VCOREG is in fact on chip LDO which takes 3.3V and generates 1.8V for 
VCOs supply. However, we do not recommend internal VCO 1.8V regulators 
to be used as they are more noisy than the external ones. Hence, by 
default internal regulators are powered down and bypassed so clean 
external 1.8V can be supplied via the chip pins.
