Now in datasheet of oscillator, output power mentioned is 5dBm into 50 Ohms.
But lets say if load is not 50 Ohms but a high impedance load, then what will be the output power of oscillator?
Is sine wave oscillator like this, only required a 50 Ohms load for stable oscillations and if load other than 50 Ohms is connected to output of oscillator it will not oscillate at all?
Actually this sine wave oscillator will be on a separate PCB which we are calling as "CLOCK DISTRIBUTION BOARD".
Sine wave clock from "CLOCK DISTRIBUTION BOARD" will be connected to main board which has LMK04832 PLL through a SMA cable.
I have checked the CMOS version of the oscillator : CVHD-950.
In datasheet of CMOS oscillator ,they mentioned the load as 15pF.
Now I need to know how much load in capacitance, this sine wave oscillator version can drive because this SMA cable will be having some capacitance and also LMK04832 refclock inputs will be having some capacitance.
Is there any way to know the value of load capacitance, this sine wave oscillator can drive ,from the available oscillator specification in datasheet like 5dBm into 50 Ohms?
