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

PMI Model No. SDLVA-418-65-16MV-12DBM is a successive detection log video amplifier (SDLVA) that operates between the 4.0 GHz to 18.0 GHz frequency range. It has a dynamic range of 65 dB, a nominal log slope of 16.7mV / dB. Furthermore; it has been designed using cutting edge technology which provides stunning performance and reliability in a compact package making it an optimum solution for high speed channelized receiver applications.
PMI Model No. SDLVA-100M18G-CW-70-MAH is a CW-Immune, Successive Detection Log Video Amplifier operating in the 100 MHz to 18.0 GHz frequency band. It features an SPST on the RF output which allows for the RF to be turned off when the RF signal is below the adjustable threshold setting. In addition, the output switch can be controlled externally by enabling the external trigger. Furthermore, an LVTTL output is provided for time-gaiting or sampling to assist in digital system integration.
