Vector Power Measurement

The Vector Power Measurement family extends Analog Devices’ broad RF Power Detector portfolio beyond (scalar) signal strength (power magnitude) measurement. In addition, Vector Power Measurement devices provide phase measurement and/or power measurement of waveforms traveling in the forward and reverse directions along a transmission line. They provide an easy-to-use, broad band and very compact solution for measurement of Scattering Parameters (s-parameters). Applications for Vector Power Measurement devices include antenna tuning in wireless transmitters, built-in test in modular systems, materials analysis, production test equipment and other instrumentation and measurement systems for scientific and industrial use.
