Yes, indeed. We have the additional requirement of being able to adjust the frequency (by a relatively small amount) without loss of lock. Recalculating the DCO mode and M,N,M2 from scratch each time based on the target frequency, like was done in the 2.6.37 based tree from TI was not acceptable, so we try to change m2 first to see if we can reach the target frequency and fall back to recalculate parameters from scratch if that fails.

BTW, are you aware of section 2.1.2 of “TMS320DM814x DaVinci Digital Media Processors Silicon Revisions 3.0, 2.1”? <>
