oops. Would have ideally gotten to taking a close look at this before v6 :(  
Sorry about that!  I don't suppose we have any other reviewers whose knowledge of
this sort of hardware is fresher and deeper than mine?  I'd like more eyes on
the next version of this if possible!

Ideally I'd like any acronyms spelt out in the descriptions.
(I assume this is variable gain amplifier?) The fun question from looking at
this in the datasheet is where is it in the functional diagram?  I'm not actually
sure where it might be.  Perhaps in the VVA, so on the VAAT input?

If you have a convenient path to point out to your datasheet people that it is
undocumented, that might be good to clean up :)
My guess is this is needed if the precision reference on the example circuit needs
a high impedance input, but I'm only guessing.

What is LO and why might it need a buffer? (or is it always a good idea to turn this on
when using the device?)

IF stands for what? Intermediate Frequency...

I struggled to figure this out from the datasheet, but is there a circumstance under which
if and iq mode might both be enabled? Nothing stops you setting the registers that way, but
it seems to be documented as one or the other...

For that matter, why probably want to describe this as "baseband IQ mode" given datasheet
refers to as baseband in most places other than the register definition.

This is curious. I agree that the register write documents it as x1 enable, but it seems
to be be enabling polyphase filters - what exactly their relationship is to x1 is not that
clear to me.  Perhaps one to query with the hardware people if possible!

Would you ever have this off whilst running?  It's possible I'm missing something, but
I think you need that frequency path to be enabled to get anything at all to
happen.

This being completely undocumented apart from the register setting, I have 0 idea what
it actually is.   Any chance we can get some more details?

Switch what to the other LO sideband?

So my reading of the datasheet on this one didn't lead me to a completely clear answer.
Does turning this one effectively stop you using the internal ADC to measure the power
whilst exposing the signal on an external pin?
