Datasheet: Logarithmic Amplifiers

Source: Microsemi Corporation

Microsemi-RFIS manufactures a wide variety of Detector Log Video Amplifiers (DLVAs), Extended Range Detector Log Video Amplifiers (ERDLVAs), and Successive Detection Log Video Amplifiers (SDLVAs). These products are made possible by our recent acquisition of ALC Microwave.

DLVAs are designed and manufactured using a combination of surface mount and hybrid technology. They are highly ruggedized to meet the most stringent of mil-spec environments. Extended Range DLVAs incorporate high gain limiting amplifiers for increased dynamic range (down to thermal noise x RF bandwidth). Microsemi-RFIS DLVAs are an economical choice for logarithmic detection systems requiring less than 20 MHz video bandwidth or systems requiring CW immunity over a wide dynamic range.
