ADF4356 strong spurs

Dear technical support,

  I'am debuging the ADF4356. But there are very strong spurs as high as -66dBc

  It's my own board.

  LoopFilter bandwidth is 40KHz,

  f_ref = 140MHz,   R_div = 2,     f_pfd = 70MHz,       Icp = 0.9mA

  In this photo,f_vco = 4050MHz,10MHz away from f_pfd's integer boundary.

  IBS is far away from the carrier frequency. When the carrier frequency is 30MHz away form f_pfd's integer boundary, it's about -78dBc. I can't tolerate it.

  I have searched for the answer for a long time and tried many ways. I hope you can help me .

  Thank you very much.
