I am using one of those all in one FM stereo transmitter chips. It works very well, but there is a lot of phase noise from the PLL. The chip's default crystal clock speed is 32khz, but the datasheet says the device can be programed for several crystals all the way up to 38.4mhz. Would increasing the clock speed reduce the PLL noise in any way? Is there any other way to reduce this or is it just part of the design?
