OK. Thanks.

OK.

IMO, 'operating-points-v2' word was defined on OPP core. I think that
the external user
of OPP better to use the public helper function instead of using the
interval definition
or value of OPP core directly. Basically, I prefer the provided helper
function if there.
But, it is not critical and doesn't affect the operation. If you want
to keep, it is ok.

It is my missing point. If there, you're right.
Could you provide the code point to check the clock reference on the OPP core?
