ADL5531 - OIP3 value

In the OIP3 vs Pout plot shown in the ADL5531 datasheet, the OIP3 value is reducing beyond 12 dBm of output power.

Should'nt the OIP3 of the device be independent of the output power?


What is the maximum output power which can be delivered by this device? We are planning to use this device as LO driver and we require atleast 17 dBm of the output power to be delivered. Can this device deliver 17 dBm output without distortion? Can we get input power vs output power characteristics of this Amplifier?
