Testing of Logarithmic RF Detector AD8318 PCB

I have made a PCB of AD8318, logarithmic RF detector as per the details mentioned in the datasheet. I want to test this circuit before I link it with other PCBs which together form a communication circuit. So, what tests/equipment I should use to perform the tests in order to ensure that the PCB is as expected? My emphasis is to check the accuracy of the PCB rather than the performance.


Additional Info:

The end use of the PCB is to detect pulses. The RF detector is used in link with a fast comparator TLV3501. Together they detect RF energy and regenerate the pulses. The pulses are received with a maximum frequency of 5 MHz.
