120 MHz, 50 DB Demodulating Logarithmic Amplifier
The AD640 is a complete monolithic Logarithmic Amplifier A single AD640 provides up to 50 dB of dynamic range for frequencies from dc to 120 MHz. Two AD640s in cascade CAN provide up to 95 dB of dynamic range at reduced bandwidth. The AD640 uses a successive detection scheme to provide an output current proportional to the logarithm of the input voltage. It is laser calibrated to close tolerances and maintains high accuracy over the full military temperature range using supply voltages from 4.5 V to 7.5 V.
The AD640 comprises five cascaded dc coupled Amplifier limiter stages, each having a small signal voltage gain of 10 dB and a -3 dB bandwidth of 350 MHz. Each stage has an associated full-wave detector, whose output current depends on the absolute value of its input voltage. The five outputs are summed to provide the Video output (when low-pass filtered) scaled at 1 mA per decade (50 A per dB). On chip resistors CAN be used to convert this output current to a voltage with several convenient slope options. A balanced signal output at +50 dB (referred to input) is provided to operate AD640s in cascade.
The logarithmic response is absolutely calibrated to within l dB for dc or square wave inputs from 0.75 mV to 200 mV,with an intercept (logarithmic offset) at 1 mV dc. An integral X10 Attenuator provides an alternative input range of 7.5 mV to 2 V dc. Scaling is also guaranteed for sinusoidal inputs.
The AD640B is specified for the industrial temperature range of -40C to +85C and the AD640T, available processed to MIL-STD- 883B, for the military range of -55C to +125C. Both are available in 20-pin side brazed ceramic DIPs or leadless chip Carriers (LCC). The AD640J is specified for the commercial temperature range of 0C to +70C, and is available in both 20-pin plastic DIP (N) and PLCC (P) packages.
