Im a novice in RF.Im trying to use RMS detector AD8361.
my operating conditions are like Vs=5V,freq=500MHz.CW,ref 50Ohm impedance.
Im confused about dynamic range specified in datasheet..
The datasheet specifies a dynamic range of 30dB with +/- 2dB error in detection for Vs =5V.
It also specifies that the linear response upper limit is 9.4dBm for Vs=5V & ref 50Ohm impedance.
So does it translates that with +/-2dB error i can detect power of inpout signals from 9.4dBm to -20.6dBm.??
Am i right in saying so..or is my understanding is not correct...
Thanks for any help,
