Signal Network Analyzer - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Very simple, take the ad8302 from analog devices, and you are almost done.
Add a directional coupler, a Rf signal source and thats it.
For more details see the ad8302 datasheet.
Maybe u would like to order the evaluation board...

hi all,
is there a user group for the ad8302 anywhere ?
i bought the eval bd from analog devices and use
it often. and want to visit with other users
the closest thing i have found is a yahoo group
that uses the 8302 with a 9851 dds and some s/w

Unfortunately, the AD8302 method of measuring phase is not very accurate near the match ( 0 degree and 180 degree). Also, it works best with signals that are both nearly the same. So you need a lot of ways to contrive this, and to keep account of attenuators and gains.

I am sure it can be useful, especially in transmitter monitoring and in control loops, and even to be the heart of a cheaper network analyser, but I am thinking that real industry network analysers are unaffordable to guys like me for a reason.

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
