• CN-0399 circuit note improvement related

    In the circuit mentioned in CN-0399, ADL5904 and AD7091R is used. ADL5904 is a true rms responding power detector. ADL 5904 gives output in the form of DC voltage.

    What is the resolution of this detector ?

    Resolution of the circuit dependent on ADC used…

  • adl5904

    Tengo un kit de evaluacion del ADL5904 desde el año 2014 y de las pruebas que he venido realizando el voltaje de salida siempre fluctua entre 0 y 3,6 voltios aproximadamente , en funcion de los dbm  que ingresan. Sin embargo, ahora que reviso las especificaciones…

  • RE: Couple CN0178 question


    The ADL5904 portable power detector board will be released in the coming months, along with the ADL5904 part also. I am currently in the process of writing the circuit note for this CFTL. After release, you will be able to find the board linked on…

  • RE: AD5511 operation at low frequency

    One other thought. If you are just looking to do rms detection at relatively low frequencies, take a look at ADL5904 (www.analog.com/adl5904). It has a linear-in-dB rms output and is lower cost. Frequency range and input power range are similar to ADL5511…

  • ADL5904 Vrms output impedance


    Two related questions:

    1. What is the output impedance of the Vrms pin? (I didn't see it in the data sheet but apologies if I just missed it)

    2. The data sheet suggests putting a 10nF capacitor on the Vrms pin. What is the function of this capacitor…

  • RE: 1.5-30MHz power detector: AD8363 or AD8362

    ADL5904 has better temperature stability than AD8363 or AD8362.  At 30MHz with input power = 10dBm, the threshold variation over temperatures is about 0.2dB.

  • ADL5904 max current pin10, Vrms?

    The data sheet page 8, Table 2. has no value for max current from VRMS pin.

    The suggested application has a capacitor directly on this pin, so some source impedance should be there, I would think.

    I think I damaged the output by shorting it to ground…

  • RE: AD8361ART has output DC offset of about 0.045VDC with no RF input.What is the worst-case range of this parameter? The data sheet says it should be zero with no signal.

    The 0V number in the spec is an extrapolation of the linear region of the transfer function. In practice, at low input levels, the output voltage will go non linear. Some devices will have an offset voltage while the output voltage on others will prematurely…
