hi!
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.

Hi,

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!

Regards
Jens

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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
