I'm planning to output of TCXO as reference signal for HMC830 PLL.
Please clarify the following to use the same.
1. TCXO part that I selected provides clipped sinewave output with 0.8V Vpp. Does this reference level is adequate for PLL?
2. Do I need to use any matching circuit between TCXO output and PLL XREFP pin (or)
connect with following components in series using short 50Ohms traces. AC coupling capacitor, 100 Ω resistor to ground followed by an AC coupling capacitor as recommended in datasheet for 50Ohm match.
3. If clipped sinewave output TCXO can not be used as reference, can I use CMOS compatible TCXO as reference ? if so please suggest on matching and attenuator circuit, if required to be used.
