The LT5504 is an 800MHz to 2700MHz monolithic integrated measuring receiver, capable of detecting a wide dynamic range RF signal from -75dBm to +5dBm. The logarithm of the RF signal is precisely converted into a linear DC voltage. The LT5504 consists of RF/IF limiters, an LO buffer amplifier, a limiting mixer, a 3rd-order 450MHz integrated low pass filter, RF/IF detectors and an output interface. The ultrawide dynamic range is achieved by simultaneously measuring the RF signal and a downconverted IF signal obtained using the on-chip mixer and an external local oscillator. The RF- and IF-detected signals are summed to generate an accurate linear DC voltage proportional to the input RF voltage (or power) in dB. The output is buffered with a low output impedance driver.
