Envelope Detectors & Peak Detectors

Analog Devices’ family of Envelope Detectors and Peak Detectors provide instantaneous detection and measurement of signal amplitude across frequencies ranging from dc to tens of GHz. These fast-responding, temperature-compensated devices provide a variety of output formats such as instantaneous envelope output voltage, peak-hold, or a digital threshold detection indicator.

Envelope and Peak Detectors are ideally suited for use in applications such as Envelope Tracking in Power Amplifier bias control, Pulse Detection, Input Protection of Receivers and Power Amplifiers, LO Leakage correction of IQ Modulators, and Electronic Warfare.
