RF Schottky Peak Detectors

All RF devices must carefully monitor and control their RF power transmission to comply with government regulation and minimize RF interference with other radio devices. For this reason, accurate RF power detection is important in both RF receivers and transmitters. RF Schottky peak detectors combine a temperature compensated Schottky diode peak detector and buffer amplifier in a small package. The RF input voltage is peak detected using an on-chip Schottky diode. The detected voltage is buffered and supplied to the VOUT pin.
