Hittite Microwave Corporation releases its successive detection log video amplifier (SDLVA) that operates over the full 0.1 to 20 GHz frequency range. Available in a compact 4 mm² SMT and miniature connectorized module packaging, the HMC613LC4B and the HMC-C052 are suitable for designers with space and power-constrained applications, including EW and ELINT receivers, DF radar, ECM, and IFM systems. Also appropriate for pulsed signal applications requiring high amplitude accuracy, the device converts RF signals at their input to an output voltage that is proportional to the logarithm of the RF input signal amplitude. It uses a successive compression topology which delivers a high logging range of 62 dB, and it allows for the processing of high level signals up to 3 dBm.
