Transmitter power measurement and control
The AD8314 is a complete low cost subsystem for the
measurement and control of RF signals in the frequency range
of 100 MHz to 2.7 GHz, with a typical dynamic range of 45 dB,
intended for use in a wide variety of cellular handsets and other
wireless devices. It provides a wider dynamic range and better
accuracy than possible using discrete diode detectors. In
particular, its temperature stability is excellent over the full
operating range of −40°C to +85°C.
Its high sensitivity allows control at low power levels, thus
reducing the amount of power that needs to be coupled to the
detector. It is essentially a voltage-responding device, with a
typical signal range of 1.25 mV to 224 mV rms or –58 dBV to
−13 dBV. This is equivalent to −45 dBm to 0 dBm, re 50 Ω.
For convenience, the signal is internally ac-coupled, using a
5 pF capacitor to a load of 3 kΩ in shunt with 2 pF. This high-
pass coupling, with a corner at approximately 16 MHz,
determines the lowest operating frequency. Therefore, the
source can be dc grounded.
The AD8314 provides two voltage outputs. The first, V_UP,
increases from close to ground to about 1.2 V as the input signal
level increases from 1.25 mV to 224 mV. This output is intended
for use in measurement mode. Consult the Applications section
for information on this mode. A capacitor can be connected
between the V_UP and FLTR pins when it is desirable to
increase the time interval over which averaging of the input
The second output, V_DN, is an inversion of V_UP but with
twice the slope and offset by a fixed amount. This output starts
at about 2.25 V (provided the supply voltage is ≥3.3 V) for the
minimum input and falls to a value close to ground at the
maximum input. This output is intended for analog control
loop applications. A setpoint voltage is applied to VSET, and
V_DN is then used to control a VGA or power amplifier. Here
again, an external filter capacitor can be added to extend the
averaging time. Consult the Applications section for
information on this mode.
The AD8314 is available in 8-lead MSOP and 8-lead LFCSP
packages and consumes 4.5 mA from a 2.7 V to 5.5 V supply.
When powered down, the typical sleep current is 20 μA.
