Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: How to build Power sensors using Schottky diodes

I want to build a power sensor with an operating frequency range from DC to 8 Ghz. The maximum power level is 20dBm. Is it possible to build one for this power level using Schotkky diodes. are there any special Schotkky diodes available for this purpose.

there is no problem to do a power sensor for this band or power. What you should consider is to put some attenuator before the diode and there are plenty of diodes that could be used!
