Linear Tech:40GHz RMS Detector Simplifies Accurate Power Measurement

May 02, 2017 // By Michiel Kouwenhoven
A wideband RMS power detector resolves many challenges for microwave design engineers in achieving accurate power measurement of complex modulated signals at microwave frequencies. This white paper discusses features of the LTC5596 from Linear, including input return loss versus frequency, pin configuration and power measurement error and linearity error against frequency
