The DC2847A kit is a dual RMS power detector with integrated directional bridge featuring the ADL5920 IC. The ADL5920 Arduino shield enables the evaluation of the device with the Linduino board. Together with the GUI, forward (as well as reverse) power can be measured and monitored on PC. Return Loss is calculated and displayed.
The ADL5920 with integrated bridge simultaneously measure forward power and reverse RMS power up to 7GHz and provides return loss results. The detector has 50dB of dynamic range at 1GHz. The demo board requires external power supply that connects to the Linduino board.
The DC2847A is compatible with EVAL-ADICUP3029 and Linduino. For both platforms, PC software GUI applications (ADICUP3029, Linduino) are available using which, the user can make RF power measurements and calibrate the device to decrease measurement error. Device drivers for ADICUP3029 and for Linduino are also available, which the user may use to develop their own code for RF measurement, device calibration, and more.
