Analog Devices Launches ADL5920 RMS RF Power Detector

Analog

Analog Devices launches 9 KHz – 7 GHz directional bridge and dual RMS RF power detector that can simultaneously measure forward and reverse RMS power levels in a signal path along with return loss. The new ADL5920 detector represents a change to conventional approaches by integrating a directional bridge-based coupler that results in an industry leading level of integration and bandwidth.

For space-critical applications, the ADL5920 integrates the coupling or sensing function with the detection function and provides an output that can drive a precision analog-to-digital converter (ADC) directly. For wideband operation or for frequency variants, the ADL5920 detector eliminates the need to choose a different directional coupler for each frequency. This integrated wideband device supports smaller form factors and faster product time to market.

What ADL5920 Offers:

  • Allows for coupled power measurements down to 9 KHz
  • Maximum input signal: +30 dBm with handling capability for open and shorted loads
  • Requires a 5V supply and draws 150 mA
  • Supplied in a 32-lead, 5 mm x 5 mm LFCSP, for the operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C

I have a passion to learn new things. There are always possibilities for learning. Everything needs to be analyzed critically, and I believe to do it by creating a solid bond between a reader and writer. Whether, it is an article or news story, it should not be distorted and must be reported in a balanced way. I believe to stick to the ethics of journalism.
