In the datasheet it is mentioned that, ADL5801 can have LO drive from -10 to +10 dBm. What is the gain of the LO amplifier in the Mixer? Generally, it is required that the RF input to the Mixer to be atleast 10 to 15 dB lower than the LO power. So what is the maximum RF power which can be given to the mixer if the input LO level is -10 dBm. Does the LO amplifier boost this Low power LO such that the Mixer can receive RF input of 0 dBm power?
