I got a problem about AGC

hi, i have a question about AGC loop (using ADL5330 and AD8318)


i'm making the circuit about AGC, you can see the figure1


i want the constant power about -30dBm


so i was changed input power level of VGA(ADL5330) when i fixed setpoint voltage


but power was not fixed


i think in situation of fixing setpoint voltage, even though vga input power level is change, vga out power have to be fixed, is it right?


but it's changable


the VGA(*adl5330) has the gain range of -30 ~ 16 dBm at 2200MHz


and i'm using the 20 dB coupler. so i need detector range of -50~04 dBm, so i select AD8318


but important thing is that the loop is not fixed (for changing the input level & fixing setpoint voltage)


so how can i get this condition

No.1 ) constant power level of -30dBm,

No.2 ) VGA input power level -40~0 dBm (it's changeable)(tell me what range needed)


here's my question

No.1) What's the problem about my circuit?

No.2) what setpoint voltage needed when i get -30dBm of VGA power out level?

No.3) what range of VGA input level needed? how can i decide it?

No.4) R divider value (412/1Kohm) is nesessary?

No.5) i need more specific answer, so tell me more about this solution


please reply quickly


i'm waiting for your answer,


thank you!
