ADL5801 Maximum RF Input Level

Dear Analog Devices,


I have a question with regards to the maximum RF level (incident to the RF port of the mixer) that the ADL5801 can withstand. In the datasheets, the absolute maximum power is quoted as +20dBm. Is this continuous power or transient? Do Analog Devices have any relevant data showing the device's tolerance to high power input signals? What power level would damage the device or, if not damage, degrade its performance and longer term reliability? Would you please be kind enough to provide me with any useful data on this.
