Cool on getting it going :)
If the LPC exposed it's 1.8 V supply then you could just use a 'LV163 at
1.8 V. (Had to say it.)
For the cost of ~milliamp currents you could make your own 1.8 V supply
with a resistive divider. An 'LV163 should draw sub-milliamp at 1.5 MHz.
Maybe you could capacitively couple into the '163 and use a
megaohm-range divider to DC bias the input at around 3.3/2 = 1.65 V?
I think this seems cleanest given the options.
