RMS power detector

1 May 2013 Analogue, Mixed Signal, LSI

Analog Devices introduced a new RMS power detector featuring operation from 10 MHz up to 10 GHz and a 67 dB measurement range. The ADL5906 TruPwr RMS detector is frequency versatile and eliminates the need for external input tuning devices such as a balun.

The chip is well suited for a variety of applications that require an accurate RMS measurement of signal power, including communications infrastructure, power amplifier linearisation, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint, cable, military, satellite, instrumentation equipment and ISM-band transmitters.

Requiring only a single supply of 5 V and a few capacitors, the ADL5906 is easy to use and capable of being driven with a single-ended or differential input drive. It also provides low temperature drift across -55°C to +125°C that is highly repeatable from part to part.
