BLDC switching frequency

I see that in BLDC control there are two parameters for switching frequency: max and min. Is that because the PWM frequency is adapted on the go?

Can I put max and min the same value to keep a constant frequency?

Switching frequency is mapped according to dutycycle.

switching_frequency_now = (float)conf->m_bldc_f_sw_min * (1.0 - fabsf(dutyCycle)) + conf->m_bldc_f_sw_max * fabsf(dutyCycle);

Which is the same as (pseudocode):

switching_frequency = switching_frequency_min + dutycycle*(switching_frequency_max - switching_frequency_min)

You should be able to set max and min to the same value to keep a constant frequency.
