Is there a benefit to use a crystal or external reference clock with higher frequency than 26MHz to the A111?

The main purpose of having a range for the input frequency on XIN between 20MHz and 80 MHz is to allow for a flexible hardware integration. It allows the customer to choose a crystal oscillator more freely and an already existing reference clock in the design could be reused for the A111. It must however be ensured that the crystal or the reference clock that is to be used fulfils the requirements stated in the datasheet.

The use of a crystal oscillator or reference clock with higher frequency could benefit the accuracy of the sensor measurement if the relative increase in phase noise is smaller or equal to the relative increase in frequency. The use of a crystal oscillator or reference clock with higher frequency will however increase the power consumption of the A111.
