AD9528 VCXO_IN pin max voltage level ?

The AD9528 data sheet directs as follows in Table 4.  "Can accommodate single ended input via ac grounding of unused input; instantaneous voltage on either pin must not exceed 1.8V".     The AD9528 EVAL BOARD schematic appears setup to drive this pin directly from a CHVD-950 VCXO output which has 3.3V drive.  Seems like a conflict!   The data sheet also presents a substantial amount of characterization data using the CHVD-950 VCXO.  Can the AD9528 VCXO pin be safely driven above 1.8V in single ended mode?  ....and....  How should this VCXO be connected to the AD9528?
