ADI’s Wideband RF Power and Return Loss Measurement System Offers a Smaller Form Factor and Faster Time to Market 

Wideband RF Power-Return-Loss-Measurement-System

Analog Devices, Inc. on October 11th, 2017 introduced a 9 KHz – 7 GHz directional bridge and dual RMS RF power detector that can simultaneously measure forward and reverse RMS power levels in a signal path along with return loss. The new ADL5920 detector represents a change to conventional approaches by integrating a directional bridge-based coupler that results in an industry-leading level of integration and bandwidth.  For space-critical applications, the ADL5920 integrates the coupling or sensing function with the detection function and provides an output that can drive a precision analog-to-digital converter (ADC) directly. For wideband operation or for frequency variants, the ADL5920 detector eliminates the need to choose a different directional coupler for each frequency. This integrated, wideband device supports smaller form factors and faster product time to market.

ADL5920 Product Highlights

  • Allows for coupled power measurements down to 9 KHz
  • Maximum input signal: +30 dBm with handling capability for open and shorted loads
  • Requires a 5V supply and draws 150 mA
  • Supplied in a 32-lead, 5 mm x 5 mm LFCSP, for the operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C
