ADN-2530 Sinusoidal Driving

I'm looking into using the ADN-2530 VCEL driver to generate an optical calibration signal. The proposed design is driving a 1-10GHz sinusoidal signal in one of the inputs to the ADN-2530 and terminating the other input with a 50-ohm load.


-Would there be any concern in sinusoidal driving of the chip? (It will be AC coupled)


-What degradation in performance can be expected from single-sided driving?


-Jitter is a large concern, would it become unacceptable with a sine wave?
