Reading DC Voltage to the VCO

Is there a way to read the voltage going to the Voltage Controlled Oscillator "VCO" direct from a GPIO? Cheers

Hi LittleBee,

Hi LittleBee,

Sorry, but the there is no way to read the voltage from the Voltage Controlled Oscillator. It can't be monitored, its available internally and monitored by the GPADC which checks whether the VCO tuning voltage is within the min and max limit.

Thanks MT_dialog

Thank MT_dialog,

Thank MT_dialog,
A follow-up question: How about reading the bits from the DAC to the VCO? I understand when it's TX and RX by the Range Extender project.. Trying to look at what channel it's looking at the time of TX or RX. Cheers

Hi LittleBee,

Hi LittleBee,

Sorry but you can't access the VCO from DAC either. The VCO information is not accessable.

Thanks MT_dialog
