Calculating RF Choke Inductance on AD8353

For the RF gain block, the AD8353, on page 13 of the datasheet (Rev  C), there is discussion of the need for a RF output choke between the power supply and the RF output when operating at supply levels below 5V. It suggests using a 100 nH inductance for high frequency operation.and care should be taken to ensure that the lowest series self-resonant frequency of this choke is well above the maximum frequency of operation for the AD8353.


Then it says "For lower frequency operation, use a higher value inductor."

How is this calculated for different supplies and frequencies.


In my case 3.3 V supply and 400-450 MHz RF.


Can you give the general procedure and an example solving for my case please?
