AX8052F143 external inductor

Greetings,

We are working with IC AX8052F143 and I would like to ask you several things regarding the pins 10 (L2) and 11 (L1). If we are not using the external inductor for the VCO how the pins should be left, as open circuit or shortcircuited between them? I ask this because in your development kit I realized that the external inductor is not beeing used and a 0ohm resistor is soldered between them. I this shortcircuit mandatory?

Many thanks,

Yes we do recommend to short L1 & L2 pins if an external inductor is not being used.
