  • Hi sca,

    Sorry about the delay responding to this ...

    Both of the two named devices have decent sensitivity and relatively flat frequency response across X to Ka band spectrum. Keep in mind, these are Schottky detectors, so sensitivity is not going to be great. For better sensitivity, you could take a look at LTC5596 or it's higher frequency cousin the LTC5597.  Hope that helps.   -Bruce H.
