Crest-Factor RF Detector Extends Cell Phone Battery Life by 20 Percent
The ADL5502 is the industry’s first dual-function RF detector in a single package that combines an RMS detector with an envelope detector to facilitate the crest-factor measurement of complex signals. Accurate power measurement and crest-factor calculation allows the performance of the cell-phone power amplifier to be optimized and reduces signal distortion in mobile phone designs. The new RF detector features a
