Performance Comparison Between 1572 (0x0624) and 3115 (0x0C2B) for Register DBLR_IBIAS_CTRL1 (R25[15:0])

There is a new setting for register DBLR_IBIAS_CTRL1 (R25[15:0]): from 1572 (0x0624) to 3115 (0x0C2B). The old setting can operate up to 19-GHz output, but the new setting can extend the frequency range to 20 GHz. The field name DBLR_IBIAS_CTRL1 is short for "Doubler Current Bias Control 1". It only impacts the doubler and does not affect the performance below 15 GHz. Shown in Figure 57 and Figure 58, with old R25 value, the output power and phase noise floor fall apart beyond 19 GHz. But with the new setting, they remain stable up to 20 GHz. Figure 59 and Figure 60 show that new R25 value leads to less output power variation with temperature at high frequencies. Figure 61 shows the improvement in half harmonic.
