Hi,

i am just testing the tx power of AD9361 with the FMCOMMS2 and Zedboard platform.

The Tx1A path is enabled and the Tx2A is disabled, the Tx Attenuation is 0 dB with reg 073 and 074 set zero, and BIST is used to generate a sine wave ,but i got the max tx power is just about -1.7dBm. The tx LO Frequency is 800MHz, and the reference max tx power shall be about 8dBm. 

 Below is the test result of PSD,

Can somebody give me some suggestions?

Thank you.

 

Lisely.
