Features and Benefits
- Full featured evaluation kit for the ADL5920, specified from 9 kHz to 7 GHz
- Integrated bidirectional bridge that measures forward and reverse power
- Integrated dual channel rms power detector that measures forward and reverse RF power
- PC-based GUI that provides instant forward power, reverse power, and return loss information
The demonstration circuit (DC2847A) is a dual rms power detector with an integrated bidirectional bridge featuring the ADL5920 IC. The Arduino shield evaluates the ADL5920 with the Linduino board (DC2026C). The graphical user interface (GUI) allows the PC to measure and to monitor the forward and reverse power. Return loss is calculated and displayed on the PC.
The ADL5920 simultaneously measures forward and reverse rms power up to 7 GHz and provides return loss results. The ADL5920 detector has 50 dB of dynamic range at 1 GHz. The DC2847A-KIT requires an external power supply that connects to the DC2026C by setting Jumper JP1.
