Understanding, Operating, And Interfacing To Integrated Diode-Based RF Detectors

By Eamon Nash

AN6

Because of their fundamental rectifying characteristic, diodes have been used to generate dc voltages that are proportional to ac and RF signal levels for as long as there have been diodes. This article will compare the performance of diode-based RF and microwave with integrated circuit alternatives. Topics covered will include transfer function linearity, temperature stability, and ADC interfacing. For more information, download the full application note.
