ADL5336 AGC detector bandwidth

I'm planning on using the ADL5336 for an AGC funtion but the AGC settling time needs to be on the order of a few microseconds.

The datasheet shows that the VGA's gain response time is ~ 100nsec but there is little data on the detector's response time.

The datasheet appnote shows a .1uF averaging cap on the DTO1 & DTO2 detector outputs. The question is: what is the detector's response time as a function of the cap value  or more specifically, what is the fastest response time achievable & the associated cap value?.


Thanks , Andy
