Press Release Summary:

RMS RF Power Detector is integrated with directional bridge-based coupler.

Oct 11, 2017 -

Capable of simultaneously measuring forward and reverse RMS power levels with return loss in a single path down to 9 KHz, ADL5920 RMS RF Power Detector is operated in -40°C to +85°C temperature range with 5 V supply voltage and draws 150 mA current. Offering maximum +30 dBm input signal, unit comes in 32-lead, 5 mm x 5 mm LFCSP and supports small form factors. Unit combines sensing and detection function in space-critical applications for delivering an output to driving ADC directly.

Analog Devices’ Wideband RF Power and Return Loss Measurement System Offers Smaller Form Factor and Faster Time to Market

Press release date: Oct 10, 2017

Analog Devices, Inc. today introduced a 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.
