AD9361 Recommended 3.3V Oscillator to Drive XTALN

I have identified a TCXO oscillator that I’d like to use as the reference clock for my AD9361, but it produces a 3.3V CMOS output, while the part datasheet says that an external clock source should be 1.3Vpp maximum and connected to XTALN. 


Does ADI have a recommended solution for using a 3.3V oscillator to drive XTALN?  (The reference manual says the signal can be clipped sine or CMOS, but only gives 1.3V as a value).
