Post subject: RF To DC COnverter
Mon Apr 25, 2005 6:35 am
I have a VHF & UHF TV Transmitters
which produce 500W. I run this through bi-directional coupler. I need
a circuit that will take RF signal in VHF & UHF band and produce
0 to10 VDC adjustable. Any ideas or sources.
Thank you very much

Good day. Check
out both Analog Devices and Linear Technology. I believe they both make
an IC that does RF to DC. They might not have the DC voltage range that
you want, but you should be able to scale it.

I designed a similar circuit using
a Analog Device's AD8010. You will need to couple >60db from your
signal. You will have to scale the output.
It seems the detector
is the easy part of this circuit, what are you going to use for a coupler?

A correction to my previous post,
I used an Analog Device part AD8310.
