (the AD-FMCOMMS4-EBZ initial state at boot up). I cannot find the exact reference in the user guide (UG-672), but I remember reading that the ad9361_set_rx_lo_freq function should handle LO calibration for jumps exceeding 100MHz, however this does not seem to be the case even on start up.


Could it be that I have the wrong API for this board and if so where is the correct SW package?

What registers should I look at to confirm a calibration is being done?


I would greatly appreciate any help with this issue.
