Signal Network Analyzer - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Very simple, take the ad8302 from analog devices, and you are almost done.

Add a directional coupler, a Rf signal source and thats it.

For more details see the ad8302 datasheet.

Maybe u would like to order the evaluation board...

it often. and want to visit with other users

Unfortunately, the AD8302 method of measuring phase is not very accurate near the match ( 0 degree and 180 degree). Also, it works best with signals that are both nearly the same. So you need a lot of ways to contrive this, and to keep account of attenuators and gains.

I am sure it can be useful, especially in transmitter monitoring and in control loops, and even to be the heart of a cheaper network analyser, but I am thinking that real industry network analysers are unaffordable to guys like me for a reason.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
