ADL5801 - LO amplifier and drive

The LO power at any Mixer should be atleast 10 to 15 dBm higher than the input power.

But in datasheet of the ADL5801, the nominal power for both LO and RFIN are both shown as 0 dBm. So is this right number? Will LO amplifier take care of the required boost.


Since this mixer is double balanced, is it ok if we give square wave as LO input?  Will there be any performance degradation?


Thanks in advance
