frequency-to-analog signal converter
Pasternack Enterprises, Inc.
Pasternack presents 50 ohm RF detectors. These are active coaxial parts used for converting RF signal strength into proportional DC voltage at its output, which is also known as video out. Three basic types of 50 ohm detectors are provided. These include zero-biased Schottky diode detectors, biased Schottky diode detectors and log detectors. All three types of 50 ohm detectors have differing frequency capabilities in the range of 100 KHz to 26.5 GHz, based on type and style.
Common use of Pasternack 50 ohm detectors is in checking and measuring signal strength from an RF source. Several of Pasternack's RF and microwave 50 ohm detectors are compliant with RoHS and REACH. The 50 ohm detectors are provided only with SMA and BNC connectors. The detectors come with a maximum input power rating in the range of 10 dBm to 23 dBm. They have a RF signal threshold (tangential sensitivity or TSS) of between -54 dBm and -40 dBm.
